Excellent! In many ways.

This was an amazing radio drama. Of course they use some poetic license, it certainly is true to the outline and the spirit of St. Patrick’s narrative. The authors depiction of the druids is, of course exaggerated and biased, but that’s to be expected in a story about a saint. Similarly, there are a lot of prayers and God talk about Christ, but I did not feel this should be expected. I did not feel the production was evangelical, prosthelatizing, or doctrine heavy. It reflects the deep humble, Christ centered, spirituality of the ancient Irish Christians. Finally, this drama has some of the best pagan and demon confrontations I have ever heard/read.

Awesome

I loved it. Just as good as Brother Francis. I didn't know St Patrick struggled this much.

Good performance

If this was written as a drama then it was done excellent. If this is based on a factual account, then I'm not sure that it is accurate. I bought this in hopes of hearing factual information of Saint Patrick

Amazing storytelling!

I absolutely loved this amazing production of high quality. I learned so much about Saint Patrick that I did not know. It made him immensely relatable, and all the more inspiring, because we can follow in his footsteps.
