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.

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.
PattiABAge: Over 65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Excellent historical summary of early christianityMay 28, 2014PattiABAge: Over 65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I 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.
