Patrick, Son of Ireland [Hardcover]
by Stephen R. Lawhead

In the summer of the year AD 405, Irish raiders under the command of King Eochaid attack the western coast of Wales, setting fire to towns and farms, stealing cattle and grain, and carving a fiery swathe through the peaceful countryside. Many of those who survive the attack are rounded up and carried back to Ireland.

Among the survivors is a 16-year-old boy named Succat—the impulsive and willful young scion of a British noble family—who is sold in the slave market to a merciless ruler. When Succat is gravely punished after a foiled attempt to escape, he comes to the attention of Cormac, a novice Druid eager to practice his healing skills. Succat learns to respect the Druid’s lore and love of learning and is given a new name, Patrick, the Celtic word for nobleman.

What follows is the story of Patrick’s “missing years”—years of calamity, defeat, and crushing disappointment that form him into a bard and advisor to the High King of Ireland, and lead to the mission for which his name will be remembered throughout history.

Zondervan (February 2003). Hardcover. 464 pages.
