5.0 out of 5 starsUnique approach
Reviewed in the United States on June 14, 2019
As old and as new as the Gospel. This book faithfully applies ethical principles drawn from the New Testament and in an approach that is accessible for the modern age. The "Four Pillars" he uses--Prohibited, Prescribed, Prioritize, Providential--is an excellent method for applying the Gospel to the situations we face in modern life. He uses this approach both to illuminate the Bible and draw practical examples. Alot of wisdom packed into about 120, well-written, friendly pages. Not at all dry, obtuse, or remote. Highly recommended for the day-to-day Christian and those looking for enriched understanding of the New Testament and ethical principles.
An important book that will be useful to those who are searching for something more in their lives but may not know the direction to take. This book contains the wisdom of a lifetime along with classical teachings and presents them in a way that makes sense and is easy to understand. The information presented is universal and should be of interest to those of different cultures and beliefs.
Great book. Highly recommend for young people. Beautiful combination of common Sense, examples from computer science and anecdotes from old communist Prague. Prof. Rajlich proposes (not imposes) an ethics of life accessible to everyone, easy to understand and well founded in the Gospel. After devouring this book I'm still interested to hear more about the adventures of his father in the occupied Prague. May be next book could quench that thirst...
