Knowing the author personally, I anxiously awaited the finished product. Having heard Msgr. Barr speak in person on Celtic Spirituality, the book generates his enthusiasm and personality. The stories are wonderful and the suggested applications can easily be adapted to a persons everyday life. I never realized what a difference it makes knowing the author, when I read it, it is almost as if I can hear him. A great book to pick up and open to any chapter to be fed for the journey.
