5 in stock

The publication of ‘Mysticism’ in 1911 established Evelyn Underhill’s reputation as a significant writer on a subject previously somewhat neglected within the Church of England. Her writings, emanating from a life of profound prayer, have become classics for those seeking to deepen their prayer lives. They combine learning, authority and readability and are written in an ecumenical spirit of striking breadth and generosity. These two essays, together with a series of letters she wrote to a novice testing her vocation to the religious life, demonstrate her gifts as writer, theologian and spiritual director.

Author Bio

Arthur MacDonald Allchin (1930-2010), best known as Donald Allchin, was ordained priest in 1957 and later became a Canon of Canterbury Cathedral. He first gained recognition as a writer with ‘The Silent Rebellion’, a study of the nineteenth-century recovery of the monastic life in the Anglican Church. He was Warden for many years of the Community of the Sisters of the Love of God and the Society of the Sacred Cross at Tymawr. His interests in ecumenism and in the language, religion and culture of Wales were reflected in his becoming Director of the St Theosevia Centre for Christian Spirituality in Oxford 1987-94 and subsequently an honorary Professor in the Department of Theology and Religious Studies at the University of Wales in Bangor.
