The Practical Mystic
Evelyn Underhill and Her Writings
Edited and introduced by Raymond Chapman
Publisher:Canterbury Press imprint of Hymns Ancient & Modern Ltd
Published:31 January 2012
The word ‘mystic’ sends some Christians running in the opposite direction: they are convinced that mysticism is only for ‘high fliers’! But Evelyn Underhill demonstrates that anyone who longs for God can be described as a mystic; she shows us how to start on the journey to come closer to God and how to make gentle progress. She herself was a most practical and down to earth human being - someone to whom no aspect of human experience was foreign. Raymond Chapman’s excellent biographical introduction sets Evelyn Underhill in the context of her time – and demonstrates her relevance to the 21st century.
