In this title, major spiritual writer returns to examine basic Christian truths and the experience of resurrection through terminal illness. This is a book of hope and encouragement. Maria Boulding was a Benedictine nun of the enclosed Stanbrook Community in Yorkshire. She was a considerable scholar particularly of liturgy and of St Augustine. In the last months of her life, she wrote this remarkable book recounting her experience of the risen Christ, as she endured painful terminal illness. Drawing heavily on St Augustine, but also St Benedict and St Teresa of Avila, she writes with profound understanding of how in later years she has returned to fundamental Christian beliefs and experienced them to be true.
