In this joyful exploration of grace's many forms, Pulitzer Prize winning critic Sarah L. Kaufman celebrates a too-often-forgotten philosophy of living that promotes human connection and fulfillment. Drawing on the arts, sports, the humanities and everyday life - as well as the latest findings in neuroscience and health research - Kaufman illuminates how our bodies and our brains are designed for grace. She promotes a holistic appreciation and practice of grace, as the joining of body, mind and spirit, and as a way to nurture ourselves and others.
