Item description for Basil in Blunderland by Cardinal Basil Hume & Basil Hume...
Arising out of a game of `hide-and-seek' that Cardinal Hume played many years ago with two young children, Basil in Blunderland is a book to enchant and inspire.
On the day the children invited him to play with them, he had not meditated, and as a monk he was required to do half an hour of mental prayer each day. How, he wondered, could he play hide-and-seek and, at the same time, meditate? As the book unfolds we see how each hiding place in fact became a place to pray and how each suggested thoughts about the spiritual life.
With characteristic humility, Cardinal Hume ventures the title Basil in Blunderland because, he says, his life has much more often been a wandering in Blunderland than a resting and relaxing in Wonderland. He has written a very personal book of profound simplicity that will help all of us make sense of our blundering and searching after God. It is a book for everyone, young or old, believer or agnostic. Few readers will fail to gain encouragement and help from the wisdom in its pages.
