Item description for The Wind, The Kite, The String by Edwin Willwerth...
Overview Willwerth's allegorical work presents his take on contemporary society. (Social Issues)
Publishers Description Two great writers and their books that have had an influenced on me in the writing of this book are Jonathan Swifts (1667-1745) and John Bunyan (1628-1688).Jonathan Swift masterpiece titled 'Gulliver's Travels' was an allegorical attack on the hypocrisy of the human behavior that he witnessed in almost every level of life in England, especially on the political stage.John Bunyan was the author of another famous allegorical book about a soul in search of salvation-'Pilgrim's Progress.'I do not believe this book will in any way approach the level of these two great masterpieces, but like Swift and Bunyan, I too have some comments about the behavior of my fellow Spacelanders (as I like to refer to them). What do they really believe in? What have they committed and dedicated their lives to? Because I believe the answers to these questions are the determining factors of their behavior.Like all allegorical books you will need a great imagination. But as Oscar Wilde said, "Imagination is a quality given man to compensate him for what he is not, and a sense of humor was provided to console him for what he is."Edwin Willwerth has been married for over fifty years and is the father of three children. He was a high school mathematics teacher for thirty years. Besides teaching in several public and private schools within the United States, he has also taught in Paraguay for one year, Nepal for two years and China for six months. He has been very active in his local church, serving for a number of years as a Sunday School teacher and later as head of the Sunday School Department. He was the Missionary Director within his church for several years. He has also spent time on Missionary projects in Haiti and Campeche, Mexico.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Wind, The Kite, The String?
A MUST READ Mar 23, 2008
Creative writing fans take heart. Here is a work that successfully integrates humor, imagination, theology and of all things Geometry. Unique and compelling are only two of the many possible adjectives to describe this book. At the very least, it should be requisite reading in college theology classes.
A unique way to look at religion. Mar 1, 2008
A book about religion and mathematics could be both dull and dry. This one is neither. I guarantee whatever your beliefs you will never look at religion the same again. The author is witty and unconventional and you will meet some of the strangest characters ever caught between the covers of a book. If you buy this book you will have a lot of ammunition to confound and amaze your friends.
