Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0835809854, Paperback)Wrestling with Grace is a how-to manual about loving (and accepting) yourself, others, the world around you, and God -- especially on the Tuesday afternoons of life, when the going gets rough. Stemming from his own frustrating experiences one late weekday afternoon, culminating with a toe slammed into a step, Morris yelled in anger, ""Oh God!"" A moment later, he realized that his rash exclamation could be turned into a prayer. Taking a second breath and a moment of refocusing, Morris offered the situation to God. Offering liberating news to anyone who longs for everyday spiritual practice, this book encourages us to pay attention to our first reactive emotion but also to move beyond it. Morris nudges us toward new ways of looking at our own behavior and state of mind, showing us how to let God's grace in our daily life. Our frustrations and fears actually can be a doorway to grace. Some of the obstacles discussed are fear of God, anger, depression, sexual enticement, busyness, affluence, and evil. Morris invites us to let grace work in our lives by loving enemies, forgiving others, acting with justice, dealing with lust, and embracing peace. Writing with humor, Morris offers challenging but down-to-earth insights into the spiritual journey for those of us who always feel like beginners on the spiritual path.
