Offers the voice of a modern pioneer in the mysticism of everyday life."Mysticism is the art of union with Reality. The mystic is a person who has attained that union in greater or less degree; or who aims at and believes in such attainment."Evelyn Underhill (1875-1941), an Anglican writer and spiritual director, was the author of several classic works on mysticism. Increasingly regarded as an outstanding voice in twentieth-century spirituality, she was largely responsible for the modern rediscovery of mysticism. For Underhill mysticism was not simply an esoteric corner of Christianity-it was a normal expression of authentic spirituality with relevance for all people in everyday life.
