  • 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. Duffys topics range from the current interest in monasticism, to a new understanding of St Valentines day, taking full account of the spiritual and fleshly needs of his audience. Walking to Emmaus will delight Eamon Duffys admirers and increase their numbers. Praise for Faith of our Fathers: This is the sort of history we need - history that serves an ambassadorial role between past and present, illumining our life with wisdom. Christian Century Duffys is a truly prophetic voice. Music and Liturgy
