For many understanding of the Carmelites is limited to the lives and times of the sixteenth-century Spanish mystics. Wilfred McGreal shows that if we want a way into Carmelite spirituality we need to go back to the origins of the 'family'. In telling the story of the Carmelite tradition McGreal shows the importance of the Rule with its call to follow Christ with an undivided heart and its challenge to be steeped in Scripture.
