Discover an ancient way of prayer that leads us to new union with God. "Long ago," Calvin Miller writes, "when the Celts built their own rustic kingdom of God in what would later be the British Isles, their fervor in prayer washed their world in a vital revival." In uncertain and dangerous days of high infant-mortality rates, leprosy and plagues, the Celts breathed candid prayers out of the reality of their lives: Desperate prayers for protection. Praise for the God who was king over all creation. Honest prayers of confession. In these pages, Miller introduces us to six types of Celtic prayer that can connect us to God more deeply by helping us pray out of the circumstances and uncertainties of our own life. "This book proposes a kind of prayer that can end our amputated feelings of separateness from God," says Miller. What was true for the Celts is still true for us: "Hunger for Christ keeps us talking to God till our separation is swallowed up in our unending togetherness with him." As rich as the faith they describe, these pages lead us on an ancient path that gives guidance for present and future prayers, until the day the Celts longed for, when all separation is gone and we live forever in the presence of God.
Calvin Miller (1936-2012) was a professor at Beeson Divinity School. The beloved author of more than forty books, Miller was also well known as a poet, artist, novelist and speaker. His later works included (Baker), (Broadman & Holman) and (Harvest House). He summed up his rule of life in four words: "Time is a gift."

andi4 Stars Out Of 5On First GlanceFebruary 28, 2012andiQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Haven't had the chance to read this book cover to cover, actually only a glance at a few sections, but I am anticipating getting into it further. I have been concerned with the lack of a good understanding amongst some Christians of the Trinity. It would seem that the early Celtic church did not have this problem and it is so evident in their prayers as recorded in this book. I hope I will learn to pray more effectively from their example.
Rob Hess3 Stars Out Of 5May 2, 2008Rob HessI was very skeptical at first of it's possible spiritual value because of some of the history surrounding the Celts and Druids and so on. But after starting to read it, it was quite refreshing. Miller did a good job I think of keeping legend and lore separated from spiritual truths. Miller reminds us of how the faith of our ancestors can still help guide and teach us through our daily struggles.
Pamela5 Stars Out Of 5September 26, 2007PamelaThis is a beautiful, lyrical book. It enhanced my prayer life, and I enjoyed learning about the spiritual life of the ancient Celts. I especially recommend it to those who enjoy beautiful language and poetry.
