Writer and artist Hans Wilhelm delivers messages of comfort and courage in a book meant to inspire readers at times when their whole world seems falling down around them. He supplements his own inspiring thoughts by drawing from religious sources of many cultures and teachings. His central claims are twofold. First, he asserts that the realm of spirit--not the material world--is the ultimate reality. Second, he believes that all men and women are one with God. Citing from "Ecclesiastes, Isaiah, Psalms, The New Testament, "spiritual thinkers from the East, and even from secular writers like Goethe and Charles Dickens, Wilhelm offers words of wisdom for readers when they are facing tough situations, are frightened about the future, or are beset with personal suffering. Finally, Wilhelm invites his readers to "Celebrate life--even in the midst of a storm. Bring joy because you are Joy "
