Product Description

From the Publisher

From the Foreword by Frances Dominica, All Saints Sisters of the Poor


'Michael Mayne writes the kind of theology that works for those of us who switch off when we hear yet another dry sermon or turn the pages of one more eminently forgettable book. His theology is carved, often extremely painfully, out of real life, his life, with all the experiences, encounters and exchanges which make his life - and each of our lives - unique. Reading A Year Lost and Found again, I find the same freshness and integrity which thrilled me then. We are pointed to eternal truths in an ever-new way.'

About the Author

MICHAEL MAYNE was Head of Religious Programmes at BBC Radio, Vicar of Great St Mary's, Cambridge (the University Church), and Dean of Westminster. In addition to The Enduring Melody, his books include Learning to Dance and Pray, Love, Remember (DLT) and This Sunrise of Wonder (HarperCollins).

Format: Paperback
I read this extraordinary book almost in one sitting. It is divided into two sections. The first is an honest, detailed account of a year in the life of a busy working clergyman, on the brink of a career break, who falls unexpectantly ill with a mystery disease. After a year of exhausting and painful struggle the author is diagnosed with the condition known as ME or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. He faces the biggest opportunity of his life - royal appointment as Dean of Westminster Abbey - with his illness still largely untreated.
It is in the the second half that the book's greatness lies. Mayne's unravelling of the true significance of Jesus's death on the cross as a gesture of God's sharing in human suffering is incredibly moving and, for me, wholly persuasive. To all who seek answers to the deepest questions we can ask about the purpose of human experience, this is a must-read.

This is a lovely, reflective and honest piece of writing, but in a culture now (thankfully) more aware of ME, it felt a little dated. It was not un-put-downable - I found it slow at times - but it was worth the effort of reading through. The most striking thing was the author's candid descriptions of his struggles to accept the limitations of illness and the uncertainty of that time. He avoids temptations to romanticize or spiritualize his experience - instead helpfully and courageously, he tells it as he found it. Recommended!

An encouragement to M.E. sufferers. Mayne, as ever, is compassionate, thought provoking and helpful.
