Praise for A New Harmony

"This book represents what is becoming a new and abundant source for theology, although it is the oldest source of all--creation itself! How could we have missed what John Philip Newell now makes so obvious and so exciting?" —RICHARD ROHR, O.F.M., Center for Action and Contemplation

"John Philip Newell possesses three gifts of the Spirit ... He is able to see the divine wholeness in our clearly fractured reality. He is able to articulate that wholeness so that we can see it too. Finally, he is able to connect his vision to action so that we are able to follow him into the new harmony he describes so com-pellingly—and all without a shred of sentimentality." —Barbara Brown Taylor, author, An Altar in the World

"In these pages Celtic consciousness and scholarship once again awaken the heart and mind to ... the everyday beauty and sacredness of things. Simply, but not simplistically, written, the author moves from dreams and everyday encounters to teachings from creation-centered mystics and today's scientific cosmology. ... He provides a radical challenge to the boredom that institutional religion so often elicits. With a book like this, religious history looks less bleak and spirituality much closer to home." —Matthew Fox, author, Original Blessing

"A gift with a catch to it! A New Harmony is another little gem of spiritual wisdom. ... Often autobiographical, always engaging ... these reflections invite us into a hope for the renewal of an ancient harmony."—Wendy Farley, author, Tragic Vision: A Contemporary Theodicy

    A MUST read for spiritual growth and journey!

    Raised as a "cradle Catholic," I have traveled a lonesome path of new incites and growth in what I believe or DON'T believe. I experienced all the judgments of Catholic and male superiors. J. Philip Newell not only opened my eyes and heart, but gave me "permission" to believe what I had always suspected, and to feel loved for who I am and how I want to be.
