"I would like to think that there are things in my own life that might attract the interest of others-even if only to spark in them a recollection of similar escapades and experiences of their own." - Herbert O'Driscoll
Beloved preacher and author, Herbert O'Driscoll, offers his life story in his own words. The first section includes memories from his childhood and student years lived mainly in the south of Ireland.
The second section tells stories from his years of active ministry in Canada, the United States, and other parts of the world church. The last portion recalls experiences from his retirement years and his facilitation of pilgrimages to the Middle East, Ireland, and Great Britain.
"One could say it has been a relatively unadventurous life, but it is one in which I have been given gifts of love and friendship, and opportunities to learn and grow, far beyond my counting or deserving . . . These pages allow me to revisit in memory the times when, and places where, I was given something of lasting, permanent value-an image, an idea, an insight-and the people who gave them to me or in whose company I shared them."
