Every Earthly Blessing by Esther De Waal
Book Description"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.

Life Giving Way, Paperback (June 2006)» View all books by Esther De Waal
St Benedict's writing is steeped in scripture. In the Middle Ages, his Rule was seen as a digest of the Bible. It therefore crosses the divides of the church and speaks to Christians of all denominations. Approaching the Rule in a prayerful way, this commentary aims to help those who seek a contemplative centre in a busy life in modern times.
