Evelyn Underhill (1875–1941) was one of the greatest spiritual writers of the twentieth century. Living most of her life in England, Underhill used writing as a vehicle to express her passionate search for the infinite life. Her philosophy transcends generations and her legacy as a pivotal figure in Christian mysticism endures today. In this comprehensive biography Dana Greene expertly captures Underhill's true essence. She gives us a thorough account of Underhill's development as a mystic and theologian and also explores beyond to the heart of who she was as a person. The connections Greene makes between Underhill's personal life and work create an in-depth and accurate portrait of this extraordinary woman.
Historian and biographer Dana Greene is an Underhill scholar, Dean Emerita of Oxford College at Emory University, and editor and author of seven books on women and religious history, including The Living of Maisie Ward (University of Notre Dame Press, 1997).
