"The aim of this book is to offer everyone the opportunity to encounter Therese: that we may feel a new current of confidence flooding our prayer, flowing into our relationships, promising to irrigate every area of our Christian experience. If we yield to the impact of this young woman, we may yet find ourselves among the many whose lives she has overtaken and overturneddecisively. If we allow Therese to tutor us in the Gospel, we may rejoice to find ourselves taken into her confidenceliterally. May she partner us in prayer through these pages."
John Udris

A woman of intrepid faith, St. Therese inspired her contemporaries to embrace their littleness and cling to God, intuitively grasping Jesus' exhortation to pray to the Father with "bold confidence." And she invites each of us to this same intimacy; to lean her way of "holy daring."
