Overview

A daily prayer book that invites participation by all ages, Celtic Treasure will enable families to draw regularly from the great riches of Scripture and Celtic Christianity. It can also serve as a refreshing resource for individual or small-group prayer. In language that is striking for its simplicity and beauty, Philip Newell provides a retelling of a Scripture passage and original prayers inspired by the Celtic tradition for each day of the week. Over the course of seven weeks, these daily readings cover the whole arc of Scripture from the stories of creation and Israel through the life of Jesus and the New Testament letters. Exquisitely illustrated throughout with images from the ancient Book of Kells and with children's vibrant interpretations of Celtic art, Newell's Celtic Treasure will lead families, small groups, and individuals from the noise and busyness of everyday life into the mystery and wonder of the God who has created us and loves us.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Newell, former warden of the famed Iona Abbey in Scotland, is now "writer-theologian" for the Cathedral of the Isles in Cumbrae, Scotland, as well as author of Celtic Benediction and Sounds of the Eternal. This striking little anthology mixes the author's own blessings with passages from the Bible under headings such as "Stories of Creation" and "Sayings of Wisdom." The book's illustrations are an essential part of its charm: they mix excerpted vignettes from the ninth-century Book of Kells with contemporary children's art-a curious but congenial blending in a book filled with wonder and gratitude for God.
