Format: Paperback
J. Philip Newell is a minister in the Church of Scotland, poet, scholar, and teacher. In this slim but rich volume Newell introduces the reader to Celtic by guiding her or him on a journey through the seven days of creation. The Celtic spiritual tradition looks not only to the Bible for inspiration, but to Creation itself. He begins with an introduction that places the Celtic church and tradition in the context of the wider church, both Catholic and Protestant. Each of the succeeding seven chapters takes its point of departure from each of the seven days of creation, through the themes of light, wildness, fecundity, harmony, creaturiness, image, and stillness. After a discussion of how the Celtic spiritual tradition treats each of these themes, the chapter ends with an exercise of meditation based on centering prayer. The sources for this spiritual gem come from the Bible and the works of Celtic Christians from Pelagius and Eriugena through George MacDonald, with a host of other works thrown in, including materials from the Carmina Gadelica. This wonderful little book is great for study and for prayer.

HASH(0x9c00fc24) out of 5 stars I personally really enjoy this book Dec 13 2014
By VLo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I personally really enjoy this book. It goes through the seven days of creation and gives a new light and different thoughts about them. Being a Christian Celtic, I read it and found some things to be very convicting... I'm only giving it 4 *'s because, I also am analytical when it comes to anything. and there were a couple of things I didn't really see eye to eye with. But granted, everyone's interpretation of a book is their own.
If nothing else, it was a good read and did inspire me in an aspect or two.
