Sr. Teresa is a tour guide through the mansions of prayer with the utmost reverence for our Lord, obedience, and charity for the faith. She gives practical insights to scripture, and how to know what is really from God, and what is from the deceiver. I loved it, and found it highly comforting. I couldn't put it down and took so many notes that I've referred back to. Highly recommended.
If you are into mystics and special spiritual saints, this book is what I totally recommend! It gives you an explanation of what the SOUL is all about in the form of a crystal/diamond castle with GOD living in the center.
St Teresa of Avila gives in a sense, a roadmap on how to start in the first mansion and travel to the seventh one, which is where one will find GOD and answers to prayers and many of the soul's life questions.
This book has inspired me to pray more, meditate more and go into my own SOUL/PRAYER ROOM each day to search for answers etc.
One more thing I will add is that before I discovered this book, I first read a book on paperback and audio CD by Carol Myss called Entering the Castle. She based her teachings on this book which St Teresa of Avila wrote to her nuns.
For me, after the Holy Bible, this is the book (on Kindle and Audio App), is one that inspires me. Also, I do like Carol Myss Entering The Castle, but some of Ms. Myess teachings are her own twist on St Teresa's.
Highly recommend this book to all!
