Education, medication, elections, corruptions, honour killing, child marriage, social media – you name it and the disease has already made deep wounds in our country’s body and soul.

What I think
The cover page consists of a man and woman sitting over a dining table. But, the food items are inscribed with complex issues that we face today – terrorism, murder drug addictions, suicide, killing, etc.  The book blurb is elaborate and narrates what can be expected in the book. The book consists of discussions between Amrita and Robert, husband and wife. Every night, they share some of their thoughts and discuss it in detail. In order to find reasons or solutions to the problems, they speak to Paul, God. And, Paul gives solutions based upon the gospels.
The book is neatly divided twelve chapters. Each chapter speaks about various issues like how education has become business, euthanasia, honor killing and gender bias to name a few.

I am happy that the authors took effort to speak about issues we are facing today. It is put across through simple words and flows with ease.

At the end of each chapter, Paul narrates about the root cause for such issues and speaks about how it can be solved. Paul also quotes verses from Bible. I, personally, did not like this idea. God giving solutions is one thing and the solutions coming from Bible is another thing. Suddenly, the book looks like it is preachy and religion driven. In a secular world, this could have been avoided.


Thank you
