This multiple award-winner by Benedictine Father Mark O’Keefe offers yet another “way”: The Way of Transformation, a contemporary presentation of St. Teresa’s classic—considered her “operations manual” for anyone genuinely committed to the spiritual life.
“The Way” is straightforward enough. Where many of us encounter spiritual landmines is with that other word: “Perfection.” As Father O’Keefe deftly explains, when Teresa talks about perfection, she doesn’t intend the futile pursuit of some idealized flawlessness (or “perfectionism”). Ever practical, Teresa considers the virtues—especially love of neighbor, detachment and humility—as the bedrock of her spirituality of prayer. For her, living the virtues leads to authentic human fulfillment and thus to transformation—a true becoming of who God intends us to be.
This is a great book to accompany your “way” this Lent. With eight short chapters and helpful questions for personal reflection and thorough bibliography and index, The Way of Transformation is an excellent resource to deepen (or jump start!) your prayer life and relationship with God.
