30 Days with Teresa of Avila (Week 1 of 6)

Please join us for a brief but profound foray into the heart and mind of one of the greatest doctors of the interior life, Saint Teresa of Avila! If you've been following the book club but have had trouble finding time to commit, this book promises to be the perfect introduction for your participation.

The following paragraph is taken from the back of the book:

30 Days with Teresa of Avila is the third book of Dan Burke's Navigating series that brings the wisdom of the saints into your hands.  These unedited letters of Teresa of Avila to her friends offer a rare window from which to gaze upon the Saint's genuine witness and pragmatic advice on pursuing an intimate friendship with God.  Dan Burke and Anthony Lilles provide rich reflections to encourage a deeper and more prayerful reading of these fascinating letters to those who want to sit at the feet of this great doctor of the interior life.  

With an introduction and reflections written by our very own Dan Burke and Anthony Lilles, this book speaks right to the heart of those seeking to deepen their spiritual life.
