In the dark ages, a light shone out to illuminate much of England and spread out into parts of Europe. The torch of that light was St. Aidan and the Lindisfarne community-the light is Christ. The pilgrimage and prayer journey of Aidan, however, speaks just as loudly to seekers today as it did in days past. Writing about the life of St. Aidan in FLAME OF MY HEART, David Adam illustrates how this seventh-century saint can still teach us to pray.
Written in engaging and accessible prose, this book is ideal for study groups and individuals. Prayer exercises at the end of each chapter help readers incorporate into their minds and souls the wisdom Aidan and those of the Celtic period still provide for us today. Includes poems, blessings and 17 black-and-white line drawings.
