4.0 out of 5 stars A modern book of blessings
John O'Donohue's death earlier this year was a sad, sad loss.
Heard him at Greenbelt in 2007 and he was simply awesome.

If you've not read any of his books, then I would not advise you starting with this one. Start with Anam Cara, which in my view is his masterpiece.

This book of blessings will make much more sense after you've read Anam Cara...

1.0 out of 5 stars Left me cold
I was surprised to be bought this book by a member of my close family. They thought it a book for people who have faith in supernatural explanations and for those who do not. I am the latter and an atheist.

Religious believers may glean more useful "blessings" from the texts and prayers of their chosen faith.

Setting beliefs aside, I find the book...

This review is from: Benedictus: A Book Of Blessings (Hardcover)
I found this book very helpful. I lost my beloved husband of 40 years recently and the grief is hard to bear. Reading the poems by John O'Donoghue are very comforting.
