Want to learn more about St. Patrick himself?

From the volumes of history, John Holmes has brought Patrick to life in the pleasant, easy-to-read Saint Patrick: The Man and His Mission which captures Patrick’s heartbeat and shows us the man who braved numerous dangers to bring the gospel to pagan Ireland. Little information exists regarding life and conditions prior to that time in the land named Hibernia—the island lay on the edge of the known world beyond the fringe of the Roman Empire. It took the mission of the man we call Saint Patrick and the discovery of his writings to see the beginning of any real history of Ireland.

The Wild-Bird Child: A Life of Amy Carmichael by Derick Bingham. For this biography, Amy Carmichaelthe first by anyone from her home County, Derick Bingham carefully researched Amy Carmichael’s original letters now placed by the Dohnavur Fellowship and Miss Margaret Wilkinson in the Northern Ireland Public Records Office. As Bingham tried to uncover the heart and conscience of this extraordinarily self-effacing legend, he is on record as saying that it proved to be one of the greatest spiritual experiences of his life, and in this biography, readers will find spiritual gold. She was brilliant, personable and passionate, and she is arguably the most gifted of all Irish woman writers of Christian literature.

A Shiver of Wonder: A Life of C.S. Lewis by Derick Bingham. C. S. Lewis, a name synonymous with A Shiver of Wonderlegendary kindness, intellectual rigour, a love of nature and perhaps his greatest creation, Aslan and the land of Narnia. In A Shiver of Wonder, learn how his writings still compel countless readers to shiver with wonder at the great imagination and depth of understanding he possessed. Controversial genius that he was, his life is a beacon for all who struggle with doubt and faith in Christ.

The Titanic’s Last Hero: A Startling True Story That Can Change Your Life Forever by Moody Adams. One hundred years ago, an “unsinkable” luxury liner sank on its maiden voyage. More than 1,500 men, women, and children tragically lost their lives after the RMS Titanic struck an iceberg on the night of April 14, 1912. From that dark disaster shines an inspirational love story—the true story of one man’s great love for his Savior and for humankind. This is the story of John Harper, the Titanic’s last hero, who set his only child in a lifeboat before setting his sights on the salvation of the lost souls around him. The Titanic’s Last Hero presents a hero whose courageous story you will never forget.

Warrior PoetsWarrior Poets of the 21st Century by Robin Mark. Warrior Poets of the 21st Century is about worship. It’s about how absolutely important worship is and how, perhaps, it is the highest calling and occupation of the believer. But it’s not about excellence of musicianship in played and sung worship. It’s not about personalities or individuals, or specially gifted folks, or style, or technique. It’s not a ‘how to’ book, or a work book, or a ‘here’s a service schedule that’s bound to work’ type book. It’s about how God calls us all to be His worshippers and how, perhaps, every single one of us can, through a deeper understanding of worship, make an impact and a difference in the society in which we live.
 

Want to read about the United States history intersecting with that of Ireland?

Our Most Priceless Heritage: The Lasting Legacy of the Scots-Irish in America by Billy Kennedy. From their earliest arrival in America 350 years ago the Scots-Irish left a lasting legacy, a heritage that was firmly grounded in freedom and democracy. The pioneering instinct of this proud race from Ulster and Scotland opened up America from the Atlantic coastline to the Pacific shore—“Sea to Shining Sea.” The history of the United States is inter-woven with the outstanding personalities from the Scots-Irish diaspora and the distinctive characteristics of a people who pushed the frontiers to new horizons. The comprehensive study of the Scots-Irish in America in Our Most Priceless Heritage by Northern Ireland author Billy Kennedy has created a much greater awareness of the accomplishments and the durability of the hardy settlers and their families who moved to the ‘New World’ during the 18th century and created a civilization out of a wilderness.

Women of the FrontierWomen of the Frontier by Billy Kennedy. American frontier women of the 18th century were an extraordinary people whose contribution to the creation of the United States is one of the most enduring stories in history. The gallant women of the frontier have never been given the full credit they deserve for settling with their families in an uninhabited wilderness.  Women of the Frontier places on record the notable achievements of these heroines. Northern Ireland author/journalist Billy Kennedy, in the eighth of his Scots-Irish Chronicles, gives recognition to the women whose lot was far from glamorous in the bleak and lonely frontier territories. They faced personal hardships and tragedies in hazardous conditions. While the men toiled arduously from dawn to dusk to lay down a stake in the New World, the women were the cornerstones of the home, the church, and the wider community.

Three Men of Destiny: Andrew Jackson, Sam Houston and David Crocket by Billy Kennedy. Andrew Jackson, Sam Houston and David Crockett were three men of destiny in 19th century American history who had much in common in family and ancestral ties, in character, mannerisms and political and social outlook as they shaped the fabric of a nation that was to gradually emerge as the greatest, most influential in the world. They were a gallant and fearless trio of men, hewn from the same genealogical and cultural stick that was rooted back across the Atlantic Ocean in lowland Scotland and in north-east Ireland (the province of Ulster) a century and more before they were born as first American citizens in what was then the outer ring of the Western frontier. How truly remarkable it was that from this momentous trail-blazing emigration journey, that within a very short period of time, the Jackson, Houston and Crockett names were being carved with enormous pride across this great expanse of land that stretches from sea to shining sea in the United States of America.

Marcus PaulFrom Ireland to the Wild-West by Marcus Paul. Born in 1846 in Ireland at the start of the “Great Hunger,” James Kinnier Wilson emigrated to Philadelphia to start a new life at seventeen years old. After his life took a dramatic turn, he found himself attending Princeton and then a college in Scotland, where he met Agnes Hately, the talented daughter of a famous figure in the Scottish “Disruption”—the emergence of the Free Church of Scotland. Agnes and James, now newlyweds, crossed the dangerous Atlantic and settled in rural New Jersey. While there, Agnes wrote intimate letters home about her children, the people around her, the church, and the dangers of endemic disease. In Ireland to the Wild West, Marcus Paul uses these letters penned by Agnes to take readers on a journey through Agnes and James’ engagement, marriage, dangerous travels, and their arrival and life in America. Through her letters, a treasure trove for historians, readers will gain a unique insight to that time period and will find an engrossing and inspiring story of romance, faith, tragedy, and hope.

 

Do you enjoy Irish-themed fiction?

The Last Letter by Bethan MarshallThe Last Letter by Bethan Marshall. Niamh is a devout Catholic living with her parents in Ireland in 1908. She has always been obedient to her parents and has never doubted their faith. But when she joins a suffragist movement, Niamh suddenly finds herself being introduced to women from different beliefs who all believe that women deserve to be treated as well as men. As Niamh begins to imagine a world where women and men are equal, she meets Fred, the brother of one of her sister suffragists. Fred is a devout Protestant, the son of a man who has only ever regarded his sons with affection and ignored his daughters. Upset by the unfairness of how his sisters have been treated all their lives, Fred is an adamant supporter of the suffragist meetings that are held at his sister’s home. Although they are from completely different worlds, Fred and Niamh immediately fall in love and ask for permission from their families to be married. But when neither family is willing to support their unity, Fred sets out on an adventure to create a new life for them in America, hoping to save enough money for Niamh to come and join him. As Niamh waits for that day to arrive, she is able to hold on to hope as the lovers write letters to one another and send them through Fred’s sister. But as much as she cherishes the letters from her beloved, Niamh can hardly wait for that last letter that will bid her to come and start her down an unknown path of adventure. Based on a true story, The Last Letter is a tale of overcoming prejudice and finding love against all odds.

The Shamrock and Peach: A Culinary Journey from the North of Ireland to the American South by Judith McLoughlin. The Shamrock and Peach is a unique book in many ways. It is a cookbook that explores the best of Ulster-Scots cuisine but is also the tale of an immigrant’s journey, following in the footsteps of those Scots-Irish settlers who forged the trails of Appalachia years ago. It is a story of the many cultural overlaps that exist between the North of Ireland and the Deep South, celebrating those cultural expressions through the language of really good food. The first half of the book is set in the green fields of Ireland from where we cross the ocean to the American South to discover some wonderful food experiences that have their roots in the Emerald Isle. Filled with beautiful photographs of both regions, this cookbook will be a fun and interesting resource to browse through and use in your kitchen for years to come.

Just Who Was St. Patrick?

posted on

It’s a question we all ask ourselves on the one day that we’re all Irish. Except for those pesky orange-wearers.

We all wear green and say funny things like “top ‘o the mornin’ to ya!” But have you ever wondered what’s at the root of St. Patrick’s Day? Journey back to the early part of the 5th century, a time we knew little about until the discovery of Saint Patrick’s writings, through the pages of Saint Patrick: The Man & His Mission.

SaintPatrick

Those writings provide a vivid picture of this faithful man, offering a voice from the distant past, spreading hope and joy. You’ll be amazed to discover the real St. Patrick. And here’s a hint: it has nothing to do with corned beef, cabbage or even leprechauns! Pick up Saint Patrick: The Man & His Mission to learn more about the man and missionary so oft-celebrated yet misunderstood in the modern world.

 

Fancy a pot o’ gold? The kindle price is even better!

Ireland to the Wild West: A True Story of Romance, Faith, Tragedy, and Hope

Marcus PaulBorn in 1846 in Ireland at the start of the “Great Hunger,” James Kinnier Wilson emigrated to Philadelphia to start a new life at seventeen years old.

After his life took a dramatic turn, he found himself attending Princeton and then a college in Scotland, where he met Agnes Hately, the talented daughter of a famous figure in the Scottish “Disruption”-the emergence of the Free Church of Scotland.

Agnes and James, now newlyweds, crossed the dangerous Atlantic and settled in rural New Jersey. While there, Agnes wrote intimate letters home about her children, the people around her, the church, and the dangers of endemic disease.

Called in 1878 to the Wild West to found churches and to farm, Agnes again revealed in detail the conditions of her life on the frontier and her impressions of American women, cowboys, servant girls, church-goers, and provides some never before seen detail to what is called the “Last Indian Raid in Kansas.”

In Ireland to the Wild West, Marcus Paul uses these letters penned by Agnes to take readers on a journey through Agnes and James’ engagement, marriage, dangerous travels, and their arrival and life in America.

Through her letters, a treasure trove for historians, readers will gain a unique insight to that time period and will find an engrossing and inspiring story of romance, faith, tragedy, and hope.

A Shiver of Wonder: A Life of C. S. Lewis

He was an intellectual prig who was transformed into a man who had a mind and heart awake to holiness. He had no posterity, but few men in history have been so deeply loved by children.  He was but a mirror A Shiver of Wonderreflecting another Face.

He was an Oxford Don and a Cambridge Professor. He was an expert in Medieval and Renaissance English who gripped the imagination of millions through his wartime broadcasts of Christian truth for the BBC—broadcasts that later became his famous book, Mere Christianity.

He was C. S. Lewis, a name synonymous with legendary kindness, intellectual rigour, a love of nature and perhaps his greatest creation, Aslan and the land of Narnia. His writings still compel countless readers to shiver with wonder at the great imagination and depth of understanding he possessed. Controversial genius that he was, his life is a beacon for all who struggle with doubt and faith in Christ.

The Titanic’s Last Hero: A Startling True Story That Can Change Your Life Forever

The Inspiring Love Story That Will Change Your Life

Over one hundred years ago, an “unsinkable” luxury liner sank on its maiden voyage. More than 1,500 men, women, and children tragically lost their lives after the RMS Titanic struck an iceberg on the night of April 14, 1912.

Shockingly, many who perished had refused to board the lifeboats at first, believing the ship as truly indestructible and would not sink!

From that dark disaster shines an inspirational love story—the true story of one man’s great love for his Savior and for humankind. This is the story of John Harper, the Titanic’s last hero, who set his only child in a lifeboat before setting his sights on the salvation of the lost souls around him.

Re-live John Harper’s last hours as the ship took on water and passengers swarmed the decks. “Let the women, children, and the unsaved into the lifeboats!” was Harper’s cry.

Discover, through the testimonies of those who knew him, what inspired this man to go down with the ship and flounder in icy waters under a starry sky as he searched for doomed souls who needed his message of love and salvation.

The Titanic’s Last Hero presents a hero whose courageous story you will never forget.

Day 1

All Matty the manger mouse wants to do is snuggle into the warmth of his mother and fall asleep—but the Creator of the world has another plan for him…

What really happened the night Jesus was born?
Matty’s mother tells him he will take part in the most important thing ever to happen in history. Why him, a meek and lowly stable mouse? All Matty the manger mouse wants to do is snuggle into the warmth of his mother and fall asleep but the Creator of the world has another plan for him. Will the little stable mouse surrender to his own needs or bow to the will of the Savior?
Children and adults will be touched by Matty’s brave little heart. As the story of that first Christmas unfolds, come join Matty and all the other stable dwellers portrayed in lush and charming pastel illustrations.

Day 2

A delightful retelling of the Christmas Story, told through the eyes of Druplet, a common donkey.

Drupelet, a young donkey named after a juice bump on a raspberry, lived on a raspberry farm and his wish was to one day be as special as the prize horses in a nearby pasture. As Christmas rolled around, Drupelet went on an adventure that saw him standing next to a baby in a manger and a young girl in funny clothes. On returning to the farm Drupelet inquired what this was all about, this is when the wise barn cat shared the story of Christmas. Drupelet now felt special.

Learn more about Donna Thornton and The Christmas Donkey HERE.

 

Day 3

Preparing for the journey to Bethlehem in order to register for the census, Joseph groomed the gentle donkey colt chosen to accompany him and his bride…This is his little tale.

Preparing for the journey to Bethlehem in order to register for the census, Joseph groomed the gentle donkey colt chosen to accompany him and his bride, who was with child. Along the way, the charming little beast of burden committed to memory all he saw and heard along the way in hopes that his intuitive insights and attention to detail would be passed down for generations to come. Little did he realize he would be a witness to the birth of the Christ Child, never dreaming he would be pressed into the service of a King. Thus, the little chronicler fills in many gaps in the love story of Joseph and Mary, and the joyous birth of Jesus. This is his little tale.

Learn more about R. Mitchell Scott and A Donkey’s Little Tale HERE.

 

Day 4

The orange ball of the sun had risen, and two tan boys ran barefoot along the sand. They were born of the same mother, but were as different as the shores of the immense Galilee…

Learn more about Belinda Ford Kramer and Jesus and the Children of Galilee HERE.

 

Day 5

Johanna’s Israelite people are slaves in Egypt. She dreams of two things: freedom from slavery and having a best friend…

Day 6

After befriending the Holy Family, three shepherd boys vow to follow them to Egypt, setting the trio on a high adventure of their own.

Learn more about S.A. Jewell and Visit from a Shepherd Boy HERE.

 

Day 7

Most adoptive and foster children struggle at some point in their life with knowing who they are and where they belong. They want to ask questions, and parents need to be prepared with an answer that helps their child feel loved and secure…

Learn more about Katie Cruice Smith and Why Did You Choose Me?  HERE.

 

Day 8

Firefighters are busy! They have many tasks to do each day including washing, waxing, shining the truck, cleaning the gear, getting rid of the muck…

Learn more about Maria Bostian and Firefighters’ Busy Day HERE.
