Item Description...
Overview
Few issues have caused the church more difficulty through the ages than those surrounding the human body. Throughout much of Christian history, spiritual seekers have considered the body to be, at best, a hindrance to spiritual enlightenment, and, at worst, an enemy to be suppressed. Many of our contemporary negative preoccupations with physical appearance, image, and sexuality derive from this ancient and habitual denial of the notion that we were created in God's image. In Echo of the Soul bestselling author J. Philip Newell finds that the human body, like creation, is actually the dwelling place of God. Using the Old Testament Wisdom literature, which informed Celtic spirituality's positive understanding of what it means to be human, Newell looks at each part of the body as a sacred text that reveals something of the Divine. Looking back to a time before Christians began to distrust their physicality, Newell shows that our most ancient texts challenge modern assumptions about love, beauty, sexuality, learning, wisdom, power, and responsibility, and bridges the body/spirit divide.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A thoughtfully reasoned testimony of Christian faith  Nov 18, 2003
Accessibly written by J. Philip Newell (a minister of the Church of Scotland), Echo Of The Soul: The Sacredness Of The Human Body deftly presents the idea that the human body is not an obstacle to ascending to the divine, but rather the dwelling place of God, and truly created in God's image. Echo Of The Soul is confidently recommended as a powerful and thoughtfully reasoned testimony of Christian faith offering informed and informative insights concerning the importance of both human and divine love as manifested on the physical Earth.
