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. This use of symbols from the natural world reflects the close links of the early Celtic Christians with the land around them.
Reflective, powerful poems about how, on a cosmic and a personal level, darkness gives way to light, reminding us that 'light shines in the darkness', that darkness is required to perceive light - and that Easter means the light has come, life triumphs, and the promised Holy Spirit will empower us for growth: 'eastering'

A book about the original Pearls of Life bracelet. There is a now a new version of the Pearls (available from Verbum Sweden at: https://www.verbum.se/fralsarkransen/fralsarkransen-av-glas-p52634417) where one of the beads is a different colour, but most of this book is still relevant.
Unfortunately a page was omitted and then appears in the wrong place when Welcoming Each Wonder by Tom Gordon was printed for the first time, for which we offer many apologies. To help rectify this, the complete chapter is available as a free download. Just put it in your basket and check out as usual. You will not be charged. The problem was corrected for later print runs, so this corrected chapter should not be necessary if you have only just purchased the book.

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
