The Light Invisible presents a series of interconnected supernatural short stories by the celebrated and prolific English author Robert Hugh Benson (1871-1914), a member of the famed Benson literary clan. The author's brother Arthur remarked of this volume, "The Light Invisible always seemed to me a beautiful book .... It was the first book in which he spread his wings, and there is, I think, a fresh and ingenuous beauty about it, as of a delighted adventure among new faculties and powers." Robert Hugh Benson enjoyed a career that lasted little over a decade. In addition to a great many non-fiction works, he authored a series of twenty novels and short story collections that combined a specific moral orientation with an astonishing popularity among the general public of the early twentieth century. As an Anglican and later a Catholic priest, Father Benson was in great demand as a speaker in both England and the United States. The most sensational English convert from the Anglican Communion to Catholicism since John Henry Newman, Benson was a son of the Archbishop of Canterbury. He wrote from a Catholic perspective, but with real understanding and sympathy for the Protestant position.

I really enjoyed these inter-connected short stories written by Catholic priest Robert Hugh Benson in the late 19th century. The stories blur the line between the spiritual plane and our everyday life. Read full review
