Publisher's Summary

Practically everyone in the western world has heard of the man called St. Patrick. But hardly anyone knows anything about him. About the only two things that more people "know" about Patrick is that he was Irish and Roman Catholic. In truth, he was neither. He was British, and he belonged to the autonomous Celtic church. Although Patrick is the most famous person of his age, the real man has been buried in a cloud of myths. Myths such as:

  • He used the shamrock to explain the Trinity
  • He was sent to Ireland by the Pope
  • He was a wonder-worker who staged miraculous duels with the Druids

Let Me Die in Ireland cuts through all of the myths about Patrick and presents the authentic, stirring account of one of the greatest missionaries who ever lived. His life is a compelling testimony to the incredible power of the gospel when preached and lived by a man of integrity. He gave up a comfortable life as an upper-class citizen of Roman Britain to live in poverty, suffering, and constant danger in Ireland. Forsaking all, he brought Christ's love to the hated enemies of his own people to the very nation who had once kidnapped and enslaved him. Although ridiculed and rejected by his own people in Britain, Patrick changed the course of an entire nation.

Interesting but difficult to listen to

Wanted to hear the story, so slog through listening. Interesting facts about Saint Patrick. However, the narrator was challenging to me. Over pronunciation of words and odd timing and pauses, challenged this listener. Guess I'm very sensitive to the flow of the English language.
