'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

Meditations & Reflections
After the crucifixion, Joseph embarks on a quest to find out who Jesus really was, seeking out those who knew him personally. These witnesses, all mentioned in the gospels, tell their stories, each contributing a unique insight into the Nazarene. James Harpur uses both prose and poetry to create a parallel narrative to the gospels, amplifying the events they describe.
