Review: Saint Patrick by Jonathan Rogers
Saint Patrick by Jonathan Rogers separates the myths from the facts and you will find this book to be a very interesting account of the Saint. Did you know he was not Irish but a Roman Briton?
The author introduces us to the young man who came from a wealthy family very involved in the Church yet whom himself was not much of a Christian. Until he was taken by Irish raiders and became a slave. The story unfolds filled with courage, barbarism, betrayal and yet young Patrick never gives way to despair. After escaping to freedom he experienced a vivid dream which changed his whole life.
He completed his education and took Holy orders then made his way back to Ireland. What follows makes this book excellent reading! You will not want to put it down!
I give it 4 1/2 stars!
I received a copy of this book from the Book Sneeze program to write a review. No other compensation was given.
