Abstract

Following the success of 'John of the Cross' (Continuum 2010) and 'Return to the Mystical' (Continuum 2011), Dr Peter Tyler completes his 'mystical trilogy' with a penetrating analysis of the life, work and context of St Teresa of Avila - this most popular and influential of all saints. To coincide with her anniversary year in 2015 he presents an accessible volume on the saint including the background to her life and times, her mystical theology, instructions on prayer and relevance for today. The book consists of three parts - the context of Teresa's life; an examination of the texts themselves and finally an exploration of Teresa's relevance to our 'postmodern world' including chapters on Teresa and psychology, mindfulness, meditation and personal development. This book is a major contribution to Teresian scholarship and a welcome addition to her anniversary celebrations. -- Publisher's summary
