The Path of Celtic Prayer | Calvin Miller

I have read Miller for a few years now and this is one of his latest books. He is on a boat on his way to Ireland and is hit by a desire to investigate and emulate the Celtic mystics. He writes this book after his time of learning and praying and it is a beautiful book.
 It is decorated with Celtic knots, borders and crosses. It includes a bit of background to each type of prayer and exercises we can follow in the pursuit of prayer. It is a very experiential book, in which we are drawn into a deeper understanding of and experience of prayer. The Celts had an amazing relationship with nature and the elements and it permeates their prayers. I enjoyed it and will re-read it often because of its refreshing approach to an ancient custom.

I have also read 'Once Upon a Tree' and ' Into the depth of God' by Miller and enjoyed them both.
