Amid all the controversy, criticism, and celebration of Terrence Malick's award-winning film "The Tree of Life, " what do we really understand of it? T"he Way of Nature and the Way of Grace" thoughtfully engages the philosophical riches of life, culture, time, and the sacred through Malick's film. This innovative collection traverses the relationships among ontological, moral, scientific, and spiritual perspectives on the world, demonstrating how phenomenological work can be done in and through the cinematic medium, and attempting to bridge the gap between narrow "theoretical" works on film and their broader cultural and philosophical significance. Exploring Malick's film as a philosophical engagement, this readable and insightful collection presents an excellent resource for film specialists, philosophers of film, and film lovers alike.

“Perhaps you hunger to finally end the struggle of living from a consciousness of fear and separation. Perhaps you yearn for a saner, wiser, more spiritually elegant way to move through our world. Perhaps you are weary of the dizzying pace of a culture that drives us ever further from our true nature. There is another way: a way of Grace. This book is a hand of friendship to help you come to abide in the living presence that you are and always were.”—Miranda Macpherson, The Way of Grace Many of us struggle to truly live what we believe spiritually. What if closing that gap wasn’t about trying harder, but something quite the opposite? The Way of Grace is a guide to spiritual surrender and nondual realization based on the practice of ego relaxation—a holistic, feminine approach to welcoming all of your experience and responding with compassion and wisdom in a world in need of your unique gifts. “Grace has four primary dimensions, or ways that it comes alive,” explains Macpherson. “Ego relaxation gives us access to these dimensions, so we can stop trying to beat ourselves into spiritual shape and yield instead to an unshakable presence within.” In The Way of Grace, she shares reflections, inquiries, and meditation practices for each phase of your journey: • Relaxing into the Ground of Grace—move beyond identification with your personality and return to the felt sense of your connection to Grace as your natural and ever-present foundation • Receiving the Blessings of Grace—move beyond “the spiritual poverty of lack” and rediscover the gift of life in every moment through the portals of trust, humility, patience, and joy • The Transforming Power of Grace—move beyond that which limits your full freedom through forgiveness, compassion, unwinding ego identity, and abiding in your boundless nature • Living the Embodiment of Grace—continue to surrender anything that binds you into self-centered patterns and behaviors and become a “Grace-delivery device,” the presence of love here on Earth “Grace will always deepen, season, and bring out the very best in you,” writes Macpherson. “You are its embodiment, always and forever.” The Way of Grace will be your steady companion to “live as the fountain we were made to be, letting the living waters flow to quench our parched and tired Earth.” Foreword by Russ Hudson.

2014 Readers' Choice Awards Honorable Mention Distinguished Honorable Mention, from Byron Borger, Hearts and Minds Bookstore "No matter how old you are or how many degrees you have or don't have—when grace takes you to school, you start in kindergarten." This was the experience of Reverend Glandion Carney when he was given the life-altering news that he has Parkinson's disease. He was plunged into denial and despair. This was not supposed to be his journey. How could he face it? With poignant vulnerability, The Way of Grace describes one man's journey into a new land of God's amazing grace. Both his honesty and his resilience will inspire and inform your own times of difficulty. In each chapter we are introduced to a spiritual practice that can carry us through difficult days: acceptance, relinquishment, community, simplicity and more. And a guide at the end of each chapter carries us into a brief and refreshing experience with each of the practices. God's unmerited grace saves us, strengthens us and sanctifies us. We too can experience lives full of grace and truth, courageously searching out God's wonders every day.

Before living waters can flow, we must admit our thirst. One morning, in a hermitage nestled in California's lovely Big Sur country, Paula Huston read a Scripture verse that she had read hundreds of times before: "Let anyone who thirsts come to me and drink." This time, however, the verse penetrated her heart as never before. Much had happened to her in the preceding years: a return to Christianity, a conversion to Catholicism, a choice for a radically simplified life, an increasing hunger for prayer and the Eucharist. Now, Huston understood that all these things were just the beginning. God was calling her to a deeper experience of holiness, an experience that would require arduous work—and the simplest surrender. By Way of Grace is Huston's beautifully written and compelling account of what she learned during her journey into a deeper faith. She gained a keen sense of the profound challenge that orthodox Christianity presents to the secular mind-set she had uncritically absorbed. Her journey also took her deep into a study of the lives and writings of the great saints of the Catholic mystical tradition, where she was spiritually strengthened by the Christian virtues of prudence, temperance, fortitude, justice, humility, faith, hope, and love. Most important, she discovered that Jesus' call to "come to me and drink" is an invitation that will fully satisfy a yearning heart. This book reveals the essential simplicity of holiness and how we can—by way of grace—know, love, and serve God. Faith through Grace I felt sad about the years I'd spent trying to cobble together a belief that I could "live with." . . . I'd been predisposed to unbelief, and as with all types of unexamined cultural mind-sets, I was blind to this fact until I began to compare my way of thinking with the thinking of orthodox Christianity. Only then did I discover the truth: religious faith is not comforting, as atheists so often accuse, but hard. . . . In order to keep it, we must nourish it and protect it; otherwise, it will be blown away by the changing winds of fashion. More, we must never forget that this virtue . . . comes through grace. . . . The beauty of faith is its deep root in love—the very love I'd been so fervently seeking when I set out on my six-year spiritual search, and the love I'd met in person at the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem. In that moment, I'd been brought face-to-face with the witness himself, whose testimony undergirds twenty centuries of Christian belief. And I'd found him to be just as described: slow to anger and abounding in love. —From By Way of Grace Saints and virtues in this book: • St. Basil on prudence, the art of seeing clearly • St. Gregory on temperance, the art of holding a balance • St. Bernard of Clairvaux on fortitude, the art of courageous continuing • St. Thomas Aquinas on justice, the art of forgiving • St. Teresa of Ávila on humility, the art of honest self-appraisal • St. Francis de Sales on faith, the art of believing in things unseen • St. Thérèse of Lisieux on hope, the art of patient waiting • St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross (Edith Stein) on charity, the art of loving the enemy

This book was written out of a desire to share with others who have loved ones with Alzheimer’s disease what I have experienced as Grace’s caregiver and friend. I wanted to capture the emotions, the expected and unexpected issues, the painful times as well as the humorous and loving moments that Grace and I have shared as a result of this disease. This is not meant to be a handbook for dealing with Alzheimer’s disease, but I hope that by sharing my feelings and experiences, readers may recognize that they are not alone on this particular journey.
