Part of it is the juxtoposition of the Christian shadings with a very unChristian world.

The long answer will have to wait.

The world always makes the assumption that the exposure of an error is identical with the discovery of truth--that the error and truth are simply opposite. They are nothing of the sort. What the world turns to, when it is cured of one error, is usually simply another error, and maybe one worse than the first one. H. L. Mencken

It puzzles me why the question of grace of whatever higher  power should be 
an issue in the TSK series, when it has been so  much discussed in both the 
Vorkosigan series (by Cordelia), and in the Chalion  books.  I don't see that the 
word *grace* is any more a deterrent than  the words *peace,* *hope,* or 
other words associated with religion as  well as other things, in a title.  It's a 
pleasant name for a river,  although if Lois is true to form, I'd expect a 
violent, whitewater  journey--
