    The Path of Light

    ,
    Though the dawn breaks cheerless on this Isle today, My spirit walks upon a path of light. For I know my greatness, Thou hast built me a throne within Thy heart. I dwell safely within the circle of Thy care. I cannot for a moment fall out of the everlasting arms. I am on my way to glory. Alistair Maclean (from p.115) During his long and influential ministry, David Adam has found inspiration in prayers written by the Celtic peoples of Britain and Ireland. This lovely volume contains a series of meditations on forty prayers, whose rhythm and earthiness offer a more natural way of conversing with God. For if we are to know God, we must spend time with him, sharing our concerns – as the Celtic peoples did so simply and naturally. And as we learn to rest in the presence of the One who is ever with us, so we will be drawn increasingly into the mystery and wonder of his love.

    The Rhythm of Life

    Celtic Daily Prayer by David Adam Life has its rhythms. We all need to be able to cope with its ebb as well as its flow. We have to survive its darkness as well as its light. We face dry times as well as times of richness. To survive this intricate pattern, we need to have an overriding rhythm of prayer. We need to know that whatever is happening, we are loved by God and in Him we live and move and have our being.

    The Holy Island of Lindisfarne

    David Adam has been captivated by the beauty, wonder and holiness of Lindisfarne since first glimpsing its fairytale castle from the train as a young boy. In this absorbing volume, he shows the island's human face, revealing how Lindisfarne and its people have responded to trial, tribulation and triumph in the course of a long and vibrant history. This tiny place witnessed one of the last stands of the 'British' Celtic peoples against the invading Anglo-Saxons in the 6th century. It has been the home of saints and scholars, most notably St. Aidan and St. Cuthbert, and famously produced the medieval masterpiece known as the "Lindisfarne Gospels". Less familiar to readers, perhaps, will be that the island experienced the first recorded Viking invasion in 793, and was involved in the 17th century Civil War and the 18th century Jacobite Rebellion. Today its ruined 11th century Priory and 16th century Castle - later redesigned by the great English architect Edwin Lutyens - draw pilgrims and visitors from all over the world. Wherever you walk on Lindisfarne, the past impinges on the present...In relating afresh many of the island's legends and stories, David Adam's lovely volume affords the reader a wonderful sense of all there is to discover, just beneath the surface.

    The Voyage of St Brendan: Journey to the Promised Land

    The Voyage of Saint Brendan – Journey to the Promised Land (Translated from Latin by John J. O’Meara) John J. O’Meara has here translated one of the most famous and enduring stories of western Christendom, the Navigatio Sancti Brendan Abates, written in Ireland perhaps as early as the year 800. While the routes of Saint Brendan’s journeys remain a subject of controversy, the tale itself is of great interest – a strongly integrated text which derives from several centuries of Irish literary tradition. The Voyage of Saint Brendan presents the late Professor O’Meara’s translation of the only scientific edition of the original Latin text, with his introduction, and is illustrated by the relevant woodcuts from a German version of the tale, Sankt Brandans Seefahrt, printed in Augsburg in 1476.

    The Wonder of the Beyond

    ,
    by David Adam Over fifty joyous years, David Adam has exercised a rich and profoundly influential ministry. His origins were humble if romantic: his father, an itinerant laborer, and mother, a traveller, had their first momentous encounter at the west end of Loch Ness on a summer’s day in the early 1930’s. They were married within a week. David was born in Alnwick, Northumberland, a few years later, and encouraged from his earliest days to use his eyes to absorb what was around him. He writes: “ I lived in a land of open fields, moorland and beaches: a land of castles, of history, of heroes, saints and story… a radiant world… full of the mystery of existence.” The aim of The Wonder of Beyond is primarily to help us enter David Adam’s own words, ‘ a wonder-filled world’; to open our eyes, ears and hearts to what is about us; to become truly aware of the glory of God in our midst.

    Walking the Edges: Living in the Presence of God

    ,
    Walking the Edges – Living in the Presence of God – David Adam What does it mean to live in the presence of God? Combining story with spiritual reflection, poems and prayers, Walking the Edges invites us to journey to the borderlands, the place inhabited by Christians willing to extend themselves in adventurous living for the sake of love. Here, on the edges of the unknown, God the great Other is ever to be found. Each time we open our eyes to beauty, to wonder, to mystery, our lives are renewed. Every time we fail to reach out beyond the solid and the comfortable, we kill the life that is in us though the outcome of various events in our lives may be unknown; God continually calls us from death to life, promising an abiding presence and glorious future. Walking the Edges draws on the stories of St Martin, St Ninian, St Patrick, St Oswald and St Cuthbert. It also offers an insight into David Adam’s childhood, his early life as a coal miner, and his unexpected call to the pastoral ministry which has been a blessing to so many around the world.

    The Book of Creation: The practice of Celtic Spirituality

    ,
    In the Celtic tradition, God speaks through two books: the Bible and creation. Influenced by the wisdom tradition of the Old Testament and the mysticism of John’s Gospel, Celtic spirituality sees creation not simply as a gift, but as a self-giving of God. His image is to be found deep within all living things: sin might bury his living presence, but never erases it. His voice can be heard speaking through all created things. For centuries, the view that the world is alienated from God has damaged our understanding of creation, but today, as many are rediscovering their Celtic heritage, we are again learning to reverence creation as the dwelling place of God. This original and exciting book takes us on an exploration of each of the days of creation as recorded in Genesis and introduces us to a very practical Celtic spirituality, which will open our eyes to recognize the presence of God all around.
