The book in many ways is not a religious book. It is a book about God and our relationship with him. The author does not profess to have any spiritual contact with God, but his life's experience seem to have channeled his mind and thoughts to a God who is so different to our image of God that most religions have today. Fear seems to be the guiding force behind most religions, but fear of God plays no part in the God the author portrays. The life that we live on this earth is a separate life that plays no part in the life we go to when we die. The book opens up a new world for us to live in. A world in which all nationalities could come together as a family and live at last in harmony and peace.
