On Purpose: How We Create the Meaning of Life
With so much emphasis of things that are devoid of purpose, it’s refreshing to see a written effort focusing on purpose, asking widening questions like why are we here? Paul Froese takes an intelligent stand on the meaning of purpose and how it affects our lives in his new book, On Purpose: How We Create the Meaning of Life.
In the first chapter Froese refers his readers to several assumptions. These map out the direction the author wishes to take his readers. The reality of meaninglessness is an avenue of a discussion of meaningfulness.
The book is a compact story of why we seek meaning inn life. Perhaps it is the search that motivates us to seek out meaning in life; perhaps that is our purpose. Additionally the book reaches out to individuals seeking life’s meaning in other ways too. Written in an absorbing style and filled with meaningful anecdotes, the book is a delight for summer reading. With Froese’s broad background in religious studies and sociological teaching, he is in a unique position to ponder the questions he raises in his the book.
Chris Hayden has been working at City Book Review since 2012, so that makes him the keeper of knowledge. He manages the office and book reviewers (all 200 of them!), which is no small feat. If you’re looking at the book reviews here, you’re seeing them because he sent the books out for review. Without him, this place would fall apart, because no one else in the office knows how to use the postage machine. Two words: job security.
