The narrative style is passionate but friendly, like a faithful friend on the sidelines who encourages readers to embrace a more selfless and spiritually focused mindset. The essays are varied, well-organized, and offer a thought-provoking viewpoint on contemporary events, with a perspective on current happenings from an eschatological viewpoint that will certainly engage the devout from cover to cover.
