Product Description

Listening for the Heartbeat of God presents a spirituality for today, modeled on the vital characteristics of Celtic spirituality through the centuries. Here is an emphasis on the essential goodness of creation and humanity made in the image of God. This book traces the lines of Celtic spirituality from the British church in the fourth century through to the twentieth century, in the founder of the Iona Community, George Macleod.

J. Philip Newell finds Celtic spiritual roots in the New Testament, in the mysticism of St. John the Evangelist. John was especially remembered as the one who lay against Jesus at the Last Supper and heard the heartbeat of God. Hence became a Celtic image of listening to God in all of life. This fresh angle on Celtic spirituality - linking figures in the Bible and in British Christian history - will be warmly welcomed by all who are concerned to refresh the roots of their faith.

Publisher's Description

An overview of Celtic spirituality and its implications for us today.

David Crumm and ReadTheSpirit.com

Here's the book that most teachers, pastors and pilgrimage leaders will hand you straight away to learn about the voice of J. Philip Newell, who ranks pretty much as the American standard-bearer of the global Iona Community -- and the most popular advocate, in America, for a theology that he describes as Celtic.
We're listing it second here under Philip's name, because many readers may simply want to dive into the prayers and daily meditations themselves. This book contains prayers, but is more of a historical introduction to this movement than a guidebook to personal reflections.
In keeping with this plain-speaking revival of ancient religious forms, Newell's book is just a wee bit over 100 pages and yet it gives us a wonderfully breezy tour through centuries of reflection in this school of spirituality.
If you're even considering a trip to Iona, this is a "must buy" book, partly to understand how the current leaders of the Iona movement understand their history.

    I enjoyed reading his book very much. Now I understand what went wrong with Christianity. The focus was changed from finding God in nature, to being told what to believe by churches, and being controlled by churches. An excellent history written with interest, and not boring at all.
