Review

<DIV>

<B>‘Enterprising, extensive, a book that any so-called Christian would be the better and wiser for reading slowly and thoughtfully....
</B>

<B>A must for all religious booksellers, for students, teachers and all professions interested in philosophy, psychology, ethics, theology, law and medicine. --Kirkus Reviews

Book Description

A reprint of Evelyn Underhill’s timeless study on the the nature and principles of worship and the main forms in which they find expression in Christianity. In the belief that religious experience is the starting point of theological reconstruction, the author analyses here the nature, characteristics and principles of how man relates to God. The way and degree in which ritual, symbol, sacrament and sacrifice become part of worship is also examined and, subsequently,  its principles are illustrated,  as embodied in the main types of cults.

I have read and re-read this book for three decades. If you are a Christian of any denomination this book should be in your head. It is a wonderful introduction into worship as a human experience, the specific Old Testament rites and ceremonies, and their relationship to Christian worship. All ministers should be conversant with this text as it will enrich their understanding of the worship experience to the edification of their congregations.

I am delighted it is reprinted this year. Make haste! Buy! Read! If you do, you will be back for MYSTICISM, another excellent introductory work that complements this one.

I have not purchased this item from amazon.com. My copy is a 1957 Harper Torchbooks 1st paper printing of the 1937 original. These are available under used books in the amazon listings, too. I think the current edition pricey, but I have had my copy from a used bookshop thirty years ago! What would I know about pricey?

I was a little worried when I ordered the lowest priced, used book. The description said it was in good shape but showed some wear on the spine and the corners of the covers. I had pictured a dog eared mess, but when it arrived and I opened the package (which btw was very secure and protected, in a vacuum packed vinyl bag) the book looked way better than I was expecting! It was clean free of bent corners or notations. I am now putting it to good use.
