Well known for his appearances on TV and radio, as well as for his books Finding Sanctuary and Finding Happiness, Christopher Jamison once again shows his ability to communicate spiritual insights in an accessible way. Finding the Language of Grace: Rediscovering Transcendence focuses on the transcendent experiences of grace that we struggle to talk about in todays very business-like culture. Abbot Christopher shows how the ways we listen and speak, read and write can all be channels of grace. This is illustrated through books as diverse as the medieval legend of the Holy Grail, Silence by Japanese writer Shusaku Endo, the writings of Spanish mystics and the novels of Pulitzer Prize winner Marilynne Robinson. The power and the pain of grace resonate throughout the book, offering a new perspective on healing the loneliness and mistrust experienced by many, as well as on the turbulence and political extremes of todays world. How do we restore trust? How can we listen well? What is the right way to read the signs of the times? And how can we revitalise the language of grace in our day?

Recensioner i media

Christopher Jamison demonstrates brilliantly how poetry and literature, whether St Teresa of Avila or Marilynne Robinson, open for us a language of grace, transforming how we listen and speak, read and write. * Timothy Radcliffe OP * This tender book is not only intellectually sound, but also deeply emotionally literate You are in for a treat. * Baroness Sheila Hollins * Abbot Christophers gentle style and broad knowledge allow Finding the Language of Grace to serve as an approachable, practical companion in discovering how to articulate not only grace itself but the virtues that proceed from a deep understanding of grace in gratitude, deep love and most pertinently, hope. * Benedict Plimmer, Catholic Student Network * This brainy outing offers worthwhile insights. * Publishers Weekly * In this wide-ranging, accessible, and engaging work, [Jamison] explores the language of grace, which he believes to be in danger of dying out [an] inspiring and energising book. * Church Times *
