"A needed and welcome account of Carry Nation's story... deservesthe highest praise." -- Journal of AmericanHistory
"Admirably interweaves early 20th-century religiousculture, regional politics, the suffrage and temperance movements, and the woman whoworked zealously to unite them all." -- Library Journal (starredreview)
In her well-received biography of Carry A. Nation, FranGrace unfolds a story that often contrasts with the common public image of Nation as"Crazy Carry," a bellicose, blue-nosed, man-hating killjoy. Using newlyavailable archival materials and placing Nation in her various historical andcultural contexts, Grace "retells" the crusader's tumultuous life. Thiscomplexly woven and delightfully written biography begins the work of recoveringNation's often fascinating, often disturbing life.

A note on the sources
Fran Grace serves as Professor of Religious Studies and founding Steward of the Meditation Program at the University of Redlands in California, where she has helped to pioneer a contemplative and intergenerational approach to university education.
She has received numerous recognitions for her teaching and research into spiritual life, including appearances on CSPAN and NPR. Her academic awards include a Pew Fellowship from Yale University, Luce Fellowship in Comparative Religion and Theology, Lily-Luce Teaching Fellowship, and many teaching awards. After receiving her Ph.D. in 1997 from Princeton Theological Seminary, she wrote the biography of iconic moral reformer, Carry A. Nation: Retelling the Life (2001), called a landmark biography by Publisher's Weekly.
In 2004, a life crisis opened up a deeper interest in the existential and spiritual sides of life, and thus she spent many years investigating the inner arts and sciences, expressed in publications such as Meditation and the Classroom (2011, co-edited with Judith Simmer-Brown) and the 50-minute documentary film she directed, A Semester Within (2008). Her quest was unexpectedly enriched by an encounter with a spiritual teacher who introduced her to a path of inner freedom that respects the foundational teachings of all spiritual traditions.
Before her teacher's death in 2012, she edited and wrote the Forewords to his widely popular books Letting Go: The Pathway of Surrender (2012) and the revised edition of Power vs. Force (2012), both by Dr. David R. Hawkins, who taught her: Love is both the means and the end.
In 2008, she founded The Institute for Contemplative Life, a 501c3 nonprofit organization dedicated to the inner pathway common to all religions: compassion, forgiveness, love, beauty, humor, and joy.
Her new book, The Power of Love: A Transformed Heart Changes the World, integrates her academic training with her own personal quest as she shares her encounters with fourteen renowned spiritual leaders from diverse traditions, scientists, activists, and artists, including Dr. David R. Hawkins, The 17th Karmapa, Mother Teresa, Viktor Frankl, Sadhguru Vasudev, Tenzin Palmo, International Council of the 13 Indigenous Grandmothers, Betty Eadie, and Huston Smith. A pre-release celebration of the book occurred at the 125th Parliament of World Religions, with its global theme for 2018 of "The Power of Love."
