Life Journey

(1 customer review)


This is the first book by talented artist Mary Fleeson, a Community Companion who lives on Holy Island (see Life in Christ for her second). Mary invites you to accompany her on a journey, ‘to share a quiet walk, some thoughtful moments and a few challenges…This is not a book of answers. I only hope to share with you a little of what I have discovered since becoming a Christian and encourage you to ask questions of yourself, of others and of God.’ Dr Michelle Brown, Curator of Illuminated Manuscripts (including the Lindisfarne Gospels) at the British Library, in her foreword to this book, comments how Mary has reflected, in her vibrant organic images, scribal work and words, the prayer lives of the Celtic Saints who first brought the Gospel to Lindisfarne; the labour that has been a perpetual feature of life on the island through the centuries; and the beauty of the artwork in the Lindisfarne Gospels. This is a wonderful gift book.

  1. Many readers of Caim will be familiar with the beautiful artwork produced by Mary Fleeson at the Lindisfarne Scriptorium on Holy Island. Did you know that much of her work has now been brought together and published in a beautiful new book ‘Life Journey’ .

    Roy Searle has commended it as ‘a beautiful book – one that invites the reader on an inner journey of discovery, adventure, awakening, reflection and faith. Creative and inspired, the book resonates with the author’s own deep faith and touches all the senses through its wonderfully crafted and created pages. The artwork is outstanding and the helpful poems, prayers, meditations, Bible quotations, design notes and suggested activities make for a fascinating treasury and companion for all who are exploring or seeking to deepen their faith.’

    Congratulations to Mary on this superb achievement (artwork, words and layout) into which she has poured so much of herself. Congratulations are due also to her husband Mark who has not only supported and encouraged Mary all through this project, but has made his own vital technical contribution, especially in the way he has taken much of the intricate detail of Mary’s artwork and given it new life of its own through the pages of this book.

    This book makes a wonderful present. Perhaps for yourself!
