About-

What if you wanted to treat all of life as good, in full view of its pains?

It is not 'simply' that all of life is good, because its pains can clearly be overwhelming.

But is it possible to find life good, including its hard and painful parts?

How might one live that way?

----------------

This book is written so that rumors of God in his functional presence might not die out.

It is written so that those who want to affirm life in full view of its pains and wrongs may do so with recognition and intention.
