Description

Professor Eamon Duffy is by any reckoning a scholar of the first rank and a man of deeply held religious belief, who tackles the issue of being a Christian in the modern world. Walking to Emmaus assembles the best of his addresses and includes an impressive autobiographical introduction. Duffy's topics range from the current interest in monasticism, to a new understanding of St Valentine's day, taking full account of the spiritual and fleshly needs of his audience. Walking to Emmaus will delight Eamon Duffy's admirers and increase their numbers.
