Overview

In this delightfully twisting, engaging, multi-genre narrative. Robert Farrar Capon explores three areas of life that concern us all -- health, money, and love -- pokes fun of the religions we make of them, and trumpets the radical gospel of grace, the only alternative that can free us to be truly happy.

Using a variety of writing styles - movie script, dialogue, parable, letter, and his typically sparkling prose - Capon discusses religion and happiness in the light of "holy luck." the notion that God uses chance as his normal device for running the world and establishing his relationship with us. Blending his own experiences with ideas from a wide range of authorities, including Augustine. Dame Julian of Norwich, Meister Eckhart, Chesterton, and Charles Williams, Capon challenges us to rethink our conception of God, our values, and our entire lives.
