Veritas is proud to announce the forthcoming publication of Walking on the Pastures of Wonder: John O’Donohue in Conversation with John Quinn, a poignant and inspirational collection of radio conversations and presentations from philosopher, poet and bestselling author John O’Donohue, who passed away in 2008 at the age of just 52.
Based on his radio work with former RTÉ broadcaster John Quinn over a period of five years, John O’Donohue explores themes such as wonder, landscape, the medieval mystic Meister Eckhart, ageing and death.
The material, largely unpublished previously, is interspersed with a selection of John’s ‘Blessings’ from his book Benedictus.
A book of great insight and riches, presented in John’s inimitable lyrical style, Walking in the Pastures of Wonder will do much to feed the ‘unprecedented spiritual hunger’ that John had observed in modern society.
Published with the blessing of the O’Donohue estate, this book also contains a moving foreword from John’s brother, Pat.
It is scheduled for publication on Thursday, 12 March 2015.
