Life of the Spirit and the Life of To-day



Author:Underhill, Evelyn (1875-1941)
Description:For her entire life, Evelyn Underhill had struggled to explain and understand what she could only call her mystical experiences. In this work she argues that spiritual encounters do not belong exclusively to stories or to the past, but can happen to people in their everyday lives. She writes with personal passion and rigorous scholarship simultaneously, her exploration of mysticism formed by her background in Neo-Platonic philosophy and Medieval Christian spirituality. Widely read during her day, people have found her work moving and profound.
