As a traditionalist Roman Catholic I feel it important to note this book has no imprinture. Though seemingly easier to read, this translator has taken liberties with terms that should stay as are i.e. the term sin and hell. I do appreciate this translator's honesty with this upfront! I am also glad that her workings may in fact lead others to this amazing woman named Teresa who would become Saint Teresa. If, however one feels as I do the importance of works to have imprantures... I recommend a different edition. There is one that has a study guide to help along the way.

Tauna Do you mean this translation doesn't have an imprimatur? I ask because my book has a nil obstat which is just as good and Teresa of Avila is considered a doctor of the church. So even the most traditionalist Catholic should be fine with her writing! I assuming it's the translation you were commenting on.

R Yes. I am referring to the specific translation. Happy reading! :-)
