Publisher's Summary

Pastor and best-selling author Wayne Muller presents an outline for introspection and guidance in a classical tradition: four simple questions that go straight to the heart of our common search for greater meaning in life.

For thousands of years, these questions - which span all major spiritual traditions - have served as beacons for spiritual seekers: Who am I? What do I love? How shall I live knowing I will die? What is my gift to the family of the Earth? As he guides us through these questions, Muller weaves poetry with true stories of love, courage, grief, and transformation in order to show how beauty and wisdom come to us at unexpected times.

Wherever we find suffering and loss, Muller teaches, we can also find perfection and truth. Complete with exercises and practices, How, Then, Shall We Live? is a modern classic on the examined life from the author of the national best seller Legacy of the Heart: The Spiritual Advantages of a Painful Childhood.

I really enjoyed this book.

If you're ever stuck in the rut of, "why me?", this is a good book to read. The title itself can easily be the subject of hours of discussion. The book breaks things down into 4 sections/questions. As you listen, you will feel a sense of purpose and direction. I really enjoyed the author reading it as it has some personal stories that you can tell he is re-living as he speaks.

It's an easy listen after the first 30 minutes. I highly recommend for anyone who is searching for their purpose or needs a slight push to get out of their own way.
