What People are Saying About This

Edward Donnelly ~ Principal

To read this account is to fill us with thankfulness for the Lord's work in history and with hopefulness for... another era of lost-ness.

Paul Hartog ~ Adjunct Faculty

Michael Haykin paints a compelling portrait of this bibliocentric bishop and earnest evangelist. The dedicated missionary and thoughtful theologian that emerges belongs to the Gospel-loving global church and not just the Emerald Isle.

Michael Ovey ~ Principal

A fine balance between a biography of an extraordinary servant of Jesus Christ and an explanation of the beliefs that sustained Patrick.

D. H. Williams ~ Professor of Patristics and Historical Theology

Judicious... knowledgeable...insightful... Readers will be impressed.
