Review Text

    This book is essential reading for anyone interested in the transformative power of prayer. I have read it twice; on the first occasion I read it through and on the second, stage by stage, i.e. in parallel with "The Interior Castle."Dr. Ahlgren's work is powerful and revealing. It is not an exaggeration to say that a spirit of love pervades this book, at the same time as gently and clearly explaining the extraordinary insights of the original work by Teresa of Avila. She faithfully honours the original work and brings clarity and insight to it in ways that help us to really understand it's power and truth - and it's message of how we can all bring the love of a living God into our lives.Language is powerful and in the right hands can inspire and encourage the spirit to move in us. This book achieves that. It is not too much to say that this book is transformative in itself. I will read it again, and probably again. A fine work, and inspirational to the practice of private and silent prayer.

    A wonderful companion to Teresa's Castle. Profound and deep in its own right. I gained so much from this book.
