The Cry of the Deer
First published in 1987, this re-issue will be warmly welcomed by lovers of David Adam’s writings.
The Celtic style illustrations by Peter Dingle and Jenny Pearson help the mind to concentrate on the source of the Hymn of St Patrick, and David Adam’s meditations are not just for those used to meditating, they teach the art of meditating on a short phrase and bringing the most meaning out of it. The introduction telling the story of the early life of St Patrick sets the scene, and the two translations of the hymn are the starting point of the meditations.
Of course you are intended to work through as the book is written, but I have found that dipping in over the years has revealed gems of wisdom that have stayed with me and helped my faith. If you have not met this book before I highly recommend that you spend time with it and pray that you will find it as rewarding as I have done.
