Christ of the Celts
I explore the Celtic image of Christ as the Memory of what we have forgotten. He remembers the dance of the universe and the harmony that is deep within all things. He is the Memory also of who we are.
--from the Prelude
Diagnosing the human soul with a longing for peace in the face of fear and fragmentation nurtured by global political forces and fundamentalisms, Newell offers the ancient traditions of Celtic Christianity as a way forward in healing humankind and the earth.
This graceful, wise, and important book is a superb introduction to the treasures of Celtic Christianity for our time.
--Marcus Borg, author, The Heart of Christianity.
