Teresa of Avila, God Alone Suffices. Paperback, 335 pp.
In this biography, internationally-known author Jean-Jacques Antier recounts Teresas life in vivid detail, from her earliest years as a romantic and worldly young woman to her passionate love for Christ and subsequent efforts to refound the Carmelite Order. He carefully explores the spiritual and psychological depths of a remarkable woman--one who has left an indelible mark on the Church and the world.
