Irish Spirit: Pagan, Celtic, Christian, Global


Price: $19.95
Since the dawn of history, Ireland has been renowned as a place of spirit. Irish Spirit celebrates Ireland's unique relationship with spirituality in a sparkling collection of essays. The reader is presented with the voices of talented writers from Ireland and the Irish diaspora as they describe what Irish spirituality means to them personally. Each contributor shares a personal perspective of a spiritual quest that leads the reader to some surprising places.

In an increasingly pluralistic world, Irish Spirit shows how different religious visions can illuminate and enliven one another. From fairy rings to the Internet, the continuing diversity of spirituality is presented as one of its deepest mysteries.

Irish Spirit begins with the dolmens and explores the inheritance left by an unknown people. This important book looks at the influence of the ancient Celtic beliefs, which is still very much in evidence today. The ways that Christianity has influenced contemporary Irish spirituality and some of the more destructive aspects of the Irish spiritual heritage are acknowledged.
