Our excellent value books literally don't cost the earth
A wonderful worshp resource in the Celtic tradition, that offers variety and spiritual depth. - Rev Michael Mitton[Ray Simpson] brings to [the book] both a knowledge of the actual life style of our first native Christian communities as well as that of a gifted liturgist. The book is rich in worship rites . . . Although we have virtually no records of the forms of liturgy in the ancient church of these islands, many of their hallmarks - simplicity, freshness, directness of imagery, rhythm and brevity in a poetic quality - have survived, and they are characteristic of the style and content of this excellent collection. I recommend this book as a wonderful resource for both understanding and enjoying something of the worshipping heart of our Celtic ancestors. - Russ Parker, Anglicans for Renewal MagazineThis is a rich resource book of Celtic liturgies which can be used alike for worship in church, small-group worship and individual devotion. - Renewal MagazineIt is a comprehensive resource ideal for individuals and groups wanting to rediscover the magic and solemnity of Celtic prayer and worship. - The Universe
