In The House of the Soul Underhill brings St. Paul’s image of the human being as a “temple of the Holy Spirit” down to earth with a metaphor as rich and as solid as when it was coined by St. Teresa. Underhill’s house possesses both a ground floor of biologically conditioned natural life with animal instincts and affinities and an upper floor, a supernatural life with supernatural possibilities and a capacity for God.

In Concerning the Inner Life the author calls Christians in general and full-time ministers and Christian workers in particular to a quality of inner life that makes them “contagious Christians; that makes people catch the love of God from them. This is not mere pious fluff,” she proclaims.
