Join Sarum College Bookshop for an author talk with Gillian Ahlgren, author of Enkindling Love: The Legacy of Teresa of Avila.
Wednesday 30 November at 5pm
Teresa of Avila and John of the Cross, two of Christianity’s great spiritual teachers, communicate insights about human creativity and resilience that challenge many of our habits and assumptions. How do their insights give us access to more effective ways of growing in wisdom and character and facing life’s challenges together?
Gillian Ahlgren is Professor of Theology at Xavier University (Cincinnati, Ohio), and also the Founding Director of the Institute for Spirituality and Social Justice. A specialist in the Christian mystical tradition, she develops resources for personal and communal renewal and lectures widely on spiritual practices for the transformation of self and society. She is the author of six books, most recently Enkindling Love: The Legacy of Teresa of Avila (read full review by the Washington Independent Review of Books).
