Not a Good Introduction to the Mystical Doctors

I have tried to get into this audiobook twice now. The first time I got 5 hours (out of the 16 total) into it, and this most recent time 8 hours. There was just too much sin, guilt, need for repentance, fear of everlasting damnation for my taste - not that these aren't realities, but there needs to be some balance with God's great love and mercy. Perhaps that was coming in the second half of the book, but I'm not willing to stick around to find out.

If you want a good introduction to the mystical doctors such as John of the Cross, Teresa of Avila, Catherine of Siena, etc., I would suggest two other routes. Either read their works directly, or find a good book with daily meditations for reflection and prayer from their writings. These would be much more balanced ways to learn about these important theologians of the Church.

wow!

(Audible review). Outstanding! Suddenly my 90-min commute wasn't long enough! I knew early in the book that this was going to be special. I hung on to every word! Will be a guiding companion on my journey.
