Description

St Cuthbert, monk and bishop of Lindisfarne, was a man of extraordinary charm and ability. A preacher, teacher and pastor, he was also reputed to have gifts of prophecy and healing. David Adam, one of the most prolific and best-loved writers in the Celtic tradition, vividly relates the story of this central figure in Celtic Christianity.Drawing out the qualities which make Cuthbert so important in our own time, "Fire of the North" celebrates the saint's ready sense of God's presence and eager response to nature. The narrative is complemented throughout by prayers specially composed to help us experience the direct force of Celtic spirituality for ourselves.

Review quote

Drawing out the qualities which make Cuthbert so important in our own time, Fire of the North celebrates the saint's ready sense of God's presence and eager response to nature. The narrative is complemented throughout by prayers specially composed to help us experience the direct force of Celtic spirituality for ourselves.', Christian Marketplace, Christian Marketplace 'This little book will make you appreciate a great saint.', Barry Vendy, The Good Book Stall 'Cuthbert, who for some years was both monk and bishop of Lindisfarne is obviously a great source of inspiration for writer David Adam, who himself was vicar of that same Holy Island for some 13 years. Having researched his subject well, the author presents us with a fascinating and evocative story, which draws us into the life and times of this important Christian figure.', John Birch, Faith and Worship - Christian Prayers and Resources
