Format: Paperback
Dr. Dianne Traflet's new book on Saint Edith Stein is perfect reading for a private retreat. Not only is there insightful biographical information included, but Dr. Traflet reveals the deeper meanings and sources of this unique saint's conversion to Christianity and her superior intellectual understanding of the doctrines and values of Catholicism. Even as she faced capture and death at the hands of the Nazis, Edith Stein believed and lived the teachings of her church in a way that can inspire all. An excellent book, very readable and portable.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By D. Kovacs on November 20, 2011
Format: Paperback
The beautiful photographs alone are worth the price of the book.
The author explores the three pillars of the saint's spirituality,
namely: the Eucharist of the Body and Blood of Christ our God; the
Blessed Mother of God; and the Precious and Life-Giving Cross.
The author quotes abundantly from the saint's own writings. I could
have done without the author closing the book with one of her own poems.
But that is a minor quibble with a book that leads to a much greater
understanding of one of the most important saints of the 20th century.
St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross, pray for us.

I will re-read this book many times. Dr. Traflet's expose of the Eucharistic spirituality of Saint Edith Stein is the most beautiful I have ever read on what a Eucharistic Spirituality should look like.

I was happy to really "learn" about Edith Stein.Her contribution to the church, seeking God through study and teaching.Finally... finding God in solutude in Carmel and giving her life for "her people".What a story!
