In this lovely book, award-winning poet JoaquC-n Antonio PeC1alosa shares with us the diary of God, a daily record of the Eternal Father's hopes, plans, and workings in the world. Simple yet masterful, childlike yet insightful, these poetic diary entries present the basic truths of the Jewish and Christian Scriptures in an original and charming way, uniquely capturing the intimate heart of God.

Full of tenderness and humor, "God's Diary" takes us through history, from before there was time to the end of time, and paints a picture of a God truly in love with the world he has created -- from ants and animals to saints and sinners. Like any diary, this one also discloses the secret desires of its author, revealing God's divine intention for history and for humanity. Whether describing the making of an ant, the lively singing of heaven's angels, or Christ's crucifixion, PeC1alosa is sure to give readers a refreshingly new perspective on God and creation.

Skillfully rendered into English by Alvaro de Silva from PeC1alosa's original --" a best-seller in Mexico -- the pages of "God's Diary" also explore the joys and sorrows of human existence with fresh insight. Just as God grieved over Cain and Abel, he grieves for those of us who are suffering or lonely, PeC1alosa points out. But God is also with us when we experience life's abundant joys -- the beauty of his exuberant creation, the bliss of first love, the blessing of his presence.

Lovers of poetry, fans of such imaginative works as C. S. Lewis's "Screwtape Letters, " and thoughtful readers everywhere will appreciate PeC1alosa's delightful creation.
