I thought this little book might be a good introduction to Santa Teresa's own writings, but I wasn't aware of how out of date it would be in terms of the style of writing. The author begins in total worship of Teresa but goes on to say how fortunate it was that one of her books was burnt and then berates a nun for saving a few of the pages from the fire. It all seems a bit inconsistent and yet very OTT.
