Hendrickson Publishers, Hardcover, 2005; First Edition, Book Condition: Very Good. Common Grace takes readers on a rich and stimulating journey through some of the world's "good" literature--where the struggles and joys of life and faith are illustrated in timeless words and images. In this wide-ranging collection, Jane Austen, Maya Angelou, Dante, Charles Dickens, Graham Greene, John Grisham, Blaise Pascal, Beatrix Potter, J.R.R. Tolkien, Leo Tolstoy, and many others exhibit the power of great writing to open minds and move hearts. Arranged into five topical sections--The World We Live In, Being Human, Knowing God, Good and Evil, and The Cycle of Life--Mary Batchelor's anthology artfully reflects the desires, sufferings, and searches of human existence. From imaginative excerpts both powerful and profound to delightful selections of humor and satire, it offers a literary feast for browsing, discovery, and growth.
