(No reviews yet) Write a Review
This rousing volume explores the lives and interweaving stories of Aidan, Bede and Cuthbert. After an introduction which tells appropriately of David Adam's ordination in Durham Cathedral, there are four chapters on each: Irish by birth, St Aidan was a monk on Iona before being selected in 635 as the first Bishop of Lindisfarne. In time, he became pastor to all of Northumbria. The themes covered are: Aidan and the open door , On firm foundations , Open hearts and hands , and Feet on the ground . Born in 673, St Bede was a monk at Jarrow on the Tyne. He is revered for his scholarly output of commentaries on the Scriptures and his famous Ecclesiastical History of the English People. His body lies in the Galilee Chapel of Durham Cathedral. The themes covered are: Bede at St Peter's Wearmouth , St Paul's, Jarrow , The loss of a friend and mentor , and Candle of the church . When he was sixteen, St Cuthbert, received a vision of the soul of St Aidan being carried to heaven by angels. He was reluctantly persuaded to become Bishop of Lindisfarne in 685, but the next year resigned his see and retired to Farne Island., where he died on 20 March 687. He was later buried in Durham Cathedral. The themes covered are: Cuthbert and the angels , Reaching out , Lindisfarne and The last days .
AUTHOR: THE REVD CANON DAVID ADAM is one of the best-loved figures in Celtic spirituality. The author of many successful books, he was for thirteen years Vicar of the Holy Island of Lindisfarne and continues to lecture, speak and act as a spiritual director.
