148 pages. A few decades ago it was declared that God was dead. Today, however, more and more people find themselves in search of the transcendent, the spiritual, the religious. We are again living in an age which is searching for God. There are fundamental aspects of this search that we do not understand, and it is to these that this book is addressed. How do we receive God's grace? How do we become aware of, and enter into a relationship with, God? Is there any way of knowing we are on the right path? ‘It is certainly not the intention of this book to point the reader to a shortcut, writes Andre Louf. I only hope that it may serve to make clearer what is actually going on when we grope our way in dark faith and blind love, with no sign of success. Attuning ourselves to God's grace is shown to be the key to the search for God, and the fundamental experiences that are part of our quest are illuminated: conversion, temptation, repentance, fruits of the Spirit and prayer. Tuning in to Grace challenges our assumption that we must repent of our sins before we can be recipients of God's grace: Andre Louf argues that grace is intermingled with sin because, the road of sin and mercy is the obvious place from which to connect with God and attune ourselves to his marvellous grace. Tuning in to Grace is the result of Andre Louf's many years’ experience of prayer and contemplation. The practical wisdom it contains will provide help, reassurance and comfort for all of us struggling in the search for God. Andre Louf entered the Trappist Monastery of Mont-des-Cats (Katsberg) in France in 1947 and was elected Abbot in 1963. He is the author of Teach us to Pray (new edition published by DLT in 1991), a classic work on prayer. There is a name in the first page and highlighting in some text..
