From the Back Cover
"I have written this book with one purpose and one hope, and that is that it will encourage others to discover for themselves some of the riches that I have myself found in the Celtic tradition," writes Esther de Waal. What she finds there, and invites readers to discover as well, are early Christian perspectives that are as relevant today as they were in Celtic times.
This concise and clear introduction to Celtic spirituality provides an overview of all aspects of Celtic understandings. By providing readers not only with a narrative, but with the poetry and songs of the ancient Celts, she explores Celtic views of pilgrimage, solitude, creation, and healing. De Waal also looks at their understanding of core Christian concepts, such as sin, sorrow, salvation, and the cross. Written accessibly, this book is excellent for parish study as well as individual reading.
Esther de Waal is an Anglican lay woman who is living in the Welsh borders where she grew up. She is a writer and lecturer, conducting retreats around the world. She is the author of many books including Living with Contradiction: An Introduction to Benedictine Spirituality, A Celtic Way of Prayer, and Seeking God: The Way of St. Benedict.

This book, I purchased about two years ago. It is still in great condition, though the cover is a little wrinkly from usage, and the pages are showing signs of wear and tear, but I got a lot of use out of this little book. It was in really good condition when I first got it.
