Hello, I am trying to discover if Buber uses the word grace in any of his books to describe the natural gift that occurs between people when they meet in a deep way. Buber seems to imply in his work that we cannot will an I thou encounter but only be open to it. Therefore, I am wondering if you have any insight into which words he would use to describe what happens in that betweeness that is not a product of will or of turning. Books and Page numbers would be greatly appreciated. And if you know the word that he would use in german or hebrew it would be of great help. Thank-you for thinking about this. K
