Drawing from both her published writings and her private journals, this compilation presents a candid look at the extraordinary spiritual journey of Evelyn Underhill. We glimpse a picture of her essentially secular childhood, her early spiritual awareness, her innate sense of deep compassion for others, and the curiosity that drove her classic work, Mysticism. We see the expression of her spiritual life move from the academic tone of Mysticism to a deeper, warmer hue in her later writings and retreats. Possibly most eye-opening, we witness Underhill's profound spiritual struggle of 1923-24, unsuspected by her friends and family. For the many readers who have been moved by the writings of Evelyn Underhill, and for those who are merely intrigued by mysticism or captivated by a good memoir, this book presents a vivid and deeply personal rendering of a life that was, both intellectually and spiritually, radiant.
