I find the analogy being used - the family pet - very interesting and apropo because everyone loves the dog, right?

Is this the first of a series?

This book

This book is an eye opener. At a time when I was thinking about suicide, I knew I couldn't becuase I wondered who would take care of my grandchild. I also worried about what would happen to my cats.

What is that quote - Everybody needs someone to love, something to do, and something to hope for. That is a realy mangled quote.

"I applaud your pursuit but am saddened by your sacrificial commitment, the waste of your brief life on the trivial made crucial, the minor made major, the marginal made essential."

That statement really struck home. What can I say afer that?

You may be interested in reading this book if you are suicidal, interested in blowing up an airplane or some such thing. Or if you like books where you wonder if the author will ever get to the point.

Otherwise, I'd recommend "Men's Search for Meaning" by Victor Frankl as a more insightful and interesting book about how much difference having a purpose or finding a meaning for your life can make. (The author of this bookclub selection even cites Frankl!)

And if you want to read in depth about what your real purpose in life is, read "The Purpose Driven Life" by Rick Warren.

I was hoping that this book may be a good complement to the two books I've mentioned above, but have been disappointed.

Soul Passion (Good News)

Hi! I am a new member. I just read Part 5 of 5 of Soul Passion. For years, I have been complaining to friends, that my life (though busy), seemed meaningless. Work, shopping, etc. It was just not enough. I am going to read this book, because I can relate to the "emptiness" of chasing unimportant, ineffectual dreams. I want more out of my life, a sense of fulfillment, a sense of true accomplishment. I think this book may be able to help. I also like the way the author writes.
