This book is the result of a lifetime nourished by God’s love and guidance. It would not be possible without wonderful family and friends who surround me.

Particularly my amazing wife Tanja who supports me even while studying post-grad psychology in a vain hope to understand me ;-). And my kids who put up with long discussions about this stuff and my obsessiveness which takes away my attention from them. Also, for their input into this book, especially Chenielle’s amazing cover art.

Also, my parents who have accompanied me through the first half of my life and provided a spiritually rich environment, which made it so much easier to get to know God personally. And a long heritage of godly ancestors, who are cheering me on from Heaven and looking forward to our acquaintance.
