About this product
- DescriptionAll life is sacred because a divine, infinite God exists within all things, including humanity. With this profound truth in mind, Five Heaven on Earth Stories, written between 1974 and 2007, explores the meaning of life from the perspective of many different characters-many of whom are deeply committed naturalists who believe covering themselves is to cover the glory of God, and who are doing their best to find their own way in the world. Many lessons await within these stories, which include All's Well with the World, the tale of two young couples who share their personal discoveries as they search for life's meaning. The Seventh Record introduces an elderly couple coming to terms with the harsh realities of their final years together and how to address what awaits them on the other side, while From the Dark into the Light details the story of a minister's daughter who is asked by her father to close his traditional church-and afterward, a parishioner seeks her out in search of more answers. Filled with rich characters and deep spiritual realities, this unique collection of stories examines life's larger questions in light of God actually existing within all things.
- Author BiographyFrancis William Bessler was born in 1941 on a small farm outside of Powell, Wyoming. The second youngest of eight children, he has always felt close to nature-and thus to God. He graduated from Powell High in 1960 and attended Catholic seminaries in Wisconsin and Colorado for six years. After studying for five years at St. Thomas Seminary in Denver, he was terminated from further studies because, according to the school, his thinking was not that of a Catholic priest. He considers himself a Divine Naturist (his own term) and believes that separation from God is not possible because an infinite God must be within all things. Heaven exists everywhere, because God must be present everywhere.
