Summary

Since the beginning of time men and women everywhere have prayed — millions of prayers daily. Why, then, are only a handful answered? What roles do luck, chance, and fate play in our lives? How can we discover and live our destiny? Rich in romance, mystery, and spiritual insight, this wise and warm parable will revolutionize everything you’ve ever thought about prayer.

Joseph Hutchinson’s life has been filled with misfortune and adversity. A widowed father of two living on a farm that is about to be taken from him, Joseph embarks on a mission to save his children and himself. This quest brings him face-to-face with his greatest fears and ultimately leads him to his greatest discovery — a mysterious wooden box that has been hidden in his attic for more than one hundred years. This box, the Prayer Chest, contains secrets that will change Joseph’s — and your — life. This inspirational story speaks to everyone who has ever struggled and despaired, everyone who has prayed without receiving an obvious answer, and everyone who wonders about the true meaning and ultimate destiny of their life — in short, everyone.

    A collection of death dreams and ghost stories were gathered and presented to C.G. Jung and the author, who approaches this fascinating material from the depths of her analytic experience. 
     
    “… among the Swiss, who are commonly regarded as stolid, unimaginative, rationalistic and materialistic, there are just as many ghost stories and suchlike as, say, in England or Ireland. Indeed, as I know from my own experience … magic as practiced in the Middle Ages … has by no means died out, but still flourishes today … 
    I can recommend it to all those who know how to value things that break through the monotony of daily life with salutary effects, (sometimes!) shaking our certitudes and lending wings to the imagination.” – from the Foreword by C.G. Jung 
     
    We are left in the overpowering presence of a great mystery.
