Editorial Reviews

Review

"'The creative responsibility of language' . . . is clearly [Leax's] choice." -- Shirley Nelson, The Christian Century, January 5, 1994

"Abounds in plainspoken profundity." -- Paul J. Willis

"Engaging and informative." -- Robert Siegel

"Refreshingly lucid prose, unpolluted with the ego that so often finds its way into the best writers' words." -- Virginia Stem Owens, Christianity Today, July 18, 1994

"Unvarnished prose, easy and graceful and blunt all at once." -- Walter Wangerin, Jr.

From the Author

In the last essay of the first edition of Grace Is Where I Live, "In the Care of the Spirit," I identified three themes that have shaped my life as a writer: incarnation, the place of the human in the physical world, and the meaning of community. In the ten years since, I have ceased to think of them as separate themes and have come to understand them as a single exploration of the presence of God in creation. While I am convinced that this exploration is so fundamental to my life as a Christian that it would have focused my attention had I never written a word, I am also convinced that for me writing has been the best way to discovery and faith.

For this edition of Grace I have added a small number of essays that carry forward this single theme while simultaneously reflecting on the act of writing as a means to discovering grace. I began the first edition of Grace with a poem, "What I Have Found," that looked back and set the tone of summary I intended. I close this revised and expanded edition with another poem, "Vow," to indicate an active looking ahead to more and better work.

Format: Paperback
Leax is, along with Luci Shaw, one of the forerunners of the contemporary Christian writing community, and is a remarkable voice: if you are a person of faith, a seeker, and a writer, you must read this book.
