Letters to God shines like a jewel. In this book combining prose and poetry, Dr. Luciano Jaramillo Cardenas, one of the most important Spanish-speaking biblicists and a tireless scholar of religious studies at the most advanced level, has managed to unlock the solemnity of the orator, the innate beauty of the poetic language as well as the impeccably elegant prose that is not always easy to understand. In these epistles he sends powerful messages directed to the intellectual as well as to the reader of average understanding. The theological content does not contradict the great inspiration that is offered even to those who are unitiated in these elevated and imperishable matters. Writing a letter to God is just as meaningful as any other daily task, even though few have written such letters for the purpose of publishing them. Prayer is like a letter that we send to our Supreme Maker. The divine answer may arrive through a good sermon or a good lecture, through the fitting words of a counselor, through the events of personal life or of collective history, to mention only a few possibilities. We also may find answers in this book to important matters related to a very fundamental question: Who was the real Christ?
