The editors have assembled, organized and introduced a rich collection of the prose and poetry of Christians from Brittany, Ireland, Scotland and Wales. Although many of the works are translated from modern or ancient Breton, Irish, Welsh and Scottish Gaelic and from Latin, all flow with grace and feeling. The works from over a thousand years ago provide profound insights on the issues we face today and on how we can address our local problems through the love of all creation. The modern works are intensely personal but all have the ability to touch readers far from the Celtic homelands. A wonderful introductin to Celtic, Christian or Celtic Christian literature and an excellent springboard for wider studies. Readers unfamiliar with the geography and history of the Celtic lands might wish to read with a map in hand and balance the anothological approach with the works of J.Phillip Newell, David Adam, John O'Donohue, Edward Sellner, Thomas Cahill and Peter Berreesford Ellis.
