This book is a work of love, a soliloquy to God woven around the precepts of Christian faith. Within its pages, Marian Wu has crafted a recipe for a pure and fruitful life, one enshrined in hope, peace and devotion to God. Using the gifts of nature as metaphors for the universality of the human spirit, Wu sets out the tools for overcoming doubt, fear and spiritual corruption.
Psalms and proverbs from the bible are used to narrate the human condition, addressing the existential problems we face in daily life. A historical perspective is also used to illustrate the role that faith has played in the rise and fall of nations and dynasties. Seamlessly interspersed within these biblical and historical teachings is a kaleidoscopic fount of the author's own prose to delight the senses with colour and nuance. This work is a balm for the soul and food for the mind.
