From Christian meditation and labyrinths to Gregorian chants and pilgrimages, people everywhere are looking backward to find soulful ways forward. In Celtic Communities, Bradley explores the resurgence of interest in the practices of the early Celts of monasticism, blessing & cursing, saints, and pilgrimage and their relevance for our post-modern world and contemporary Christian life. Whether they are 'Celtic' or not, what matters is whether they work, whether they speak to people today as authentic, honest and helpful, and above all whether they help us walk in closer imitation of Christ. In this well-researched vision of an historic faith, Bradley eradicates romanticized notions of the Celtic world to reveal the essence of this unique form of Christianity and how to create communities of prayer, artistic and creative activity, hospitality and team ministry modeled on the Celtic tradition.
