By his own admission, Carl McColman sets out to revisit the initial efforts of Evelyn Underhill in bringing the "Ivory Tower" distance of mysticism to the life of everyday Christians. I think Carl does a great job of "hand-holding" (and I mean that in the best sense) and in that sense is more verbose and repetitive than Evelyn's style. Those finding the somewhat aged work of Underhill a bit inaccessible will most certainly enjoy Carl's approach.
