All the important parts influeced her view of her dark mind-world and its development. Thirdly we read about two men who influenced her sympathy towards nonbelievers: She had no spiritual director, but it wasn't much of a disaster in the end.
She preferred prayers in her own words, though towards the end the prayers already there became a source of comfort. When she couldn't believe in Heaven, her life on earth became her heaven for now. Fourthly, we see how the Carmelite community shaped her beliefs and path. She could find true charity through her job guiding novices though being pretty young herself , which she eventually appreciated, and missed after she could no longer do it.
Here we find people whose imperfections she had to guide: Martha de Jesus jealousy, attachment and outsiderness issues and Sr. Saint-Joseph shunned and later expelled to mood issues - uncontrollable anger , both whom she friended and consoled.

Fifthly, we conclude the story through looking at all the Manuscript parts. I do disagree with what author thinks re: I feel it's a 'why not both?
Here one learns of things that could be overlooked in parts B and C, and the part about to whom they were addressed as I said above. Reading the Notes is in my opinion also important.

A very well worth reading kind of a book: May 18, Sarah Law rated it really liked it. This is a hard read but insightful and persuasively written. Not recommended as a first book on Therese, but otherwise, absolutely: There is an insightful chapter on contemporary theological scandals and Nevin offers his own conclusions on why and how Therese remains such a This is a hard read but insightful and persuasively written.
There is an insightful chapter on contemporary theological scandals and Nevin offers his own conclusions on why and how Therese remains such a compelling figure. It's made me re-read and re evaluate Manuscript C again.

Katheryn rated it really liked it Nov 25, Therese was prompted to confront a world devoid of the consolation of religion all the while living to the fullest the life of a professed cloistered nun. She experienced the dark tunnel of loss of faith--at least the loss of faith in an afterlife, all the while slowly dying from tuberculosis. Here, Therese is shown to have had the moral and physical courage of her heroine, Joan of Arc. Cuts through all of the insipid fairy Kindle Edition Verified Purchase.
Get to know Therese at the table of those who live in the darkness of unbelief. Very insightful book about the dark path to sainthood of saint therese. So you should read it if you are interested in knowing deeply about her life. I have many, many books on St. Therese as I love her so much so I bought this one, excited and ready to read it when it arrived. I was so disappointed. It was very theologically written to such an extent that I found it very hard to follow.
It seemed to me sometimes the author went out of his way to use words I've never heard in my life in order to appear he was very knowledgeable, but it didn't impress me; it just discouraged me and made the book more tedious to read. I wish he had just written for little souls, friends of St. Therese, without making it so difficult to understand. See all 6 reviews.
