My review:

This is a small gift book. Within its 80 numbered pages are lovely pictures of natural landscapes, abbey ruins, and Celtic designs. It is a unique, featuring great content including historical information on early Celtic Christianity, along with the author's own original, contemplative Celtic prayers. I liked it, but overall I thought the photos and graphics were more impressive than the substance.
