Today the question of time has become one of the most urgent. We think we live with a constant lack of time; that we don't have enough time in our lives. And when many of us experience stress and burn-out, we understand that this way of life cannot go on.
Can time be our friend? And how can we make use of the immense opportunites that time offers us?
Stinnisen's classic book helps us to dare to see time with new eyes, to meditate on time and what it means. The insight that eternity is written in the depths of our hearts can help us to live in time in a new way that leads us deeper into God's joy.
He says that we should rejoice in the fact that everything around us is so great and mysterious that we can live in eternal wonder. We are like children in a land of fairy tales where everything is exciting and exploration never ends.
His intention is not to explain what time is and thus take away its mystery. Instead, his aim is to focus on time, to see it from different perspectives, to discover how rich and multi-faceted time is. Above all, he shows how we can make use of the tremendous possibilities that time offers to us.
