Teresa of Ávila (1515-1582) is one of the most beloved of the Catholic saints. In 1562, during the era of the Spanish Inquisition, Teresa sat down to write an account of the mystical experiences for which she had become famous. The result was this book, one of the great classics of spiritual autobiography. With this fresh translation of The Book of My Life, Mirabai Starr brings the inimitable Spanish mystic to life for a new generation, with contemporary English that mirrors Teresa's own earthy, vernacular Spanish, and that presents us with--four centuries after Teresa's death--someone we feel we know: a woman intoxicated with God yet filled with an overflowing love for the world.

About the Author

Saint Teresa of Ávila (1515–1582) was a prominent sixteenth-century Spanish mystic, Carmelite nun, and writer during the Counter-Reformation. She was also a reformer of the Carmelite Order and is considered a founder of the Discalced Carmelites along with John of the Cross. In 1622, forty years after her death, she was canonized by Pope Gregory XV, and she was named a Doctor of the Church by Pope Paul VI in 1970.
