Divine Beauty: The Invisible Embrace by John ODonohue

In this eagerly awaited follow-up to his international bestsellers Anam Cara and Eternal Echoes, John ODonohue turns his attention to the subject of beauty - the divine beauty that calls the imagination and awakens all that is noble in the human heart.

In these uncertain times of global conflict and crisis, we are riven with anxiety; our trust in the future has lost its innocence, for we know now that anything can happen from one second to the next. In such an unsheltered world, it may sound naive to suggest that this might be the moment to invoke and awaken beauty, yet this is exactly the claim that this book seeks to explore.


DIVINE BEAUTY is a gentle but urgent call to awaken. ODonohue opens our eyes, hearts and minds to the wonder of our own relationship with beauty. Rather than covering this theme, he uncovers it, exposing the infinity and mystery of its breadth. His words return us home to the dignity of silence, the profundity of stillness, the power of thought and perception, and the eternal grace and generosity of beautys presence. In this masterful and revelatory work, ODonohue encourages our greater intimacy with beauty, and celebrates it for what it really is: a homecoming of the human spirit.

As he focuses on the classical, medieval and Celtic traditions, on art, music, literature, nature and language, ODonohue reveals how beautys invisible embrace invites us towards new heights of passion and creativity.

DIVINE BEAUTY is an exquisite treasury of Forms of the Beautiful. Its surface employs narrative, image, anecdote and myth, while into the silence of its subtext are sown seeds of reflection that gradually blossom in the heart.
