Natalie recommends "An invitation to Celtic wisdom: a little guide to mystery, spirit, and compassion"
As someone who likes Irish history and lore, I found this to be a nice read. It talks about concepts and gives some wisdom that can be used today, through saints and some other interesting Celtic figures. It uses figures from "Celtic Christianity" (as it explains that Christianity in Ireland has some unique traits to it) and pieces from Celtic lore. It does have a section Saint Patrick, since he is one of Ireland's most well known saints, but some other figures brought up in this book include, Brigid, Brendan the Navigator, Columcille, and some other lesser known saints. This book includes a section on some Celtic wisdom, which include a few Gaelic terms, one which revolves around "spiritual" friendships. This is a short read, only consisting of one hundred and eighty-eight pages, but is a good read. It can be found in the Adult Nonfiction section.
