Sintesi dell'editore

What would it be like to listen to great figures of our faith discuss their struggles, life lessons, and spiritual insights? A number of remarkable Christians have bequeathed to us their autobiographies. Now, you can access their words and understand the contexts in which they lived with a master scholar and teacher as your guide.

In this course, you will explore 14 inspiring writers who have revealed their spiritual yearnings and encounters with the transcendent. As you do so, you will find new intimacy with each writer, fresh perspectives, and horizons for discovery.

Starting with The Confessions of St. Augustine, you will move chronologically through the classics of the Christian tradition and modern spiritual masterpieces. You will explore Ignatius of Loyola and Teresa of Ávila, whose mystical autobiographies laid the foundations for their respective religious orders. Then you will look at the moving spiritual relationship between Blaise Pascal and his sister, Jacqueline; the intellectual vivacity of John Henry Newman; and the "Little Way" of Thérèse of Lisieux.

As you move into the 20th century, you will encounter lay Catholic philosophers Jacques and Raïssa Maritain, beloved writer GK Chesterton, and the anguished genius of Simone Weil. Finally, you will look at two men executed in Nazi Germany: Dietrich Bonhoeffer and Alfred Delp, SJ.

Join Dr. Higgins on this literary, spiritual, and altogether unforgettable odyssey today.

Stirring stuff

Prof. Michael Higgins is clearly a great storyteller. But in this audio course, he is introducing the personal stories told by several spiritually luminaries themselves. Why not just read the autobiographies themselves? IMO, you should do so. Higgins provides the context to enjoy and understand the autobiographies. For example, I read Augustine's Confessions when in HS. Higgins shed helps you understand Augustine's story in light of its historical impact and through much life wisdom. I highly recommend this course.

It's a series of lectures

My fault for not spotting this when buying the book. it is not a book, but a series of lectures. The narrator has a strong American accent, hard to understand.
