This devotional resource is tailor-made for small groups in churches interested in a Christian overview of the sacredness of the body.
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Christians have been accused of maintaining a strict, sometimes detrimental, split between body and soul. Here, Edinburgh's Newell tries to bring body and soul together, urging readers to "regard our bodies as sacred." He draws on the Bible, Kabbalistic texts and Celtic spirituality, structuring the book around parts of the body and their various spiritual meanings. Newell insists that the head is "associated with mystery," the arms with strength, the genitals with creativity, and so on, but he never tells us what it means to integrate those insights into daily life. He quotes so frequently from other spiritual writers Meister Eckhart, Bernard of Clairvaux, Abraham Joshua Heschel, Gerard Manley Hopkins that one wonders if Newell really has anything original to say; at places, this reads more like Newell's personal commonplace book. Newell is to be commended for drawing extensively on Jewish sources, which Christian writers usually overlook. And readers who haven't yet caught the Celtic spirituality craze will no doubt find enlightening the occasional discussions of Irish greats like the ninth-century teacher Eriugena. Any Christian who has been attracted to the Eastern chakra system will be thankful to find a Gospel-friendly version of the same basic truths: different parts of the body relate to different aspects of our being, and body and soul can and should be fully integrated. Overall, this is a well-meaning but unsatisfying stab at an important topic. (Apr.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Library Journal
Despite its subtitle, the latest from the author of Celtic Benediction and many other books has less to do with reimagining or revalorizing the human body than it does with the symbolic value of certain parts of the body. Newell's book is a true religious meditation with a literary flavor that takes up head, heart, legs, feet, even genitals, and considers their symbolic power in the light of Christian scripture and experience. As Newell says, "God has placed a holiness of desire within us," and his book represents a significant effort toward reuniting us with that desire through the power of metaphor. For most collections.
