David Augustine Baker (1575-1641), Welshman, lawyer, Benedictine monk and priest, was an individualist who lived in a number of boundary situations - geographical, linguistic, cultural, religious - and often crossed frontiers. He encouraged Christians to make their home on the borderlands between this world and the next. In this introduction to Dom Augustine Baker’s life and teaching, we hear his own voice directly through the use of extracts from ‘Holy Wisdom’ and other writings. His teaching that spiritual direction, reading and prayer are of help to us on the journey towards the ‘vision of God’ remains pertinent today.
