Product Description

Self-Portrait In Letters, 1916-1942

(The Collected Works of Edith Stein, vol. 5)

Edith Stein (Teresa Benedicta of the Cross) 
Translated by Josephine Koeppel, OCD

Edith Stein comes alive through these warm, totally attentive letters. She joins a deeply sensitive heart with her keen intelligence, revealing herself to be a wise mentor and a caring friend available to anyone who approached her. Here we learn what was truly important to her: the total well-being of those who treasured her letters enough to preserve them even while suffering the havoc of war and oppression. This volume offers the first English translation of the majority of her surviving letters, with 4 photos and an index of recipients.
