'Almost before I had begun this wonderful book, I was hooked.' STEPHEN COTTRELL 'Robyn Wrigley-Carr has produced a masterpiece of insight and wisdom . . .' CLARION JOURNAL 'Wrigley-Carr illustrates how Underhill wonderfully unites reflection and prayer.' DANA GREENE Beloved spiritual writer Evelyn Underhill believed that God does not just come to us at special times, but is always coming to us. But how do we recognise his coming and make ourselves open to it? In Music of Eternity, the Archbishop of York's Advent Book 2021, Robyn Wrigley-Carr shares a series of meditations exploring the nature God's comings. Skilfully weaving together Underhill's writings with the psalms and short prayers, she shows how, as Christians, we can embrace God's coming and be transformed by them in order to better love others. Full of rich warmth and encouragement, these Christian meditations will help you make the most of the Advent season and more able to connect with God at all times. Set out in four parts to take you through Advent and with questions for reflection, the Archbishop of York's Advent book can be used as a study for individuals or small groups to prepare for Christmas. Music of Eternity will help you find space to deepen your relationship with God, and to understand what Evelyn Underhill called the 'many-sided truth of God's perpetual coming to His creatures'.
