Description

The forgotten truths of Celtic Christianity provide a portal into a spiritual way of experiencing the world.

The Celtic Christians beheld the world around them and perceived the divine life of God as upholding every aspect of the material universe. Their prayers and poems, their liturgies and theological interpretations give Christians a sense of faith that is confident in a merciful and infinitely creative, healing God.

In this introduction to Celtic Christian spirituality, Mary Earle presents primary texts from the Celtic Christian tradition--selections from the works of Pelagius, Eriugena and St. Patrick, as well as prayers and poems from Wales, the Outer Hebrides and Ireland. These essential writings direct humanity to read the "book of creation" as well as the Bible, and call us to remember that "matter matters." Earle's engaging facing-page commentary explores how faithful Christians and spiritual seekers can take inspiration from this lively tradition's ways of embodying and living the gospel.

When Christianity came to Ireland, they embraced the faith with incredible vigor. Celtic Christian Spirituality: Essential Writings--Annotated & Explained discusses the faith of the Celtic Christians and how their fervency played well into their everyday life and spirituality. Drawing from many of their writings studied well by Mary Earle, Celtic Christian Spirituality is a very much recommended read for anyone who wants to better understand the spirituality of the Celts and their haste in embracing Christianity.
