The Celtic Way of Prayer : Recovering the Religious Imagination, Paperback Book

The Celtic Way of Prayer : Recovering the Religious Imagination Paperback


While it may seem that everything that can be said about Celtic spirituality has been said, this outstanding book has already established itself as a classic and as essential reading.

Its beauty and wisdom lingers in the mind and in the heart. First published in 1996, it has sold tens of thousands of copies throughout the world and a new edition is to be welcomed.

Esther writes as a historian and as a spiritual guide, avoiding the sentimentality that is so easily associated with Celtic spirituality.

She draws on its rich literary and artistic traditions and its earthy realism to make vital and life-giving connections between the Celtic Christian world and the toughness and challenges of our own world.

Here is a spirituality that we can live by with honesty, commitment and truthfulness.

Chapters include: Journeying, the Presence of God, Image and Song, time, Dark Forces, The Cross, Praise and Healing for the World.
