(write a short synopsis when the book arrives)

The following might be the Biblical text that inspired the little book. "Saying this, He went with His disciples to Bethany and stopped on the Mount of Olives. While they beheld, He was taken up, and a cloud received Him out of their sight. And while they looked steadfastly toward heaven as He went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel, who also said, 'Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? This same Jesus, who is taken up from you into Heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen Him go into Heaven'" (Acts 1:9-11).
