Biblical references to the sea are largely negative, yet many people find being near, or on, the sea deeply spiritual, and our art, poetry, hymns and expressions of religious experience draw heavily on imagery of the sea. The Sacramental Sea is a theological exploration of this apparent paradox. Ed Newell explores the history of our complex spiritual relationship with the sea throughout history, scripture, scientific discovery and literature.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"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
"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
"In this very original and engaging book, Edmund Newell traces various meanings and the different registers of feeling and vision that the sea evokes: a fresh, thought-provoking survey of an (appropriately!) oceanically wide subject." -- Rowan Williams
