H.A. Williams wrote: "To the ordinary person God's Joy is known only in shreds and patches."In this long-awaited re-issue, Williams explores the worlds of selfhood, of other people, of nature, and of the arts, and combines these into a book that is a celebration of Joy as hope. He reminds us that we are often in the position of the prodigal son who needs to be reminded of the joy of his father's home and also, most pressingly, needs to be put back on the road towards it. He bids us to remember that the hole in the human heart cannot be filled by anything less than God.
