Basil in Blunderland

Basil in Blunderland by Cardinal Basil Hume.

Published by Darton Longman and Todd, 1997.

Illustrated by Sarah John.

Catholicism with a Wonderland slant: Hume was a former Benedictine who became the Archbishop of Westminster: this book arose from a child’s game of hide and seek.

Comparing Christianity to the Caucus-race in Alice in Wonderland, Hume quotes the Dodo: “The best way to explain it is to do it.”

From the cover:

Now it is a fact that my spiritual life is more a wandering in Blunderland than a resting and relaxing in Wonderland. I would guess that most of us would say the same of ourselves. . . . What matters, however, is that minds and hearts should be involved in the search for God, where the seeking and the finding go hand in hand. It is the process of getting to know God and learning to love Him. It is intimacy with Him that we seek. We try to go beyond every experience of knowledge and love, which we have now, to another experience, which is beyond our grasp but not entirely out of reach.

Available on amazon: Basil in Blunderland
