A Love of the Sea

Ed Newell talks about his love for the sea and his book The Sacramental Sea: A Spiritual Voyage through Christian History.


Endorsements for The Sacramental Sea:


‘Full of scholarship, phenomenal in its scale and reach, and constantly alive to the sensuous and visceral qualities of the sea, both real and symbolic, The Sacramental Sea is an astonishing and fascinating read.’ Adam Nicolson, winner of the 2018 Wainwright Prize for nature and travel writing


‘Expansive in scope, immaculate in its delivery, The Sacramental Sea ranges through space, time and human beliefs to deliver a stirring call to protect our blue planet.’ Roz Savage MBE, world record-holding ocean rower, environmental advocate and writer


‘The sea is a pervasive presence in the imagery of Christianity, from the Bible to early modern hymns. In this very original and engaging book, Edmund Newell traces its various meanings and the different registers of feeling and vision that it evokes. A fresh, thought-provoking survey of an oceanically wide subject.’ Rowan Williams, Master of Magdalene College, Cambridge, and former Archbishop of Canterbury
