This new collection of essays brings together some of Evelyn Underhill's most enduringly valuable work, offering a unique introduction to the wide-ranging thought of one of this century's foremost writers on mysticism. Underhill, author of many books including the classics Mysticism and The Spiritual Life, was the first woman to give a series of lectures on theology at Oxford, and this volume shows the impressive range of social issues she considered in depth, including the ordination of women, the promotion of social reform, and ways of providing an enlightened education for our children.

Underhill's practical approach to living the spiritual life is also illustrated in her essays on prayer and contemplation, and on what she calls "the soul's house, that interior dwelling-place which we all possess, for the upkeep of which we are responsible - a place in which we can meet God". This delightfully clear and accessible book will offer valuable advice and true inspiration to all those seeking the essentials of mysticism in an increasingly complex and stressful world.
