7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Cameron B. Clark VINE VOICE on July 16, 2001
Mr. Frank Laubach explored the landscape of his own soul and that of the Moros within the all-pervading presence of God, and laid bare his soul, through these letters, to the public gaze so that we, too, might share in the unfathomable love and glory of the divine encounter. I cannot help but love this man who loved his God and sacrificed all to commune with Him. His difficult "experiment" of maintaining God-consciousness throughout each day is put into words that burn and smoke with a holy passion that touches the mystery of God. Inner solitude and persistent meditation upon the divine produced an unconditional, unwavering love for others that motivated his work of education to the point that even though the labor was long and hard, it was worth it for he knew his God, the Creator of the Universe, was a Fellow Laborer. The reciprocated love from the people, expressed in simple ways, was an extra gift. One is blessed by Mr. Laubach's shared encounters with God's glory on Signal Hill, his reflections on those encounters, and the inspiring words that God spoke through his mouth. The wisdom of humility adorns his thoughts, including those on suffering. One learns that God is not indifferent to our suffering but actually suffers with us in Christ and through Christ overcomes it in love. Hence, the significance of Easter and our ability to overcome by choosing Christ. Does this remove the mystery? No, for with Christ comes mystery, even the greatest mystery... but to reject Him brings despair.
This is a precious and unique book because Frank Laubach was just such an individual. But he also knew that each one of us is precious and unique, and who better to recognize and eternally appreciate that fact than the One who made us that way?
