Between 1924 and 1938, Evelyn Underhill compiled two personal prayer books for use when conducting spiritual retreats at Pleshey (the retreat house for the diocese of Chelmsford). The prayers were carefully selected and include quotes from a variety of theologians and writers in Christian spirituality, as well as her own very rich, metaphorical and theologically deep prayers.

These collections are now available for the first time.

Press Reviews

In the diocese of Chelmsford we have always treasured our association with Evelyn Underhill and her love for what is now our Retreat House at Pleshey. It was therefore tremendously exciting to discover her handwritten collection of prayers. This book now makes those prayers available to everyone. To read them and to pray them though is to enter into the heart and experience the spirituality of one of the most significant Christian writers of the 20th century.

- Stephen Cottrell, Bishop of Chelmsford
