Although the advancement of material culture has brought extreme conveniences to modern life, human beings are still living with the same fears and uncertainties as in non-civilized times. No matter how the superficial standard of living might improve, humanity will not find happiness until we resolve such fundamental problems as war, natural disasters, and the fear of suffering and death. God and Man was written as a source of guidance and wisdom for those striving to rise above such problems and attain true happiness.
Revealing our true connection with God and our guardian divinities and spirits, God and Man provides a clear picture of the spiritual dimensions of the universe and tells how we may transcend karmic cycles to attain our natural state of infinite love, wisdom, and joy. Contains an invaluable appendix of the author's answers to people's questions, and a supplementary article by Masahisa Goi entitled "Prayer for World Peace."

About the Author
Born in Tokyo, Japan, on November 22, 1916, Masahisa Goi was a poet, philosopher, writer, and singer. Though he aimed at a career in music, he found himself spontaneously drawn to the realms of philosophy and spiritual guidance. At the age of 33 he attained oneness with his divine self. From that time on, he endeavored to reach out to people by holding informal talks, where anyone was invited to participate and ask questions. He enjoyed this direct contact with people, and provided many with spiritual guidance toward the attainment of inner peace. Mr. Goi authored more than 60 books and volumes of poetry, including God and Man (his first and most fundamental work), One Who Unites Heaven and Earth (an autobiography of his early life), The Spirit of Lao Tsu, Essays on the Bible, How to Develop Your Spirituality, and Catch the Light, to name a few. Translations of many of his works are in progress. Based on the universal prayer May Peace Prevail on Earth which he advocated, Masahisa Goi founded a worldwide movement of world peace through prayer, transcending religious, ethnic, and political boundaries. Before departing from this world in 1980, he named Mrs. Masami Saionji, his adopted daughter, as his successor and leader of the world peace prayer movement that he initiated.
