Binding: eBook



In this book Peter Slattery gives a refreshing account of the Carmelite spiritual tradition and the important people who have shaped its history, including Elijah, Mary, Teresa of Avila, John of the Cross, Thérèse of Lisieux and Titus Brandsma.

The Carmelite spirituality that emerges is not simply something from the Middle Ages or the 16th century. With its emphasis on love and freedom it is an extremely relevant gift for today’s world.

As possibly the only ‘straightforward and succinct explanation (in English) of the Carmelite tradition from its foundations to the present day’, this book will be welcomed both by newcomers to the Carmelite spiritual tradition and those who have had actual experience of it.
