Notes:

by sirjohnjb (WorldCat user on 2006-11-30)

This book has successfully dissected the mystery of human relationships, growth and existence. None imposing, intelligent and powerful. This book is for both believers and unbelievers of God. This book is for those who thought they know much about life, but afraid to re-examine their existing sets of values and beliefs; and for those who are about to explore the mystery of human life. Next to your Sacred Books is this one.*** sirjohnjb@gmail.com ***
