The Youngest Day: Shelter Island’s Seasons in the Light of Grace

by: Robert Farrar Capon

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 one of his most intimate works, Robert welcomes readers young and old to join him at his home on Shelter Island, NY, for a series of 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. 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 Farrar Capon was an Episcopal priest, writer, and chef who authored many books, all of which insisted on good humor, good food, and the grace of God. He lived with his wife Valerie on Shelter Island in New York, until his death in 2013. In 2016, Mockingbird was granted the rights to republish 5 of Robert's out-of-print books. The first of these, a never-before-released collection of essays, More Theology and Less Heavy Cream, delivers fictional dialogues about theology and cooking. The second, a retelling of the gospel story but in 1990s Cleveland, is the unconventional Man Who Met God in a Bar. Third was a re-publication of Robert's first best-seller, Bed and Board, a timeless manifesto on law and grace in marriage. Perhaps the most off-the-wall is Exit 36, a novel about adultery, suicide, and the mysteries of divine love. Lastly, The Youngest Day meditates on time and the passing seasons, each correlated with what are traditionally called "the four last things": Death, Judgment, Hell, and Heaven—we shouldn't assign favorites but this is probably ours.
