KIRKUS REVIEW

Miss Evelyn Underhill was a modern mystic who wrote beautifully and powerfully of the inner devotional life and the presence of God. She wrote much that might well be lost to this generation were it not for such a book as this which draws wisely and well from her many books and letters. Thomas A. Kepler, professor of New Testament literature at Oberlin School of Theology, with a fine sense of what is most relevant today, us through his selections a total view of Miss Underhill's thought, and in as many sections shows five aspects of her and deep insight, under the headings ""Mysticism the Way to Vital Religion"", ""Man and His Place in the Social Order"", ""Spiritual Discipline for the Devotional life"", ""The and ruits of Prayer"", and ""Christ, the Church, and Sacraments"". Clergy and laymen alike will welcome this new invitation to share the rare spirit of Evelyn Underhill.
