    collective miracle between...

    Hello everyone

    I'd like to ask what "collective miracle between" implies in the following context:

    What you hold in your hands is no less than a collective miracle between WE of the Subterranean Community and the author of this book. It is a miracle of love, dedication, and heart-felt desire between kinsman and family. I am privileged and honored to be able to come forward to present this collaborative effort on behalf of Telos and those of us who dwell beneath the surface on this beautiful planet which you call Earth.

    Does the phrase "collective miracle between" imply that the book in question is the result of joint efforts of the author and the "Subterranean Community"?
