English spirituality has always been distinct, and the nation has its own unique tradition of Christian monks, hermits, and theologians. "They were human beings like ourselves," Sister Benedicta Ward comments, "and in exploring their journeys we can be refreshed and encouraged in our own." Offering insightful commentary and translations from historic texts, Ward profiles Bede, St. Cuthbert, Anselm of Canterbury, Julian of Norwich, Lancelot Andrewes, and John Bunyan. Even as Ward brings to life these wise, passionately committed figures from the past, she sheds light on some fascinating corners of British history.
