Practical Mysticism: A Little Book for Normal People and Abba: Meditations Based on the Lord's Prayer

Evelyn Underhill

Publisher: Vintage BooksFormat: Paperback

“God gives without stint all that the creature needs, but it must do its part. He gives the wheat: we must reap and grind and bake it.” -Evelyn UnderhillIn these two classics, British poet and mystic Evelyn Underhill shows herself to be one of the most authoritative modern voices on mysticism. Written on the eve of World War I, “ ”Practical Mysticism reviews the works of the greatest Western mystics, including Teresa of Avila, Julian of Norwich, and Thomas a Kempis. Underhill's goal is to guide her readers on a journey toward mystical consciousness, to teach them to see the “eternal beauty beyond and beneath apparent ruthlessness.”“ ”Abba, first published in 1940, takes as its starting point the seven phrases of the Lord's Prayer, using them as a means to propel the self toward union with God. In these important works, Underhill brings an often esoteric subject onto a practical footing, showing that the profound gifts of mysticism are not only for the few but are within reach of us all.
