The Christian Year is a classic book from the unique insight and spiritual wisdom of Evelyn Capel. She covers the main festivals and events in the Christian Year: Advent, Christmas, Epiphany, Lent, Easter, Ascension, Whitsun (or Pentecost), St. John’s tide, and Michaelmas, always linking them back to the Gospels and Christ.
Capel considers the cycles of our world: the changing seasons; life, death, and resurrection; waking and sleeping; breathing in and breathing out. Throughout, Capel never loses sight of the overarching cosmic themes that influence the spiritual rhythms of the Earth and human beings.
