In this unique book the author takes a personal, humorous, light, and loving look at Joseph, depicting his life as a husband and father, homebuilder, and carpenter. Hundreds of thousands of people, including the author, have sold their homes under the patronage of St. Joseph, whose intercession they sought after burying his statue in their yard. He shows that the popular statue-burying practice is not a superstition, but part of a prayerful devotion. He also provides prayer services for selling a house and blessing a new home.

I found this book to be very informative and really made me think about St. Joseph's life, who he was as a person. It nice to have a realistic look on bible figures. This book explains quite nicely how praying to St. Joseph and asking for his intervention with Jesus is indeed a very spiritual experience. There is no superstition in the practice of asking St. Joseph for home selling help!!!!
