ÒI hole up in my own cozy cubicle and write, considering ways to make the approaching Thanksgiving holiday not just another day in this place. In prison, hope faces east; time is measured in wake-ups.Ó Time of Grace is a remarkable book, written with great eloquence by a former science teacher who was incarcerated for twelve years for his sexual liaison with a teenage student. Far more than a Òprison memoir,Ó it is an intimate and revealing look at relationshipsÑwith fellow humans and with the surprising wildlife of the Sonoran Desert, both inside and beyond prison walls. Throughout, Ken Lamberton reflects on human relations as they mimic and defy those of the natural world, whose rhythms calibrate LambertonÕs days and years behind bars. He writes with candor about his life, while observing desert flora and fauna with the insight and enthusiasm of a professional naturalist. While he studies a tarantula digging her way out of the packed earth and observes Mexican freetail bats sailing into the evening sky, Lamberton ruminates on his crime and on the wrenching effects it has had on his wife and three daughters. He writes of his connections with his fellow inmatesÑsome of whom he teaches in prison classesÑand with the guards who control them, sometimes with inexplicable cruelty. And he unflinchingly describes a prison system that has gone horribly wrongÑa system entrapped in a self-created web of secrecy, fear, and lies. This is the final book of LambertonÕs trilogy about the twelve years he spent in prison. Readers of his earlier books will savor this last volume. Those who are only now discovering LambertonÕs distinctive voiceÑpart poet, part scientist, part teacher, and always deeply, achingly humanÑwill feel as if they are making a new friend. Gripping, sobering, and beautifully written, LambertonÕs memoir is an unforgettable exploration of crime, punishment, and the power of the human spirit.

In Signs of Grace (R&L 2001), Nicholas Ayo, C.S.C., described the spaces and places of the Notre Dame campus. Times of Grace is the follow-up to this acclaimed and successful meditation. In four parts divided by season, Times of Grace explores ordinary moments of study and play, quiet times set aside for personal and academic reflection, and official university and Catholic holidays. Days at Notre Dame are filled with unnoticed glory in the punctuating events of each year. Ayo traces through these shared experiences a common thread of community spirit and individual reflection.

Through narrative and reflection, this book tells the story of one elderly but still active and independent woman who was suddenly incapacitated by a stroke and of how she and her family attempted to cope with her reduced state. The author -- her son -- in order to help her had to learn to deal not only with his own feelings and with his relationship to her but also with a variety of institutions. Positive as well as negative experiences convinced him of the importance of family involvement and the crucial role that health-care professionals are called upon to play in fostering it. In spite of real difficulties, the last year of his mother's life proved to be a time of grace.

Described by Pope Pius XII as the most important theologian since Thomas Aquinas, the Swiss pastor and theologian, Karl Barth, continues to be a major influence on students, scholars and preachers today. Barth's theology found its expression mainly through his closely reasoned fourteen-part magnum opus, Die Kirchliche Dogmatik. Having taken over 30 years to write, the Church Dogmatics is regarded as one of the most important theological works of all time, and represents the pinnacle of Barth's achievement as a theologian. T&T Clark International is now proud to be publishing the only complete English translation of the Church Dogmatics in paperback.
