Chosen from Edith Stein's published and unpublished writings by Maria Amata Neyer and translated by Susanne Batzdorff This book is intended to give the modern reader guidance and instruction for every day of the year through the words of Edith Stein. These pages are not meant for cursory reading; every sentence needs to be thoughtfully perused, prayerfully considered. Only then will it yield nourishment and inspiration for the inner path and lead to that which Edith Stein wanted above all to teach: to live at the hand of the Lord. The texts for meditation span a period of nearly 25 years in her life: the youthful atheist thinks about her life and the alarming events of her time; the mature, professionally active woman struggles with themes of self-discovery and the spiritual shaping of the human being; the Christian philosopher attempts to rise to the meaning of existence; finally, the great contemplative gives advice for introspection and serenity.
