So true and full of wonder.
Kenneth Coughlan4 Stars Out Of 5December 19, 2008Kenneth CoughlanOverall this is a very good book and mirrors many of Dr. Zacharias' talks on the subject of finding meaning in life. Dr. Zacharias does not claim that you cannot assign a meaning to each individual task in your life. You mow the lawn to keep it from getting out of hand. You do your job to earn a paycheck. But all of these meanings are task-specific. You do not mow your lawn to earn a paycheck. You do not do your job in order to keep the grass from getting unwieldy. If this is all there is, life turns into a never ending struggle to discover the meaning behind each individual act.Dr. Zacharias proposes that in order to find that one overarching meaning that gives value to everything we do, we need to recapture a sense of wonder in our lives, and the only one able to instill us with that awe-inspiring wonder is God.Dr. Zacharias' thesis is worthy of 5 stars. The only reason I reduced the rating to 3 1/2 is due to the execution. At times it seemed like Dr. Zacharias could not decide if his intended audience was scholarly or laypeople. He would bounce from one easily accessible illustration to a more esoteric discussion. The overall tone of the book seemed somewhat schizophrenic. Also, the logical progression of his thought process seemed somewhat hidden as you work your way through the book. When you get to the final chapter he does a good job of explaining how all of his thoughts relate to one another and build upon each other, but during the course of each chapter the main point could sometimes seem lost in all the minutiae.Overall, I highly recommend this book. Even if you do not find yourself drawn to particularly philosophical topics, I believe it will be well worth the effort for you to work your way through Dr. Zacharias' discussion, if for no other reason than that the punchline can drastically change your life for the better.
