I have read Teresa of Avila a number of times. Edith Stein does a wonderful job of paraphrasing and translating the meanings of St. Teresa's writings.
The hidden life
Published by Thriftbooks.com User , 21 years ago
As she converted to Christianity, Edith Stein joined one of the strictes orders-that of Carmelites. That was because she thought that only behind convent walls she could completely detach from the outside world and devote herself to God. So, when we talk about the title of the book:"The hidden life" we do not talk only about the life in a convent but also about the base of Edith Steins life that was contemplation of a hidden life of Good in everything that exist. As the convent itself had its spiritual life, Edith Stein contributed it with her hagiographic essays about Carmelite saints. Therefore here we can find inspired interpretations of lives of some well known or less known Carmelite saints like St. Theresa of Avila or St. Elizabeth. The rest of the book contents some other religious essays and dialogues that deeply marked Edith Steins life during her stay in a Carmelite convent. An inspired and interesting book.
