Product Description

Celtic Benedictions is an illuminated collection of newly written daily prayers that draws on the rich stream of devotion flowing deep in the Celtic tradition. For centuries, prayers chanted at the rising of the sun and its setting, at the birth of a child, or the death of a loved one, spoke of God's glory ever-present in creation, in human desires and in physical energies. These original prayers, for each morning and night of the week, are a new expression of that ancient tradition.

Illustrated throughout with the 'everlasting pattern' of Celtic art taken from the Lindisfarne Gospels, Celtic Benediction is truly a book to open the eyes of our hearts in order that we may see God afresh in all things.

Publisher's Description

This lavishly illustrated daily prayer book draws on the great spiritual insights and wisdom of the Celtic church, offering prayers and Scripture readings for every morning and evening of the week. The prayers are illustrated throughout with colored panels from the Lindisfarne Gospels.

David Crumm and ReadTheSpirit.com

If you're going to choose your first prayerbook by Philip Newell, your best choice is his "Celtic Treasure," which incorporates a broad sweep of scriptural themes and stories into daily rituals of prayer. (Take a look at our "Major Authors" page on Philip in our bookstore for a review of "Treasure.")
But "Celtic Benediction," a guide to morning and night prayer, is such a terrific choice, as well, that you may want to buy both to immerse yourself in this neo-Celtic style of meditation that is sweeping around the world.
This is another reasonably priced, gorgeously illustrated book, which is in keeping with the Iona tradition of arts and letters.
Not only are these prayers deliberately written with poetic grace in the words of our everyday language, but they also reflect Iona's theology that God's Creation and human life fundamentally are good, rather than something fundamentally sinful. So, these prayers affirm aspects of life that are missing in many guides to prayer.

    I recommend for all Christian believers who want to love Him more.

    So short, so brief and meaningful, so beautifully written, so simple. Each morning and evening devotion will fill your heart and soul with a new view of our Savior, our God. This book opened my eyes to new aspects of the Father's love for me. It helped me experience His Presence with joy, peace, and confidence in a new way.

    I'd say it is my favorite book after The Bible. One does not tire of rereading daily and the words of the prayers never become stale or familiar. I am grateful to my Celtic ancestors. And grateful to this author. I am most grateful to the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. His inspiration is evident.
