More About This Title The Life Worth Living


Each of us is confronted in life with visceral, personal, human questions: Why am I here? What is my life's purpose? For the reflective person of faith, life is an ongoing quest to respond to still further questions: Where is wisdom? What does the Lord require of me? The Life Worth Livingprovides answers to such questions -- culled from Byron Sherwin's many years of religious wisdom and experience.

Sherwin's rich and lovely book lays out the path to abundant, fulfilled living -- by cultivating religious virtues such as love, wisdom, gratitude, and humility. It demonstrates how living in partnership with God can provide all of us with the means to craft our lives into unique and "exquisite" works of art. Very accessibly written, The Life Worth Living will resonate with a wide spectrum of thoughtful readers -- believers and seekers alike.
