Pastor Tim Lundstrom has two weeks to decide. Soon he will preside over his daughter Gracie's wedding--a blessing he has long prayed for--but as the day approaches, he finds himself dreading its arrival. Tim harbors a shameful secret: he has lost his faith. Revealing himself risks losing Gracie, his adored and only child; his vulnerable autistic grandson, Luke; his dutiful second wife; and the evangelical community he has nurtured at his small Texas church. But the price of silence is steep. Performing the ceremony as a nonbeliever will taint Gracie's wedding and bind him forever to the secret that isolates him from those he loves. He isn't the only one hiding the truth. Josephine Wallis, an accomplished pathologist, has yet to reveal the news of her pregnancy to her longtime boyfriend. Compounding her worries is the looming deadline of the wedding--will her intellectually disabled younger sister be ready to live on her own when Gracie and Luke move out of the apartment the three now share? A poignant exploration of the boundaries of trust and the repercussions of secrets, A Mosaic of Grace captivates with its skillful weaving of the lives of the Lundstrom and Wallis families as they wrestle with uncertainty and stumble towards acceptance. "Written with a deft understanding of what it means to be human, A Mosaic of Grace is a heartfelt portrait of two families struggling to meet the expectations of love and community in the face of wavering faith."--Daniel Burgess, New York Book Editors An interview with the author: Q: Disability, in the form of autism, epilepsy, and intellectual disability, figures prominently in the novel. Why did you choose to focus on this subject? A: First, let me say that this is not a novel about the testing of faith due to disability. In writing, the adage is "write what you know," and disability has played a large role in my professional and personal life. The character of Luke is a snapshot of my older son at age nine. The first line of the novel--"What name this one is it?"--is a direct quote. Q: Why tackle a subject as emotionally charged as religion? I find it fascinating that discussing religion is considered taboo. I suppose it's because our belief systems are so intricately tied with our identities--so for some, considering another group's worldview can feel like a challenge to their own. But religion claims to answer man's biggest questions, so why wouldn't we want to examine various perspectives and see what can be learned? Christianity is the religion used in the book, but the same story could be told in the context of any religion. The premise is the same: What is at stake when you are part of a devout community and your beliefs differ from those that you love? Q: Most of the characters in both of the book's families carry secrets. Do you think that's an accurate depiction of family life, or did you dramatize for the sake of the novel? A: Well, secrets are compelling and dramatic by nature. What's interesting to me is the fact that there's no way of knowing what's accurate, because we can't read others' minds. Secrets come in all shapes and sizes, and we all choose how much information to share with the people that come into our lives. Where are these lines drawn, and why? What are the consequences of such decisions? The answers to these questions are the crux of the story.

"The story of Christian theology has often been divisive and disjointed. Providing a companion volume to his earlier work The story of Christian theology, Roger Olson thematically traces out Christian belief down through the ages, revealing a pattern of both unity and diversity. He finds a consensus of teaching that is both unitive and able to incorporate a faithful diversity when not forced into the molds of false either-or alternatives. The mosaic that emerges from Olson's work displays a mediating evangelical theology that is nonspeculative and irenic in spirit and tone. Specifically written with the nonspecialist in mind, Olson has masterfully sketched out the contours of Christian faith with simplicity while avoiding oversimplification."--

The past casts a long shadow, especially when it points to a woman's first love. Her name was Mary Grace until she fell in love with the French exchange student visiting her family's Nebraska farm. François renamed her "Aglaia"-after one of the beautiful Three Graces of Greek mythology-and set the seventeen-year-old girl longing for something more than her parents' simplistic life and faith. Now, fifteen years later, Aglaia works as a costume designer in Denver. Her budding success in the city's posh arts scene convinces her that she's left the naïve farm girl far behind. But "Mary Grace" has deep roots, as Aglaia learns during a business trip to Paris. Her discovery of sensual notes that François jotted into a Bible during that long-ago fling, a silly errand imposed by her mother, and the scheming of her sophisticated mentor all conspire to create a thirst in her soul that professional success can't quench. THE THIRD GRACE takes you on a dual journey across oceans and time in the footsteps of a woman torn between her rural upbringing and her search for self.
