"When I first read James Bruce's volume as a PhD thesis several years ago, I was agreeably struck by the originality of his clear and readable approach to a subject of immense complexity. Now that Dr. Bruce's thesis is published my delight is that others will be similarly able to derive benefit from his penetrating insight."
--Robert Gillies, Rector, St. Andrew's
"Bruce provides a scintillating, elegant, and methodologically exemplary reading of the nature and function of charismata in Adomnan's Life of St Columba, showing they were to be understood as expressions of the biblical Spirit of prophecy, and as the flowering in his day of the coming Kingdom of God. Bruce's study not only throws light on this fascinating charismatic missionary and his earliest biographer, but also illuminates a spirituality that offers an implicit challenge to our day."
--Max Turner, London School of Theology
