Description - Walking to Emmaus by Eamon Duffy

Professor Eamon Duffy is by any reckoning a scholar of the first rank. He has revolutionised scholarship in his field. He is a man of great intellectual courage and integrity. As he has shown in his recent book "Faith of Our fathers", Duffy is also a man of deeply held religious belief who struggles with the problems of being a Christian in the modern world. Now in "Walking to Emmaus" we see yet one more aspect to his intelligent, imagination and personality. Professor Duffy is in regular demand as a preacher and the giver of addresses on religious and spiritual matters. He has assembled here the best of these, many given to undergraduates in a University setting and has written a strong autobiographical introduction explaining how his life as a scholar relates to his childhood, upbringing and deeply held religious belief. Born into Republican Ireland he now finds himself part of the British academic establishment and this apparent incongruity has given him special insight into the needs of young people and those who wish to be both radical and traditional. The topics range from the new-found interest in monasticism in out time to a new understanding of St Valentine's day, taking full account of the spiritual and fleshly needs of his audience. "Walking to Emmaus" will delight Eamon Duffy's admirers and increase their numbers.
