An electrifying story of fear and sacrifice, and what people will do to outrun the shadows. Iraqi aspiring pianist Nasim falls from favour with Saddam Hussein and his psychopathic son, triggering a perilous search for safety. In Australia, decades later, Gerry is in fear of his tyrannical father, Toohey, who has returned from the Iraq War bearing the physical and psychological scars of conflict. Meanwhile, Robbie is dealing with her own father’s dementia when the past enters the present. These characters’ worlds intertwine in a brilliant narrative of guilt and reckoning, trauma and survival. Crossing the frontiers of war, protest and reconciliation, Act of Grace is a meditation on inheritance: the damage that one generation passes on to the next, and the potential for transformation. ‘Act of Grace is bold, brilliant and breathtakingly humane. Anna Krien makes riveting the sweep of history and the lived price of war; at the same time she reveals, with great insight, the intimacies of daily love and tiny, splintering acts of violence in families. She is both wide-angle and close-up, and there is redemption in every line. Anna Krien is the real deal – a novelist for our times.’ —Anna Funder, author of All That I Am ‘Masterful – a far-reaching tapestry of a novel. Nuanced and whip-smart, this is a work of profound empathy – a book of and for our times. As Act of Grace unfolds with precise muscularity, Krien’s inhabitation of each character approaches the divine.’ —Peggy Frew, author of The Islands and Hope Farm ‘Act of Grace is a work of stunning virtuosity. Krien has taken a huge leap of creative faith, and from the very first page to the last I was ready to follow her anywhere.’ —Ceridwen Dovey, author of In the Garden of the Fugitives and Only the Animals ‘An ambitious and compelling study of trauma and how it’s transferred and inherited ... a nuanced consideration of the different forms and ethics of activism.’ —Books+Publishing

An Act of Grace/The Right Side of History portrays a portion of the 133 year period of Meharry Medical College's history, beginning prior to its formal organization in 1876 with a singular act of grace bestowed by a 16 year old farmer, Samuel Meharry, upon a family of freed slaves who befriended him when his salt wagon became disabled as he traveled through the swamps of Kentucky. The text covers the early years of Meharry's existence through the year 2006 researched for accuracy, complimented by anecdotal information obtained through personal interviews of a few members of the Board of Trustees, numerous alumni, administrators, members of the faculty, staff, and philanthropic friends who have been, in some way, associated with or knowledgeable of Meharry Medical College within the last 50 years.

Why would Grace Johnson, an African American high school senior, take a bullet to save the life of a Ku Klux Klansman named Jonathan Gilmore? The question hovers unanswered over Grace's hometown of Vigilant, Michigan. Few people, black or white, understand her sacrifice, especially since rumor has it years ago a member of Gilmore's family murdered several African Americans including Grace's father. Grace doesn't want to talk about it, but the decision to speak is not hers to make. Ancestor spirits emerge to insist, in ways Grace cannot ignore, that she bear witness to her town's violent racial history so that all involved might transcend it. With hindsight made telescopic by the wisdom found in African American mythology and the book The Velveteen Rabbit, Grace recounts a story of eye-for-an-eye vengeance that has blinded entire generations in her hometown. Faced with the horrific crimes that have disfigured her life, Grace wonders if in the end, she can do as the spirits have asked and lead Mr. Gilmore, the town of Vigilant and her own soul on a journey toward reconciliation, redemption and true grace.

A minority of Christians give 10 percent or more of their income to churches and missions, supporting the bulk of church work done today. If more people give, the possibilities will be breathtaking"€"but first we must change the way we think. Jim Petty wants to revolutionize our view along scriptural lines. Our money is for giving; it is an exciting, tangible means for showing love and mercy to others. Petty traces this perspective through the stories of Old Testament saints, our Lord Jesus, and the early church. He also evaluates Christian giving throughout history, showing how and why it has fluctuated over time. Although talking about money feels taboo to many of us, God doesn't have the same reservations, and Petty shows how we can responsibly plan our own finances, including retirement, and encourage greater generosity by educating others in a church context. After all, God himself is a giver, not a taker, and he calls us to imitate him in his generosity.

In modern society, 1 in 3 women have been sexually abused in some form. Currently the news relays stories of women and girls being trafficked as sex slaves. The problems in our world are growing. Christians must face their own demons in order to respond to the needs of others, instead of turning a blind eye or over-reacting to those problems. This bible study is designed to help women who have been sexually abused to overcome the residuals of that abuse in a safe and down-to-earth manner, using the Bible and psychology in a complementary way. The end result sought for is a restored woman with a desire to minister to others. We have been first-hand witnesses of beautifully changed lives, healed marriages and restored families as a result of this study.

It is through brief moments in our lives that the spiritual most often communicates itself. Fleeting as they are, these small encounters with the “familiar wild” instruct us in dealing with change and loss. They are the icons that point not so much to answers, but to a way of living in the tension between life and death. Written as reflections, rather than full-blown arguments, Icons of Loss and Grace offers no final resolution to the questions it presents. Yet in these essays we may recognize that delight and sorrow are soul mates, that loss and redemption are a part of the same sacred ground, and that pain can evolve into grace.
