Among books designed to help people discern their reason for living, this one is exceptional for its interfaith perspective and its clear text readily accessible to people of all backgrounds and education levels. Rev. Poos-Benson mines the wisdom of the great spiritual heroes—Jesus, Buddha, Krishna, Mohammed, Lao Tzu—to reveal the pattern for how God works in the world. He believes God has sent each of us to fulfill a unique destiny; in order to find meaning in life, we must understand why we have been sent and then fulfill that purpose. Having been one of the first responders after the Columbine school shootings, he is well-qualified for his focus on the thorny issue of great trauma and accident. Using teachings from Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism, Taoism, Hinduism, and contemporary New Age philosophy, Rev. Poos-Benson empowers readers to become aware of how the Divine is moving through their lives in spite of tremendous suffering and evil. He also provides questions for individuals and groups to ponder. The result is a vibrant text that leads to healing and self-transformation.
