P 157 The Celtic Soul-friend: What Place Today? (2019)


Interest in Celtic Christianity and spirituality has grown in recent years. How might the Celtic tradition of one-to-one soul-friendship contribute to the present-day pursuit of discipleship and spiritual growth?

This illuminating study examines the contemporary understanding of the Celtic soul-friend, and explores how the role can be practised within Christian communities. It argues that the soul-friend figure provides an opportunity to recover the place of confession in local church congregations.
