Golden Threads: The Greatest Story Ever Mistold
SummaryThe author begins his true story with the memory of family tragedy and the efforts to be self-sufficient on a small plot of land. He writes about the end of WWII, wanting to fly away to other places, personal cynics concerning clergy, and the petty schisms that split Christian churches into many denominations. He includes events and discussions with people in domestic and foreign places where he has served, worked, and lived about their religion and beliefs for which he observes common elements. His dreams of riding a big chestnut steed started when he was a young boy. The dreams recurred for over forty years. He uses the dreams to symbolically reflect the stages of his life where he strips himself of things that finally sets him free from his anger and doubts.
