A Year Lost and Found Summary

A Year Lost and Found by Michael Mayne

A meditation on illness, suffering, redemption and hope by the author of The Enduring Melody. Michael Mayne writes, 'This unashamedly is a very personal book about one year of my life and what a sudden, mysterious, knockdown kind of illness does to you and your family; bout doctors and their still limited knowledge in certain areas; and about a God who stops you dead in your tracks and sets you groping for answers.' '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.' From the Foreword by Frances Dominica, All Saints Sisters of the Poor This remarkable and unusual book by one of the great Anglican priest-writers speaks to all of us who look for illumination 'on the other side of the dark'. It makes a poignant complement to Michael Mayne's last book, The Enduring Melody, which was written twenty years later, in the final months of his life.
