The Dialog of Catherine of Siena is a practical and compelling work of
Christian mysticism. St. Catherine of Siena, a Dominican Tertiary, wrote it
"during a state of ecstasy while in dialogue with God the Father." The book
contains a dialog between the "Eternal Father" (God the Father) and "a human
soul" (St. Catherine). In it, the Eternal Father describes, through many
different analogies, allegories, and metaphors, the spiritual life of
humankind. In his description, the Eternal Father emphasizes the importance of
cultivating virtue, continually praying, and the need for obedience. Written at
a time of spiritual and political upheaval, the Dialog of Catherine of Siena
remains relevant even to the present day, and any reader will profit from the
sound advice throughout this dialogue. Instructive and profound, the Dialog of
Catherine of Siena inspires with a revelation from God.
