One Foot in Eden
by Philip Newell
This volume is a reflection on the different stages of life, from the innocence of the new-born child to the passion and wisdom of later years. The author draws on the life and teachings of Jesus, ending each chapter with a meditation exercise.
This book explores the connection between what is deepest in us and the original goodness of creation seen in the Garden. Writing in the Celtic tradition, the author views grace not as opposed to nature, but as releasing God's creativity which was planted in us at birth. Love's wisdom and passion may lie buried under layers of confusion in our lives, but they are waiting to be recovered. The book imagines a pilgrimage through the different stages of life, from the innocence of the newborn, through the awakening of adolescence and the passions of adulthood, to the wisdom which comes from experience.
