The Edge of Glory - Prayers in the Celtic Tradition

By David Adam
Available in 24 hours
In the Celtic way of prayer the divine glory was intertwined with the ordinariness of everyday events like the patterns on carvings and illuminated gospels. The modern prayers in this book beautifully recapture that tradition. They were composed in a small parish in the north of England to help individuals and groups rediscover the use of life's simple rhythms in their worship of the Eternal Presence. Here are prayers for individual devotions and for corporate worship, as well as for quiet days and retreats.

Press Reviews

This collection is perfect – not just for individual prayer, but also for corporate worship, study groups and retreats.

All of the prayers encapsulate the traditions of contemporary Celtic spirituality which bring together the ordinary experiences of daily living and the glory of the Sacred Presence. They raise our awareness of the presence of God which surrounds us in each moment of life and so enable us to perceive the sacredness of it all.

- Grace Clunie

This book is a rich seam of prayers and benedictions for all seasons and all times for all those interested in Celtic spirituality.
Simply illustrated with black and white Celtic designs on many of its pages, it will also offer inspiration to those seeking assistance with the preparation of worship.
The effectiveness and moving simplicity of this book is as striking today as it was to readers new to Adam’s work in the 1980s.
