#Throwback Thursday: Saint Patrick: The Man & His Mission by John Holmes

posted on

As we reminisce on the over forty years that God has blessed Ambassador International to remain in business, we are highlighting a different #backlistbook each week in a series called #ThrowbackThursday.

Saint Patrick: The Man & His Mission by John Holmes was published by Ambassador International in 2013.


Saint Patrick: The Man and His Mission by John HolmesSaint Patrick: The Man & His Mission will take you on a journey back to the early part of the 5th century.

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.

More important still is the fact that these writings provide such a vivid picture of Patrick himself that the force of his personality and the fervor of his faith still live today.

Here then is a voice from the distant past! Not a faltering voice or a melancholy voice but a voice full of certainty and hope and joy. The voice of a man in touch with God.

” . . . it is very welcome to have a book which concentrates on Patrick’s own writings and is so free from all the non-historical lore that has become attached to his career.”—Dr. Marie T. Flanagan, The Queen’s University of Belfast

“From the volumes of history John Holmes has brought Patrick to life in a pleasant easy-to-read book which captures Patrick’s heartbeat and shows us the man who braved numerous dangers to bring the gospel to pagan Ireland. Here too, we have Patrick’s own writings, including his ‘Confession.’ It deserves wide circulation.”—Rev. Dr. Colin N. Peckham, Principal of Faith Mission Bible College, Edinburgh
