For many Christians, the world equates with "worldliness" and it is to be avoided for fear of damage to their spiritual health. Celtic Christianity differs from this in that it sees in all creation the reflection of God's goodness and beauty which sin might mar, but can never destroy. This book explores the Celtic view of creation and each chapter focuses on an aspect of God revealed in creation to transform our view of created matter. J Philip Newell is a leading author in the field of Celtic spirituality including Celtic Benediction, Sounds of the Eternal, Listening for the Heartbeat of God and other popular titles. Previously Warden of Iona Abbey, and Warden of Spirituality in the Diocese of Portsmouth, he is presently based in Edinburgh and is engaged full time in writing and speaking.
