Overview

A more holistic and natural way of thinking about faith

In his previous book, Christ of the Celts, J. Philip Newell emphasized the Celtic view of the oneness of creation and humanity as expressed through Christ. In that poetic treatment of the wisdom of Celtic spirituality, Newell pointed the way to a more peaceful, harmonious, integrated Christianity. A New Harmony takes the next step forward in emphasizing the need to overcome divisions and find common ground and to reclaim the best of ancient Christian spirituality and a more holistic, natural way of thinking about faith.

  • Presents the case for the need for "a new harmony" that is both mystical and relational

The author J. Philip Newell is a well-known expert on Celtic Christianity and the author of the acclaimed Listening for the Heartbeat of God.

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.
