This is not a a pious piece of fluff on these holy women, the four Teresas. Gina Loehr has instead penned a down-to-earth book that will inspire the reader by the lives of these women.

Three of these women are Carmelites - St. Teresa of Avila, St. Therese and St. Teresa Benedicta - while Blessed Teresa of Calcutta started out as a sister of the order of Our Lady of Loreto and eventually founded her own order, the Missionaries of Charity.

Loehr, who earned a master’s degree in theology from Franciscan University of Steubenville, presents these holy women as human, showing how they eventually became saints – and that we can follow their example and become saints, too. Loehr quotes from the writings of these women and provides endnotes and a bibliography. Perfect for group or private study with questions for reflection at the end of each chapter, this book is highly recommended to those interested in these four Teresas.
