The Fire Within: St. Teresa of Avila, St. John of the Cross, and the Gospel-On Prayer
by Father Thomas Dubay
This is a wise and accessible work of synthesis and systematization of the thought of St. Teresa of Avila and St. John of the Cross on authentic mystical contemplation. One caution – if you have yet to read more basic works on prayer, contemplation, and meditation (and their historic definitions) you may want to pick up, “Prayer Primer
” by the same author and read it first. Otherwise, you will likely miss many of the important distinctions and directions that these great saints have to offer us in our pursuit of God.
Yours in Christ, Dan
