MYSTICISM: THE NATURE AND DEVELOPMENT OF SPIRI- TUAL CONSCIOUSNESS has long been considered the stan- dard text in the study of Western Christian mysticism. Underhill was a mystic herself, and her analysis of the process of mystical unfoldment is both erudite and beautiful. Including quotations from a wide variety of Christian mystics like John of the Cross, Meister Eckhart, Teresa of Avila, and many others, Underhill attempts to unravel what is often a very tangled subject, inviting readers into an intimate encounter with Mystery.

I am grateful to see this back in print. My copy is worn out! Ms. Underhill's extensive and sensitive study of the 'Outsiders' of the religious world is fascinating and comforting to the lonely seeker. It is fresh and a classic. The best on the subject. You will want to share it.
