Description: The autobiography of one of the most popular saints in history -- Saint Patrick, now available in a highly accessible translation.

Beyond being recognized as the patron saint of Ireland (and perhaps for having chased some nonexistent snakes off the Emerald Isle), little else is popularly known about Saint Patrick. And yet, Patrick left behind a unique document, his Confession, which tells us much both about his life and his beliefs. This autobiography, originally written in the fifth century C.E., short by modern standards, is nonetheless a work that fascinates with its glimpse into the life of an intriguing man, and inspires with its testament of faith.

Also included in this volume is the only other document known to have been written by Patrick -- a letter he wrote to the soldiers of Coroticus -- also Christians -- who had raided parts of Ireland and taken away prisoners who were then sold into slavery. This letter is a wonderful demonstration of Patrick's rhetorical fire. Quite irate, Patrick harangues his fellow Christians, and the results are every bit as autobiographically revealing as the Confession.

John O'Donohue, author of Anam Cara, provides an insightful foreword that re-creates the unique spirituality of Patrick and of the Irish people, and shows how it applies to our lives today.
