(PUBDoubleday)''A sampling of the best ancient Celtic prose,''---Parabola. The confession of Patrick, the voyage of Brendan, the vision of Seth, a Celtic Psalter, gnomic poems, the rule of David, the kingdom of Cuthbert. Prayers, lives, maxims, plays, and hymns. 248 pages, hardcover.
"CELTIC FIRE is a wondrous treasure-house of tall 'true' stories of such well-known figures as Patrick, Brigid, Brendan, Columba, Cuthbert, and many others dear to my childhood and even dearer now. These tales of saints and beasts are a beautiful reminder that the animals are part of God's plan, doing heavenly work with often more grace than granted human beings."
"This little book will refresh and inspire your Celtic consciousness. Here are bright flashes from poets and mystics. Here are people who lived as creatures of a common, earthly creation. Here are readings to remind us all how simply life is meant to be lived and in living it simply how we find reflected eternal Mystery."
-Gertrud Mueller Nelson, author of HERE ALL DWELL FREE
