Synopsis

Readings from the Book of Exile by Padraig O'Tuama

One of the most intriguing and engaging voices in contemporary Christianity is that of the Irish poet, Padraig O Tuama and this is his first, long-awaited poetry collection. Hailing from the Ikon community in Belfast and working closely with its founder, the bestselling writer Pete Rollins, Padraig's poetry interweaves parable, poetry, art, activism and philosophy into an original and striking expression of faith. Padraig's poems are accessible, memorable profound and challenging. They emerge powerfully from a context of struggle and conflict and yet are filled with hope.

About the Author

Padraig O Tuama lives in Belfast. He is a popular speaker at Greenbelt, leads an annual retreat on Iona, and tours churches, retreat centres, pubs and literary festivals throughout the UK and in the US and Australia.
