St. Therese of Lisieux > Carmelite Spirituality >
María Ruiz Scaperlanda
Teresa Benedicta of the Cross was a brilliant professor, an intellectual, a philosopher, a feminist, and a Jew. She was also a convert, a contemplative nun, a martyr of the Holocaust.
Now she is a saint of the Roman Catholic Church. Better known as Edith Stein, she is perhaps the most controversial saint in recent history. Award-winning journalist María Ruiz Scaperlanda shows how this complex woman, her culture, and the pivotal period of history in which she lived and died can lead Catholics to holiness today.
More than a biography, this gripping account calls to mind the struggle with truth, Faith, and prayer all of us must ultimately face.
