Summary Read First Chapter image missing

"I like the authors' clear insights into Teresa from a psychological point of view. The authors not only know about Teresa but, more significantly, 'know' her in an empathetic mode. Thus the writing is smooth, never strained, as they call upon the examples of other spiritual men and women whose lives shed light on Teresa's. Their familiarity with psychology translates into eminently readable prose." -- Mary E. Giles, California State University, Sacramento

This is a passionate book about a gifted woman. It is written from a psychological viewpoint using the developmental point of view of a number of contemporary developmental psychologists, both men and women. It is a critique of contemporary American shallowness and is an apologia for a feminist ethic and a feminist sense of prayer in a world dominated by competition, abstraction, and unthinking labor.

Francis L. Gross, Jr. is Professor of Religion at the College of Arts and Sciences at Western Michigan University and is the author of a number of books on developmental psychology and religion. Toni Perior Gross is a psychotherapist in private practice.
