Conceptions of Divine Love

Conceptions of Divine Love by Santa Teresa de Jesus
By: (1515-1582)

In "Conceptions of Divine Love," Santa Teresa de Jesus explores the complexity and depth of the human experience of love for the divine. Her writing is both profound and personal, drawing on her own spiritual journey and experiences with God.

Through her poetic language and keen insights, Teresa offers readers a fresh perspective on the nature of divine love and how it can transform our lives. She delves into topics such as the role of suffering in spiritual growth, the importance of humility and surrender, and the power of prayer in deepening our connection to God.

One of the most compelling aspects of Teresa's work is her ability to blend philosophical inquiry with heartfelt emotion. She challenges readers to consider the ways in which their own conceptions of love may be limiting their understanding of God's infinite grace and compassion.

Overall, "Conceptions of Divine Love" is a thought-provoking and inspiring read for anyone interested in exploring the depths of their own spirituality and relationship with the divine. Teresa's profound insights and poetic language make this book a timeless and relevant resource for seekers of all faith traditions.

Book Description:

Conceptions of Divine Love was written in 1577. St. Teresa wrote this with the idea of explaining certain words found in the Book of Canticles. When her confessor read the title of her work, he ordered her to immediately burn it, which, of course, she did. But one of her nuns had copied the first seven chapters, which was then published in 1612. Here, Father John Dalton has translated only four of those chapters in 1852.
