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.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Extract featured.--,
This is the last book written by a greatly appreciated author... In chapter 2 this contemplative writes beautifully and truly about the life of prayer... This book distils the significance of [St Augustine of Hippo's] life and reflects on his spiritual journey more insightfully than I have seen anywhere else.--Sanford Lakoff
Extract featured.--Sanford Lakoff
'Sister Maria writes intelligently, passionately and devotionally...This is not a book to be rushed. Each page has personally validated nuggets, which excite the heart, but then have to be slowly savoured, absorbed, lived.'--Sanford Lakoff
'This is a book full of realism and hope, scholarly but easy to read, and worth reading slowly.'--Sanford Lakoff
