What Are People Saying about this Title?
This is a fine introduction to St. Edith Stein as a model for us in the art of living at Gods hand. That was her method, her way and her source of courage and holiness. Even after forty years of learning from St. Edith, I found this book very interesting and informative. Sr. Josephine Koeppel, OCD, Author of Edith Stein, Philosopher and Mystic, and translator of St. Ediths works, including Life in a Jewish Family, The Science of the Cross, and Self-Portrait in Letters: 19161942
