    review The Celtic Way of Prayer: The Recovery of the Religious Imagination 109 The Celtic Way of Prayer, The Recovery of the Religious ImaginationWow I really enjoyed this book I have been pursuing a keen interest in Celtic Christianity for about a year now and this book was a great encouragement along that path The author does an excellent job first with making the great history of Celtic prayers available to a lay person like me I don't believe she translates them herself but she pores through lots of old works and has picked out wonderful prayers which she uotes liberally These prayers will be incorporated into my own life The thing I most love about these prayers is the way they are molded into the daily fabric of your life so that prayer becomes almost a way of being not so much an action pray without ceasing says ThessaloniansSecond she does a really good job of navigating between the extreme tendencies to which one could easy fall prey to when it comes to Celt

    review The Celtic Way of Prayer: The Recovery of the Religious Imagination 109 The Celtic Way of Prayer, The Recovery of the Religious ImaginationThis book gives an overview of traditional Celtic spirituality with its emphasis on seeing God in the world around us and in everyday mundane tasks and being aware of God’s presence in darker times Esther de Waal describes how she found the Celtic approach helpful in her own life I found some of this and some of the other commentary a little simplistic There is some helpful background information to give a context to Celtic spirituality The book is chock full of Celtic prayers blessings and poems and for me it served best as a rich anthology of these

    review The Celtic Way of Prayer: The Recovery of the Religious Imagination 109 The Celtic Way of Prayer, The Recovery of the Religious ImaginationA lovely exploration of the Celtic tradition of prayer Part anthology part meditation this is a lovely introduction for those curious about Celtic spirituality I use the Northumbria Community's Celtic Daily Prayer anthology and was pleased to come across many of the sources The Celtic Way of Prayer enriches my experience of using Celtic Daily PrayerDe Waal grew up in what sounds like a high church heavily liturgical tradition and felt a sense of freedom and continuity when she discovered and began practicing Celtic spirituality I grew up in a proudly low church even anti liturgical tradition and felt that same freedom and continuity when I learned the creeds and started following the liturgical year and now choosing a

    review The Celtic Way of Prayer: The Recovery of the Religious Imagination 109 The Celtic Way of Prayer, The Recovery of the Religious ImaginationI found this book unusual for the large amount of uoted material which was usually introduced with a personal reflection as opposed to a critical analysis For example how do the uoted prayers differ in their theology or their regional or histor

    review The Celtic Way of Prayer: The Recovery of the Religious Imagination 109 The Celtic Way of Prayer, The Recovery of the Religious ImaginationSo much beauty in this and yet my biggest takeaway is a reminder of just how psychologically fucked up the premise of Christianity and Abrahamic theology truly is Still the bibliography alone was worth the read
