Nature’s Grace: Encountering The Tree of Life

“Nature is shot through with grace, such that it is impossible to separate one from the other. Grace is not some alien force that occasionally intrudes into a closed system (“nature”). As G. M. Hopkins declared, “The world is charged with the grandeur of God.” It is grace all the way down.” – Stewart Clem

Click the title to read a great review of Malick’s “The Tree of Life” by Stewart Clem. The movie won’t come to Amarillo until it comes out on DVD, so I haven’t seen it. However, Clem discusses a theme I haven’t seen in other reviews. Plus, I love a review that includes footnotes.
