Arcadian Grace means to witness a multitude of thoughts and events which happened through various cultures, with the intention of serving a relevance to our lives in the twenty-first century.

Produktbeschreibung
From prehistory until now there are moments worth discovering poetically: the incarnation of the Word into flesh, the search for the meaning of suffering, the revelation of love in a look, Christ's descent into hell, the onslaught of death, the abundance of life. Arcadian Grace means to witness a multitude of thoughts and events which happened through various cultures, with the intention of serving a relevance to our lives in the twenty-first century. We still seek out quietude as would a T'ang Dynasty poet on the shores of West Lake, our aspiration to rise, if only for an instant, into levels far surpassing the concrete, capable of being cracked, would meet the expectation evinced in a transcendentalist philosopher's highest excursion, our despair at seeing wanton destruction, a theologian's in the Second World War. And does the Spirit today, in the miasma of despair and confusion, reach us with the real power of light and love? The reality found through this adventure of time is that it does.
Autorenporträt
Years have passed since Stephen Falconer first glanced at the pages of the I Ching. The readings were prophetic. He was not to concern himself with wealth and outward symbols of success, but to concentrate on the book itself, and to follow where it led--to a love for Santoka Taneda, Basho, and Tang dynasty poetry, yet at the back of it all a respect for the Changes and the fruits it would engender.
