In this book, Philip Sheldrake examines the peculiar traditions that grew up among the Celtic peoples of the British isles. Their love of place as a sign of God is legendary. Sheldrake also looks at their yearning to wander — or pilgrimage. Many Celtic saints made themselves into displaced persons in order to draw closer to God on the road. Whether they reveled in their attachment to place or set out on a pilgrimage to distant lands, Celtic Christians held in their hearts a belief in the immanence of God. This aspect of their faith is one we must retrieve. The closeness of the other world to our world of everyday experience is the only thing that really matters.
