The Interior Castle is more than a book. It is a powerful image of the mystery of the human person. It is the soul of St. Teresa of Avila, who journeys through the castle from one dwelling place to another mapping out a feminine, yet warlike, program for the Christian spiritual life. It is also the last book Teresa wrote: in 1577, five years before she died, she recorded, to the best of her knowledge, the experiences for which she praised God. Reading Teresa herself is indispensable. The authors of this study edition designed it as a springboard to reading and understanding Teresa’s text. They present a chapter of Teresa’s book, followed by a review of the progress of her thought and the principal ideas in each chapter. Next they give interpretive notes: doctrinal, historical, and sociological. Then because Teresa wanted her writings to be in harmony with sacred Scripture, they point out scriptural texts that support her ideas. Finally, the authors show how teachings of the present-day church demonstrate both how Teresa's basic notions were correct and how we can apply her principles to our times.

This excellent introduction to one of the most important spiritual classics of the Christian tradition is now reprinted in a new edition by popular demand. Full of solid insight, keen intuition and wise counsel for the spiritual journey, the book situates St Teresa's work in the context of the Carmelite tradition and of a contemporary understanding of holistic spirituality. One chapter is devoted to each of the seven spiritual mansions of The Interior Castle. From Ash to Fire is particuarly useful for those who are at the beginning of the spiritual journey, but has many valuable insights for all readers. Carolyn Humphreys uses easy to follow, lay person's language to describe each spiritual stage, relating it to the corresponding human dimension. You may recognize yourself in many of her vivid examples that relate to everyday experiences. She delicately brings to light that 'authentic humanness comes through a person who is dependent on God and interdependent on others, ' and thus guides you along the way with sound advice. Carolyn Humphreys is a registered occupational therapist and a Secular Discalced Carmelite.
