The reader can immerse himself in images coming from life with children, with other men and with God.

They can touch the heart of the reader in a deep and warm way, yet they are so soft as to leave their innermost core intact. He is not oppressed by moral precepts, nor by dogmas. And yet it will become another if he lets himself be led on a road that requires only repeated small steps and leads to great goals.
