Life Worth Living: A Guide to What Matters Most

Convocation is almost here so we thought we would share with you an inspirational book. In Life Worth Living: A Guide to What Matters Most, Miroslav Volf, Matthew Croasmun, and Ryan McAnnally-Linz offer a guide to defining and creating a flourishing life. The book is based on their popular class at Yale. Religious thinkers and philosophers consulted include Jesus, Socrates, the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., the Dalai Lama, Ida B. Wells, Friedrich Nietzsche and others. The book provides readers with jumping-off points, road maps, and habits of reflection for determining the meaning in their lives and where things need to change.

Once you are finished, check out the rest of our Popular Reading collection. Titles range from commentary, fiction, historical fiction, mystery, suspense, non-fiction, current affairs, science, social issues, and politics.
