Reading Evelyn Underhill

Advent & Christmas 2017

During the Advent and Christmas seasons of 2017 we read Advent with Evelyn Underhill, edited by Christopher Webber. Christopher Webber has carefully selected inspirational passages from Underhill’s most significant works, providing readings for every day of Advent and Christmas — and sharing the timeless treasure of Underhill’s spiritual vision.

For each day of Advent and Christmas, beginning on November 27, and continuing through the Feast of the Epiphany, January 6, Webber provides a short reading from Underhill's works. Each day ends with a sentence for meditation and a prayer.

Evelyn Underhill is commemorated on June 15 in the Episcopal Church as a theologian and a mystic.
