From Columba at Iona to Evelyn Underhill at Pleshey, British men and women of past generations yearned to know God and follow the way of Jesus. This artistic and wistful volume—which could well serve as a travel guide—takes us on a provocative journey across Britain to learn from such saints.
Deborah and David Douglas bring exceptional gifts and backgrounds to their writing: a passion for English literature, experience in spiritual direction, and environmental work in developing countries. Often traveling individually rather than as a pair, these two Americans made multiple journeys to Christian sites across Britain over a period of years and wrote a chapter about each foray. Matching the depth of their insights are outstanding black-and-white images by award-winning photographer Joan Myers.
