Manifestations of Grace (Liturgical Press, 1990)

Explores our experience of grace and the ways past ideas about grace can help or hinder spiritual growth. In a succinct and accessible style, this book talks a walk through key moments in the Christian tradition: the Bible, Augustine, Aquinas, Julian of Norwich, Martin Luther and contemporary fiction. It offers fresh ideas about how to think about grace as the passion of God and the fullness of human life.
