Tell others about Jesus like the ancient Celtic Monks did:

We are all called by God to share our faith (witness) with those who are not Christians.  Some Bible verses that you will find helpful for doing this, and that you may want to commit to memory are found on other pages on our  web site (see: Memory Verses; 2nd Set: Salvation!, Plan of Salvation, and Statement of Faith). _________________

InterVarsity Histories

"I was like a stone lying in the deepest mire; and then 'He who is mighty' came, and, in His mercy, raised me up.  He most truly raised me on high and set me on top of the rampart."

-St. Patrick

J.R.R. Tolkien observed that the word Celtic "is a magic bag, into which anything may be put, and out of which almost anything may come...Anything is possible in the fabulous Celtic twilight, which is not so much a twilight of the gods as of the reason."

In this enjoyable and lucid book, Ted Olsen digs beneath the layers of romanticization to introduce the reader to the world of the Celts.  

Focusing on their interaction with the Christian faith, he tells the stories of the principle characters from Ireland and beyond, such as St. Patrick and St. Columbanus, illuminating their missionary fervor and their monastic ideals.  

He brings a distant period of history to vivid life, and he offers readers an engaging portrait of men and women whose ability to intrigue and fascinate is as strong today as it ever was.
