The Autobiography of Saint Therese of Lisieux
The Story of A Soul.
Paperback 166 pp
Translated by John Beevers.
Called "The Little Flower of Jesus," Therese of Lisieux is known the world over for this collection of spiritual insights, set down at the request of the superior of the Carmelite order to which she belonged. She was only 24 years old when she died, but she left behind in this manuscript her attempt to "make the kindness of God better known." She certainly succeeded. As her translator, John Beevers, says, "It is a book which moves peasants and popes."
