When it comes to grace, no one writes with more elegance, humor, and well, grace, than Robert Farrar Capon. Since his first publication hit shelves in 1963, Robert’s voice has served as one of the guiding lights for the Christian faith from generation to generation.

Now, in this final book for Mockingbird’s series of Capon reprints, Robert has welcomed readers new and old to join him at his home on Shelter Island, NY. The Youngest Day comprises reflections on the seasons and the nature of God’s divine love. Originally published in 1983, this slim, poetic volume offers some of the sweetest, most evergreen musings in the Capon canon. For the cover, Robert’s widow Valerie requested four precise representations of their home in all seasons: a snow-laden footpath, west-facing Adirondack chairs, the island inlet, autumnal vistas. He begins, “If you are in the habit of associating resurrection only with spring, if you think of winter as somehow incompatible with rebirth–let me show you something…”

Robert Capon is the High Priest of grace. No one has so fervently, fearlessly and uncompromisingly promoted this central tenet of the Christian faith. Many pastors and theologians talk grace but quickly find a way to take it back. In The Youngest Day Capon exposes this theological bait-and-switch and lets the magnificence of God’s grace shine through in all its glory. In this book we find a master theologian at the top of his game. – Dr. William McNabb
