Originally published in 1997, this is a lively and readable account of the life of Colum Cille.
Considered one of the three patron saints of Ireland, little is known about Colum Cille, although stories about him range from his founding a monastery on the island of Iona to starting a war by copying another man’s book.
Desmond Forristal details the main events of the saint’s career and also includes the best-known tales and legends. He paints a picture of a man to be reckoned with – fiery, idealistic, learned, a respector of nature and lover of humankind, a fearless preacher and missionary. Above all, he shows us a man who lived his life in the presence of God.
