Full Product Description
"I lived in a land of open fields, moorland, and beaches: a land of castles, of history, of heroes, saints and story . . . a radiant world . . . full of the mystery of existence"
The Wonders of the beyond tells the story of how at a young age of 15 David left school to work in the local coal mine as that was the norm, which made him increasingly aware of the need to have a purpose in life, leading on to him becoming a minister in the North Yorkshire Moores and publishing many books.
The aim of The Wonders of the Beyond is to help us understand the wonderful world that we live in today and to open are eyes, ears and hearts to what is all around us and to become truly aware of the world and glory of God's creations.

The Wonder of the BeyondGeorge Taylor, via The Good Book Stall
David Adam, whose collections of prayer and meditations in the Christian Celtic tradition are highly regarded and popular, has written what he claims to be “not an autobiography”. It does, however, detail his life and thoughts starting with the romantic encounter between his father, an itinerant labourer and his mother, a traveller and their marriage within a week, to his own life experiences as a miner and then priest and his ability to see wonder in everything.
At 15, David Adam started at his local Durham coal mine where he worked in a series of jobs both under and over ground. However, the wonder of the world around him caused him to stun his father when he told him he wanted to be a vicar! Following his clerical training at Kelham, known as the Church of England’s Commando Course, then with two curacies and twenty three years as vicar at Denby in North Yorkshire, he finally found his ideal ministry as the vicar of Holy Island
Beautifully and engagingly written, each chapter ends with a Thought, an Exercise and a Prayer, with relevant poems and readings throughout the book
