The Rebirthing of God
Christianity's Struggle for New BeginningsBook - 2014
In the midst of dramatic changes in Western Christianity, internationally respected spiritual leader, peacemaker and scholar John Philip Newell offers the hope of a fresh stirring of the Spirit among us. He invites us to be part of a new holy birth of sacred living. Speaking directly to the heart of Christians--those within the well-defined bounds of Christian practice and those on the disenchanted edges--as well as to the faithful and seekers of other traditions, he explores eight major features of a new birthing of Christianity: Coming back into relationship with the Earth as sacred; Reconnecting with compassion as the ground of true relationship; Celebrating the Light that is at the heart of all life; Reverencing the wisdom of other religious traditions; Rediscovering spiritual practice as the basis for transformation; Living the way of nonviolence among nations; Looking to the unconscious as the wellspring of new vision; Following love as the seed-force of new birth in our lives and world.
