A new, smaller-format edition of Ewan Mathers' beautiful photographs depicting in detail the carvings of the restored cloisters of Iona Abbey, with text reflecting on the meaning of each design and information about the flora and fauna of the Isle of Iona and beyond, which most of the carvings represent.

A new edition of this collection of poems and prayers by the founder of the Iona Community, with images of the island. 'To be in a seat at Iona Abbey, to be moved by the awesome oratory of a MacLeod sermon in full flood, to be led into the nearer presence of God by means of kaleidoscopic, imaginative prayer, was to be privileged and - more importantly - to be changed.' Ron Ferguson, former Leader of the Iona Community
