Publisher's Summary

Discover why St. Thérèse of Lisieux is, in the words of Pope Pius X, the "greatest saint of modern times".

When Thérèse Martin died not yet 25 years old in the small town of Lisieux, no one could have predicted that the Catholic Church would honor her as a saint and Doctor of the Church. Having lived a modest, secluded life, Thérèse thought of herself merely as a "grain of sand" and called herself the Little Flower. Despite her obscurity during her lifetime, however, her posthumously published autobiography, The Story of a Soul, became a modern spiritual classic and continues to touch the hearts of the faithful worldwide. Join Carmelite spirituality expert Dr. Keith Egan in exploring the life, works, and legacy of this inspiring saint. These lectures provide invaluable insight into her life and writings. Whether new to or familiar with St. Thérèse, you will be inspired to read her words afresh, discovering layers of meaning within seemingly simple statements.

Thérèse's "Little Way" provides us with a powerful model of simplicity and commitment to God. Thérèse of Lisieux: Wisdom's Daughter explores the wisdom that the youngest Doctor of the Church shares with anyone who seeks to lead a more deeply spiritual, committed life. Thérèse's wisdom was a gift of God - a gift that is now available for you to cherish.

Prof. Egan may God bless you!

I have been helped tremendously by Prof. Egan through well thought-out, instructive, insightful and informative lectures on St. Thérèse, St. John of the Cross and St. Teresa of Avila- all of which have guided me in my search for a richer prayer life. I am most grateful to have been so blessed to have Prof. Egan as my guide in my constant SEEKING TO GO DEEPER, DEEPER and deeper still to encounter God through prayer.

Lovely and grounding and helpful

I have just finished this book and I am happy, and moved, and inspired by it.

The book is broken down into separate talks, each of which is fairly short, say 25 minutes, but each one on its own contains enough to encourage contemplation and thought. I listened to them one at a time and found that each was a good separately (they are very well judged, enough for a sitting), but also that, over the days, they worked well together as a series.

They are prayerful, or encourage a certain sort of prayer. I stopped to note things in every talk (little insights or quotes) and often replayed little bits to benefit from them a second time. I set aside quiet time to sit and listen to them and found this very helpful: they are not difficult to follow at all but do require (and repay!) full attention. I think I would have struggled to do something else while listening.

I quickly got used to Professor Egan's voice, and style. He is warm and good company, and has a lovely, reassuring, gentle authority. His focus always remains on the subject, and not on himself, and his sincerity and love of Terese, and of God, come through wonderfully.

I'm not sure exactly what I was expecting but perhaps this was a little different to what I expected. He puts Terese into context very well, and, in doing so, there is much in here that perhaps is not Terese herself, but rather helps you understand her and appreciate her.

And he uses her to get to God, and has helped me to use Terese's wisdom to direct myself more towards God.

I am very grateful to Professor Egan: if you read this "thank you". God bless you.

I will now try another one of his (your?) audible books.
