"Joa's luminous visions quicken the spirit, nourish the soul, and provide manna for contemplation. A book overflowing with God's grace." —Nan C. Merrill, author of Psalms for Praying and Meditations and Mandalas - The visionary testimony of Joa Bolendas awakens us to the full reality of spiritual life on earth and in heaven. To be alive in God’s world means living in a prayerful and powerful unity with God, with those risen from the dead, and all the peoples of the earth. To live this unity is truly human. The focus of the visions contained in this book is to bring awareness of the deep bonds uniting the living with each other, with the dead, and with God. - In these fragments of discourses with those risen from the dead as reported here, we experience their awakening to a new life in a greater life in God’s world. The risen ones tell us to make God’s kingdom alive on earth and thus release a process of great spiritual energy to guide humanity and restore the earth to its spiritual axis.
