The Water of Life is a collection of eight extremely important fairy tales together with David L. Hart's in depth analysis of their spiritual and psychological meaning. Each of these tales reveals, in its own way, an encounter with a previously unknown, powerful world, whose effect on the outcome of the story depends on how the hero or heroine deals with it. Does she or he relate to it, listen to it, learn from it? If so, life, its true meaning and true possibility, is transformed. There ensues not "wish-fulfillment"—which is typically assumed about fairy tales with their happy endings—but life fulfilled, genuine happiness based on awakening to and realizing spiritual reality.
