      (Eerdmans, ), a reflection of short essays based on the questions that Jesus poses, echoed many of the themes from his essays, sermons and retreats over the past 50 years. Beginning in , Buckley published reviews, articles, book chapters, and popular writings, that spoke to the religious dimension of human life.   The last speech in the book ends on a note that is both challenging and upbeat: “We are the change and change is coming.” The edition published in Britain earlier this year contained 11 speeches; this updated edition all worth reading. A tiny book, not much bigger than a pamphlet, with huge potential impact.

Also, he explains his own theory about what each of The Endless represent saying that he symbolizes creation, in this same way he goes on to say that Death is to life as Despair is to hope, Desire.

      We conflate love and desire in this life, in this modern way, in this age. Don’t we? We say: “I love this! I couldn’t live without it!”. What we really mean is: this eases my desire a little bit. We do it with people too, don’t we? We think “I desire this person. I must love them”. A nice bit of trivia - The desire to live. it turns out it's actually a real book, called "Le Desir de Vivre" by Paul Acker. The name translates to "The desire to live", and this book was also present in Dark Souls 1, in the Duke's Archives. Being a fairly short girl it's hard to make armors without looking like a dwarf at the same time xD.
