Some recent books

Iona of My Heart transspaser

Iona of My Heart

Daily readings

(Book and e-book)

Neil Paynter

When editor Neil Paynter called for contributions to Iona of My Heart he wrote:

‘I’m looking for those human stories from Iona. You know the ones – we all have them. Stories about different folk coming together – people from different countries and backgrounds. Stories of encounter, challenge, exchange, connection, transformation. Stories about people and the power of the Spirit … Show why Iona and what the Iona Community does there is important to the world. Give it a human face.’

This book of four months of daily readings, which reflect the concerns of the Iona Community, is the result. The book can be used for group or individual reflection and is intended to inspire positive action and change in our lives.

The royalties from Iona of My Heart will go to the Iona Community’s Iona Abbey Capital Appeal.

Neil Paynter was a member of the Iona Community’s resident staff group on Iona. He is an editor with Wild Goose Publications and of the Community’s magazine Coracle.

From Darkness to Eastering transspaser

From Darkness to Eastering

(Book and e-book)

Bonnie B Thurston

Reflective, prayerful poems about how, on a cosmic and a personal level, darkness gives way to light.

‘You are in skilled hands here, so let yourself be carried along, ready to experience delight, or be jarred into discomfort. Above all ponder, weigh, take time. For each poem comes out of the quiet depths of a person who is a fellow pilgrim, illuminating the familiar with her own God-given insight.’

– Esther de Waal
