Inspired reflections by Richard Rohr and others at the Centre for Action and Contemplation, calling people of faith back to their spiritual roots. Grace in Action invites readers to reflect upon their lives and their priorities, and challenges Christians everywhere to be 'active contemplatives.'
Grace in Action is a hope-filled book that looks to the church community as a positive change agent – a place where justice, healing love, and faith are ushered into a world hungry for meaning and direction.
