Fire of the NorthBarry Vendy, via The Good Book Stall
First published in 1993
In this enjoyable, easy read, David Adam takes us back to the 7th century, to tell the life story of Saint Cuthbert, monastic leader at Ripon and Melrose, renowned preacher and spiritual guide, reluctant Bishop of Lindisfarne, and lover of desert places and remote islands, such as Farne.In the wake of the crucial Synod of Whitby in 664, when the conflict between Celtic and Roman church practices was resolved in Rome's favour, Cuthbert started growing his hair in the Roman style, on the front of his head. No big issue? It obviously was to Cuthbert. But his action showed both his humility and his devotion to the unity of the church.
This little book will make you appreciate a great saint.
