Summary

Summary

This book is designed to introduce the reader to Teresa's life and teaching, setting her within the multifaceted historical and religious perspectives of sixteenth century Spain. In Teresa we meet a woman who retains a sparkle and originality that is timeless. She was a reformer of warmth and humor, of prayer and practical ability; a woman who was mother, sister, friend, teacher to many and who, by her life and writings, continues to inspire Christians of our own day.
