I have previously read, in translation, The Ascent of Mount Carmel and The Dark Night of the Soul (St. John of the Cross) and The Interior Castle (St Teresa of Avila). They are not always very organized. If you want organized, Fire Within is great. The author pulls together things that are scattered in these and other works and makes some points a lot clearer... for starters, that there is a *universal* call to contemplation. Yes, laypeople too. So you might want to read it ;)

About This Item
This book is the fruit of Fr. Dubay's many years of study and experience in spiritual direction and in it he synthesizes the teachings on prayer of the two great doctors of the Church on prayer--St. John of the Cross and St. Teresa of Avila--and the teaching of Sacred Scripture.
But the teaching that Fr. Dubay synthesized is not collected from Teresa and John for contemplatives alone. It is meant for every Christian and is based on the Gospel imperative of personal prayer and the call to holiness. All the major elements of these great teachers are ordered, commented on and put in the context of their scriptural foundations. Here is an outstanding book on prayer and the spiritual life written by one of the best spiritual directors and retreat masters of our time, and based on the writings of the Church's two greatest mystical doctors.
