Book Description: "Here we are, little half-animal, half-spiritual creatures, mysteriously urged from within, and enticed from without to communion with spiritual Reality. If and when we surrender to this craving and this attraction, we enter thereby—though at first dimly—on a completely new life full of variety, of new joy . . ." —Evelyn Underhill Evelyn Underhill is widely regarded as one of the greatest Christian mystics. This compilation of published writings and private journals offers a candid glimpse of her inner life, from the rare spiritual awareness that she possessed as a child, to the intense curiosity and intelligence that made her one of the most respected writers and thinkers of her day. Possibly most moving, this volume also reveals Underhill’s profound mid-life spiritual struggle. For the many admirers of Evelyn Underhill, and for anyone who enjoys reading accounts of the spiritual lives of others, this book presents a vivid portrait of a life that was truly radiant.
