Gerhard  Engelsberger - A Festival for the Weary


Stories with meaning and texts of consolation

"I have in mind a book that someone wanting to give consolation to another person can pick up just like someone switching on their bedside lamp one more time in order to find peace." With his reading book of consolation, Gerhard Engelsberger is offering a little "tender loving care" for the soul, relating to books of consolation of previous generations – the Bible and hymn book.

In his book of consolation he tells Bible stories in such a way that for readers in search of comfort it will be as if he were "taking them into his arms". The book also contains some new prayers of comfort, consoling Psalm texts, consoling songs and their history, and short stories and aphorisms written by Gerhard Engelsberger himself.
