The Celtic tradition has long provided one of thedeepest and most satisfying streams of spirituality.In recent years, this rich tradition is experiencing arenaissance as more and more people are discoveringits profound devotional value. "Sounds of theEternal, a lovely new volume on Celtic prayer, willbe welcomed by Jewish and Christian readerslooking for a fresh approach to God.

Lavishly illustrated with inspiring Celtic art, "Sounds of the Eternal is unlike any seven-day devotionalcurrently available. Inspired by the greatCeltic teachings from throughout history, the dailyreadings each include an opening prayer, a scripturereading and meditation, and a closing prayer. Thereading for each day carries a special theme silence for Sunday, mystery for Monday, wisdom forTuesday, and so on throughout the week. In thisway each day brings a new perspective on God andthe life of faith.

These prayers present a radical affirmation ofthe goodness of creation and of the human soul. Intrue Celtic fashion, however, these prayers also recognizethat the real beauty of nature and humanitylies in the sounds of the eternal that can be heardechoing through them. Joy in the material world isultimately a celebration of the exceeding love andgrace of the Creator who made it.

Beautifully rendered and wholly relevant to lifetoday, "Sounds of the Eternal is a devotional volumeto treasure for a lifetime.
