Item Description...
Overview
Millions of hearts have been touched by Therese of Lisieux's desire, not to be mighty and great, but to be a humble, little flower that would gladden God's eyes as He glances down at His feet. Canonized in 1925, she was declared a Doctor of the Church in 1997 by Pope John Paul II because of her writings that have touched generations of souls. Written in obedience to her Carmelite superior, Therese's personal story was edited and published following her death in 1897 at the age of twenty-four. Combining charming descriptions of family and community life with a sense of humor and intense devotion to God, her autobiography became an instant bestseller. Earlier editions of Therese's modern spiritual classic have often excluded passages, and refined her use of the French dialect often spoken by peasants. Edmonson translates everything and retains the complete charm of the original. The result is a complete and unabridged work, longer than most other editions available today. Careful research and attention to accurate, flowing language are the hallmarks of this new translation of The Story of a Soul, written by the saint known to us as the "Little Flower

Publishers Description
Earlier editions of Therese's modern spiritual classic have often excluded passages, and refined her use of the French dialect often spoken by peasants. Edmondson translates everything and retains the charm that Therese intended to portray through changes in style. The result is a complete and unabridged work, longer than most other editions available today. Careful research and attention to accurate, flowing language are the hallmarks of this new translation of The Story of a Soul, written by the saint known to us as the ?Little Flower.?

More About Therese & Robert J. Edmonson

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! St. Therese of Lisieux, also known as "Therese of the Child Jesus" and "The Little Flower," was the last of nine children born to Louis and Zelie Martin, at France in 1873. She was often anxious and depressed in childhood, as she suffered the early death of her mother. After she converted interiorly and began to read Thomas a Kempis' The Imitation of Christ, she joined 2 of her sisters in a discalced Carmelite convent as a nun at just 15 years old. After her oldest sister was elected prioress, Therese became a permanent novice to allay suspicions that her family was dominating the small community. She lived humbly, concealing her intense prayer life and countless sacrifices

Therese is the author of her own popular autobiography entitled The Story of a Soul, which she began writing in 1895, and she instituted a simple path to holiness now widely known as the "Little Way." She died of tuberculosis on September 30, 1897, at the age of 24 and was canonized only 28 years later, in 1925, by Pope Pius XI. She was later installed as the thirty-third Doctor of the Church by Pope John Paul II in 1997.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
The best translation available  Jul 30, 2008
I have read several versions of this classic autobiography--one of the most important Catholic books of the last 200 years--and Robert Edmonson's translation is the best. It is fresh and lively, and communicates the spirit of Therese. In fact, I was delighted to have read this translation just before taking a pilgrimage to Lisieux this past spring. While touring Therese's family home, you can imagine her childish glee, as well as her childlike devotion to Christ, just as she communicates these things in The Story of a Soul.
Buy and read this edition. It's the best!
 
A new translation, but not of St. Therese's original manuscript  Jul 16, 2008
This is a new translation, not of St. Therese's authentic manuscripts, which have been available in French since 1956, but of a version heavily edited by her sister Pauline, who made about seven thousand changes to Therese's work, virtually rewriting her sister's autobiography. Those who want to read what Therese wrote, not what Pauline wrote, should read Story of a Soul: The Autobiography of St. Therese of Lisieux, Third Edition That edition, a translation of the 1973 centenary edition of St. Therese's own manuscript by Fr. John Clarke, OCD, and published by ICS Publications, is universally recognized as the authoritative English translation.
 
An engaging translation of the original autobiography of St. Therese of Lisieux's fascinating and influential life  May 6, 2006
Knowledgeably translated and expertly edited by Robert J. Edmonson, The Story Of A Soul: A New Translation by the late St. Therese of Lisieux (1873-1897), is the engaging autobiography of the young woman known as "Little Flower" in the late nineteenth century. Reviewing her life and philosophy, The Story Of A Soul gently tells of Therese's slightly comedic, quite intelligent and always charming devotion to her church and God. Inspiring and heartwarming reading, The Story Of A Soul is very highly recommended as an engaging translation of the original autobiography of St. Therese of Lisieux's fascinating and influential life.
