The Celtic hymn, 'Be Thou my vision' keeps its popularity after twelve centuries because of its vivid response to our deep human need for God. Following the great success of his earlier books, David Adam takes us through this well-loved hymn, discovering the spiritual riches that are hidden in all our lives.
The Celtic tradition often speaks more directly to us than foreign spirituality: The Eye of the Eagle explores the inner resources which are our native heritage. It includes exercises so that we can experience for ourselves the many aspects of vision, which is such a vital part of every Christian life.

This rich and diverse collection of texts newly translated from Latin, Irish and Welsh marks a landmark in the study of Celtic Christianity. In these pages we find saints' lives, sermons, liturgy, monastic rules, penitentials and exegesis a well as devotional texts, poems, and works of theology. The effect is to create a sense of a Christian civilisation that is deeply life-arffirming, imbued with a pervasive sense of divine presence and wonderfully at ease with itself.
