Not a bad book if you are looking for a simple easy to read book on the Celtic church. The books strengths revolve around its simple truths, strong organization, and fluid and easily read style of Mitton. If you are interested in the Celtic church, this is a good place to start
This book is by far the best book on the subject of Celtic Christianity I have ever encountered. The author not only has a superb knowledge of the subject, but has found ways to bring the knowledge and practice of the Celtic Saints into today's life. I would recommend this book only if you are willing to have everything you thought you knew about Christianity challenged and your life changed through a deeper relationship with God. This and Esther De Waal's "Celtic Way of Prayer" make a great starting point for the study of Celtic Christianity. I cannot recommend them highly enough. As the Irish say "Beannacht Dé leat" -- God's blessings be upon you.
