Summary "An award-winning USA Today columnist makes the case for how a Jesus freed from religion and politics meets the need for meaning and purpose in secular America, "
What gives a life meaning? What constitutes a life well led? Krattenmaker believes inspiration might best be found in the figure of Jesus-- not only as a good example and teacher, but Jesus as the primary guide for one's life. He shows that in Jesus, nonreligious people like himself can find unique and compelling wisdom on how to honor the humanity in ourselves and others, how to build more peaceful lives, how generosity can help people and communities create more abundance, how to break free from self-defeating behaviors, and how to tip the scales toward justice.
