One Foot in Eden is a prayerful reflection on the stages of human life seen through a Celtic prism. In seven brief chapters, we are invited to consider the invitation of birth, the innocence of childhood, the commitment of life’s middle years, the wisdom of old age and death as a return to the source of life. In every phase of the human journey, we can affirm the goodness of life and the sense of awe that humans can discover in the act of living. “The purpose of this book,’ writes J. Philip Newell is the “Celtic belief that grace is given by God to liberate the goodness that has been planted at the heart of life. Grace is opposed to what is false in us but not to what is most deeply natural.”
This volume originated as a series of lectures in Portsmouth, England. At the end of the volume there is a short guide for using the book in small groups.
J. Philip Newell is a minister of the Church of Scotland. He has served as warden of the lona Community and is presently director of spirituality for the Anglican diocese of Portsmouth. His other books published by Paulist Press include Celtic Prayers from Iona and Listening to the Heartbeat of God.
