Reviews - What do customers think about The Voice of the Irish: The Story of Christian Ireland?

Irish Voices  Jul 19, 2005
This a great introduction to a fascinating but complex subject: the full sweep of Irish history from pre-historic to modern times. Not only that but it is also extremely entertaining and well-written. I was up till five in the morning last night simply unable to put the book down. Disregarding pmango's ludicrous assertions of pro-Scots-Irish bias let me tell you about the book.
Dr. Staunton takes as his main subject the three main strands of Irish Christianity: Catholic, Presbyterian and Anglican; and shows how important they have all been in shaping Irish politics, thought and character. He separates myth from fact and discusses the relevance of both. He shows how in recent times the Christian traditions' influence in dictating morality is on the wane and points to new opportunities for a gentler Christianity, more in tune with Christ's teaching, leading by example "in helping the homeless, drug users, refugees and asylum-seekers... at a time when champions of social justice are more needed than ever." Finally Dr. Staunton's book promotes a liberal vision of tolerance, mutual respect and hope that ultimately can be the only way forward towards the peace and prosperity that all the Irish peoples whatever their creed have a right to share in. If you are remotely interested in Irish history and culture, you should buy this book, read it and then lend it to your friends.

Whitewash  Jun 17, 2004
Reader beware: a whitewash of Irish (and English) martyrdom under the Tudor dynasty, with a decidedly pro-Scots- Irish bent throughout. While occasionally informative, far better reads include:
1. "The Irish Race in the Past and the Present," by the Rev. Aug. J. Thébaud;
2. "Church and state in Tudor Ireland; a history of penal laws against Irish Catholics, 1534-1603," by Robert Dudley Edwards; 3. "Oliver Plunkett in His Own Words" by Desmond Forristal.
