“Some may wonder how I, a non-believer, entrust all to God … I feel the world is a matter of Chance, and the existence of God is among the possible chances”. Faith can not be taught. Either it’s there or it isn’t. And once again, it is “Chance” with a capital C, an omnipotent force with an obscure design, that bestows it on humankind. Written between 1967 and 1969 during his second and final exile from Italy, Prezzolini set his hand to this book impulsively with youthful impetus and an immediate sincerity, but without pessimism. It carries what we feel a still-intriguing suggestion to trustingly and responsibly seize the variety of opportunities existence offers, refining the tools of knowledge in all fields, and improving one’s techniques of behaviour and coexistence in society. The book also contains his correspondence with pope Paul VI and an anthology of articles written between 1905 and 1979.
