A compelling argument to recall grace into our lives in the midst of a graceless culture
^^Miroslav Volf's writing unerringly points away from the pettiness and selfishness so prominent in our culture today and toward the love that Christians are called to exemplify. This compelling collection of articles on that theme is a gem, perfect for all who wish to follow that path of love.
^^"All the essays comprising this book all but one of which have appeared in The Christian Century - urge Christians to reflect in our lives the love that God is. Whether I write about God or the self; about my sons, presidents and their advisors, or popes; whether I discuss churches, activist communities, or other religions; whether I analyze culture, business, or politics; whether I reflect about old enmities or new alliances, about past wrongs or future hopes, about joyful feasts or mournful funerals - everything in this book is about how to make determined steps toward love."^
