“We used to discuss the ridiculous superstitions about God and Religion; the absurd prejudices of patriotism and decency; the grotesque encumbrances called parents.”
(Gwen Raverat in Virginia Woolf and the Raverats)

An inspirational encounter with the world of Christ, an uplifting study of the man, his times and his teaching. It reveals how the true meaning of Jesus' teachings, as found in the canonical gospels and many of the ancient apocryphal and other early Christian texts, is that of the ageless, eternal and mystic path to God.

Exhaustively researched from Old and New Testament writings, the Dead Sea Scrolls, the writings of the Greek mystics, the gnostics, the Mandaeans, the Manichaeans and other mystics of Jesus' era, it reflects the yearning of all Christians and seekers throughout the centuries to penetrate the unresolved mysteries of their faith and attain direct, personal mystic experience of God.

Woolf & the Raverats arrived today in fine condition. We are very pleased with it and look forward to reading the lovely type on fine paper.
Jim Bishop

It's a fascinating and, of course, unique book.
Peter Kettle

The publication of these letters in one volume brings into focus an unusually compassionate aspect of Virginia Woolf. Jacques Raverat's lucid, unsentimental letters to Woolf are dictated to his wife, the artist Gwen, as he is dying in France. Very moving, they are a compelling read.
(Henrietta Garnett, great niece of Virginia Woolf and author of Family Skeletons)
