Description
(2013 Nautilus Awards Silver Winner for an Ecology/Environment Book) What is the purpose of life on Earth? The author of The American Soul, Lost Christianity, and Money and the Meaning of Life, philosopher Jacob Needleman here frames man's role on the planet in a new way, revealing how the care and maintenance of our world is something vital and basic to our existence as authentic human beings. In some of his most deeply affecting writing, Needleman draws on his childhood experiences with a terminally ill friend whose impending death forced both boys to face questions of the meaning of existence at an early age. The conclusions that he reaches will give all of us a new sense of the purpose of our lives and the planet we live on.

"For nearly four decades Jacob Needleman has confronted the central questions of our era in light of the vision that lies at the root of the world's great spiritual traditions. Needleman's work clarifies: it takes topics that exist in disparate threads throughout our culture—new religions, esoteric Christianity, the founding mythos of America—and frames them in a manner both sensible and deeply questioning."—Parabola
