Reviews

'Almost as good as another visit to Iona.'
-- Owen Barfield

'A sheer joy for all with any feeling for Celtic Christianity, and a treasure for those who want the authentic text of poems, creeds, legends and anecdotes from this entrancing tradition. It's an anthology I instinctively want to keep within reach, a splendid selection, meticulously edited.'
-- David Read, Minister, Madison Avenue Presbyterian Church

'It is, indeed, a treasure of an anthology and I will enjoy dipping into it over and over again.'
-- Madeleine L'Engle
