Often, when we meet in sacred places, we do so not so much as fearfully and wonderfully made creatures who gather to join our souls in the worship of our Creator, we rather meet as holders of time and money who come together to be influenced by those with an agenda, even God's agenda. Patrick understood God was the Creator who delighted in the Irish finding their own place within his creation: their place of resurrection. As a result, they wandered because they could. They doodled in their manuscripts because they felt that leaving a little of their own identity in the pages of Scripture wasn't a bad thing. They retreated to solitary rocks in the North Atlantic for no other reason than to find an isolated place in which they could enjoy God's creation and his presence. They connected with a God who animated their lives and seemed to be happy with just that result. This truly fresh and inspirational take on the Gospel message leads you through the annals of Irish history to see how the gospel transformed an entire culture in a way the Irish still consider positive, that continues to inspire others, and that they could not contain to their own shores. Explore ancient Irish myths, read the words of Patrick himself, discover how the Irish search for truth and beauty was the animating feature of their faith.

Review quote

"Thomas Cahill's book How the Irish Saved Civilization got many of us interested years ago. Roger Schmidt, in his new book The Irish and the Blank Page, digs deeper into the saving power Cahill speaks of. It is all about the New Covenant and newness in general. Roger has written a well-documented yet very readable volume. I found his theological reflections especially helpful."-Ken Blue, Author of Healing Spiritual Abuse, Authority to Heal and the Gospel Uncensored.
