When I started this book I needed confirmation that God WAS, no actually IS my Father- and by page 5 I had it! God adopted us at baptism and He wants us to live in the fullness of our Father-child relationship with Him. And this book simply helps you to see,after confirming to you that you ARE a child of God, what you need to do to live as a good child- humble, wanting to please your Father, wanting what He wants, talking to Him...

This is a book of "spiritual conferences". They read like homilies, I thought. The focus is on the mystery of God's Fatherhood, and how God leads people to Himself.

This is a good book to read when you only have a little bit of time for spiritual reading each day, because the chapters are short and self-contained.
