Item Description...
Overview
On a particularly trying Thursday afternoon, Robert Morris exclaimed in frustration and anger, "O God!" That day Morris realized that his exclamation could be turned into a prayer by taking a second breath, refocusing, and offering the situation to God. This simple situation is the basis for Wrestling with Grace, a book that explores Christian spirituality and discipleship in the routine moments and ordinary emergencies of life. Morris encourages readers to gain personal insight by looking at their first or reactive emotions - anger, sadness, frustration--and he persuades us to move beyond that first reaction to cultivate a prayer of the second breath. By discerning how to overcome obstacles to spiritual growth, Morris helps us open our spirits to deeper joy and love. Morris includes a variety of spiritual exercises to facilitate our growth. Wrestling with Grace is a "how-to" manual about loving yourself, others, the world around you, and God, especially on the Thursday afternoons of life, when the going gets tough.

Publishers Description
On a particularly trying Thursday afternoon, Robert Morris exclaimed in frustration and anger, "O God " That day Morris realized that his exclamation could be turned into a prayer by taking a second breath, refocusing, and offering the situation to God. This simple situation is the basis for Wrestling with Grace, a book that explores Christian discipleship in the routine moments and ordinary emergencies of life. Wrestling with Grace offers new insights into the daily practice of Christian spirituality. Morris encourages readers to gain personal spiritual insight by looking at their first or reactive emotions -- anger, frustration, and sadness. Morris understands these reactive emotions as natural, but he persuades readers to move beyond that first reaction to cultivate a "second breath" prayer. This book takes readers on a personal journey to see the possibilities of grace. By discerning how to overcome obstacles with grace and learning to bless the undesirables in our lives, we open our spirits to deeper joy and love. Some of the obstacles Morris discusses include fear of God, anger directed toward others, depression, sexual enticement, busyness, affluence, and evil. Moving beyond these obstacles, Morris invites readers to let grace work in their lives by loving enemies, forgiving others, acting with justice, dealing with lust, and embracing peace. Writing with touches of humor, Morris offers challenging insights into the spiritual journey. Wrestling with Grace is a "how to" manual about loving yourself, others, the world around you, and God, especially on the "Thursday afternoons" of life, when the going gets tough.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Growing in Spirit through stubbing your toe  Sep 7, 2003
First, I admit that I am the author's brother-in-law, and that we have been waiting thirty years for Bob Morris to write this book. I receive no financial benefit from anything to do with the book.
Nonetheless, this is the most practical and usable book I have ever read regarding the spiritual journey. With exquisite insight, kindness and gentle humor, the author leads us to find opportunities for spiritual progress in the very moments when we feel least "spiritual"--moments of anger, frustration, and disappointment. He invites us to expand our spiritual awareness beyond the church or meditation chamber to the bustling business of daily life. I have always found my own hopes for myself most tested in moments of frustration, whether at work, while driving, or in the multiple relationships of home life. This book is a clear and friendly guide to using those same difficult times as occasions to grow.
The predominant religious context of the book is Christian, but the author cites wisdom and example from many traditions, as well as from secular life. Moreover, he breathes new life into Christian passages which may have grown old in our hearing. Those who have found organized religion inadequate or unsatisfying can find here glimpses of the deep truths underlying religious traditions. Embodied in this book are both deep wisdom and a spirituality which welcomes all of us.
 
Warm and wise counsel for the spiritual path  Apr 2, 2003
"Mountaintop raptures are all well and good," writes Robert Corin Morris, "but what happens in the valley has long-lasting results in our lives and the lives of those we meet." Wrestling with Grace is a handbook for the valley, a guide to being a blessing in the world even in the midst of life's challenges. Morris shows how frustration, fear, anger, depression, busyness, status--all the things we wrestle with on a daily basis--can be doorways to the Spirit. Morris' reflections, like his interfaith ministry, are grounded in Judeo-Christian imagery and symbol and open to the wisdom of other faiths. Full of grace, humor, and stories of his own and others' "wrestling" experiences (along with ten meditative prayer exercises), this book gives encouragement, inspiration, and practical advice. It's a welcome companion for the rough edges of the spiritual life.
