FROM ASH TO FIRE, A Contemporary Journey through the Interior Castle of Teresa of Avila
From Ash to Fire is a contemporary reading of Teresa's Interior Castle, an all-time classic describing the soul's journey toward transforming union with God. Humphreys devotes one chapter to each of Teresa's "mansions", i.e., steps along the path to union with God in prayer. Using examples and anecdotes of today's life situations, Humphreys makes the text accessible and easily understood by laypersons and "non-professionals". The book is therefore an excellent introduction to Teresa's classic work.
