Overview

Reflections and insights collected in a humble volume of wisdom.

"Truth is One," as Pope John Paul II has said. But the discovery of that Truth is a deeply and essentially personal pilgrimage. Let the wisdom contained herein—the gleaning of one pilgrim's scrutiny—be a guide for your own journey to enlightenment. This book is meant to inspire, and to reaffirm.

These are travel notes, etched in the margins of that roadmap, the Holy Bible. A scenic guide through the wilderland and wonderland of life; the vantage from hilltop; the insight of a fellow journeyman, as a travel companion to provide good counsel and encouragement.

this is one of those profound little volumes that alters the current dialogue aand makes its own brazen contribution to philosophy. it provides a radical perspective. not for the faint of heart or weak of conviction. some of this stuff will set you on your ear. its keen insights and eloquence will disarm you. you can't help but race through the wise little aphorisms, your heart palpitating and you are totally oblivious to the passage of time! cool!
