Item description for Putting the Amazing Back in Grace by Ann Weems...
Overview A popular Christian narrative poet, Weems recalls her growing up as a minister's daughter, then reflects on her own faith journey, commenting along the way on quite a number of dead-ends the contemporary church has encountered. Includes poems "Soul Stains," "Stars for the Righteous," "Giving Up for Lent," and more.
In "Putting the Amazing Back in Grace," Ann Weems reflects on the church of her childhood and youth, writing about her personal faith story as it developed amid the influences of family, culture, and religion. She goes on to reflect on the contemporary church--mourning, eloquently, the condition of the church today, charging that it has put process over people, division over unity, and corporate strategizing over conversation and consultation with God.

Amazing Weems Jun 5, 2000
Once again, Ann Weems invites us into the world of faith with her poetic imagery. Putting the Amazing Back in Grace speaks with a deeply intimate knowledge of the present reality in Church life. There is both pain and beauty, struggle and hope in this rather raw book. I've used it already to speak for me in a couple of different venues.
