Abstract
Michael Mayne served as Dean of Westminister Abbey and as the Vicar of Great St. Mary's at Cambridge. He wrote five books which have received a wide readership in the United Kingdom. The published reviews of Mayne's books are nearly universally positive, recognizing his breadth of reading and his profound pastoral insights. He was not an academic theologian, but was a pastor at heart. This thesis offers an introduction to and an overview of Mayne's five books from a critical perspective, comparing and/or contrasting his writings to other spiritual works written in a similar register.
