9781561010868: The Leap of the Deer: Memories of a Celtic Childhood

In a heartwarming style that blends remembered people and places with theological reflection, O'Driscoll recalls his childhood, adolescence, and coming of age in the world of rural Ireland. Here we find the vibrant richness of Celtic spirituality as it was woven through the daily life of a Protestant boy growing up in Catholic Ireland in the early twentieth century.

Review:

Those who relished A Doorway in Time will be delighted that O'Driscoll's memories of an Irish childhood rooted in Celtic tradition have not been exhausted. Once again O'Driscoll transports his readers to that 'warm and loving ghetto' of mid-20th century Ireland where he grew up - and grew into his priesthood. A consummate storyteller, he explores with gentle humor the nature of priesthood, spiritual growth, tradition and the church in society. Reader will find much to engage the imagination in this series of images and reflections; yet, charming though they are, these vignettes are merely the lens through which O'Driscoll focuses his sense of connectedness with a spiritual tradition that both encompasses an ancient past and offers intimations of of grace for the present. -- Publishers Weekly
