Author Anne Costa did not personally know Edith Stein or St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross as Stein is also known. However, through reading the writings of Stein, Costa felt Stein became a close personal friend. In fact, the writings of Stein were instrumental in bringing Costa back to the Catholic Church. In Embracing Edith Stein Wisdom for Women Costa writes of why she thinks of Edith Stein as "a wise guide for a woman's unique role in the world today". The book is more about the love and admiration Costa has for Stein and how she was influenced by the writings of Stein than a story about the life of Stein herself.

The first chapter does give the reader information about Stein while the second reveals her thoughts and how they can influence women today. The following chapters each focus on a particular feminine attribute, how the writings of Stein addressed that attribute and how those writings and thoughts can guide women today. Costas also addresses how the writings of Stein may have influenced Pope John Paul II and his writings in Theology of the Body.
