The history of the Iona Community including St Columba’s founding of an influential Celtic Christian community on the Hebridean island of Iona in the sixth century; the work of George MacLeod whose inspiration placed Iona firmly on the Christian map once again in the twentieth century; and the current broad span of the Community with its concerns for spirituality, politics, peace and justice.
Ron Ferguson has carried it off against the odds! He has managed to make contemporary church history exciting, funny and inspiring. By bringing this story right up to date the Iona Community have reminded us why they will be a force to be reckoned with tomorrow every bit as much as yesterday.
