About the Author:

Eamon Duffy is Professor of the History of Christianity in the University of Cambridge and President of Magdalene College. His published books are few but always command very wide attention- notably The Stripping of the Altars (Yale UP).

Review:

Mention in article on Duffy and sermons. (The American Spectator)

"In Walking to Emmaus we see yet one more aspect to his intelligent, imagination and personality. ... best of many talks and addresses ...a strong autobiographical introduction explaining how his life as a scholar relates to his childhood, upbringing and deeply held religious belief." (The Universe)

'The eminent historian Eamon Duffy, through the good offices of his publisher who serves him well in this attractive book...''He wears his learning, like all great scholars, lightly and attractively...''It is rare that such a short book can produce so much to stimulate and with which to engage. It is less rare for a hack historian reviewer to acknowledge a master of the craft. The price is absurdly cheap for such riches.' (Edward Benson New Directions)

'A...breadth of cultural and literary reference is displayed by Professor Duffy: as an historian he has a gift for telling a story and for arousing the imaginative curiosity of his audiences. His sharp one-liners enliven the texts of his sermons and lends a vivid sense of an oral communication.' (Allan White, The Tablet, 21 October 2006 The American Spectator)

'Few clerics would now publish a book of sermons but Duffy, a layman and distinguished Cambridge academic, has done so. It is remarkable, and not only for Johnsonian reasons.' (Adrian Hardiman, The Times Online The Irish Times)

'Eamon Duffy is one of this country's most prominent lay Roman Catholics...his examples are often surprising and fun...These are 16 intelligent, artful and glorious sermons from across 21 years.'
Revd Nicholas Holtam, Church Times, January 2007 (Revd Nicholas Holtam Church Times)

"These sermons ought to be in every study. They are classic and eloquent in their way of expressing the Christian faith. They are therefore both enjoyable and an inspiration for someone, who treads the steps up to the pulpit." (Peter Skov-Jakobsen, Qultures)

'These sermons are remarkable not only for their richness of language and expression, the breadth of their literary and cultural allusions, the cogency of their argument but also for their courage in revealing how even our most revered traditions can becaome agents in hidden networks of power and privilege if we do not excercise constant caution to preserve the Christian integrity of same.' 'Duffy shows himself to possess a keen exegetical eye for meanings and connections that are often easily missed.' 'These sermons deserve to be enjoyed like a fine wine: sipped slowly and digested carefully. To savour their vintage is to appreciate why Eamon Duffy is valued so highly as a preacher in Oxford and Cambridge.' - Sean O'Sullivan, The Furrow (Sean O'Sullivan The Furrow)

'This book is stimulating and inspiring, and is recommended both for devotional reading and for serious Bible study. In fact the complex arguments and cross-references are such that one can profit most by reading and pondering upon them...One can read, and then read again, this remarkable book, finding in it a great deal of food for thought.'Martin SSF, Franciscan (Martin SSF, Franciscan, January 2008)

Book Description Bloomsbury Publishing PLC, United Kingdom, 2006. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 212 x 138 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Professor Eamon Duffy is by any reckoning a scholar of the first rank. He has revolutionised scholarship in his field. He is a man of great intellectual courage and integrity. As he has shown in his recent book Faith of Our fathers , Duffy is also a man of deeply held religious belief who struggles with the problems of being a Christian in the modern world. Now in Walking to Emmaus we see yet one more aspect to his intelligent, imagination and personality. Professor Duffy is in regular demand as a preacher and the giver of addresses on religious and spiritual matters. He has assembled here the best of these, many given to undergraduates in a University setting and has written a strong autobiographical introduction explaining how his life as a scholar relates to his childhood, upbringing and deeply held religious belief. Born into Republican Ireland he now finds himself part of the British academic establishment and this apparent incongruity has given him special insight into the needs of young people and those who wish to be both radical and traditional. The topics range from the new-found interest in monasticism in out time to a new understanding of St Valentine s day, taking full account of the spiritual and fleshly needs of his audience. Walking to Emmaus will delight Eamon Duffy s admirers and increase their numbers. Bookseller Inventory # AAV9780860124238
