Overview

Celtic Quest shows how the spiritual worldview of the ancient Celtic church might breathe renewal and healing into the lives of Christians today. Timothy Joyce begins by tracing the traumas that transformed the culture of Celtic Christianity into the more familiar "Irish Catholicism" of the past century. For many this form of Christianity is associated with feelings of anger, shame, and guilt. Many have responded by turning their backs on a tradition that was often intolerant, moralistic, and closed. In contrast the Celtic emphasis on imagination, the appreciation of nature, the importance of story and poetry, and the mystical approach to God and the universe, all offer ingredients for a contemporary, life-giving spirituality. Celtic Quest is for all these restless seekers, showing how the ancient traditions of Celtic Christianity offer the wounded a way of healing.
