A point in life usually comes when we are forced to contemplate the value of our existence on earth. Using the book of Ecclesiastes as the foundation of discussion, the reader is encouraged to examine life for what it is, and whether it is indeed worth living. Stripping away all the crutches of life, our coping mechanisms and false comforts – the author simply asks, “is it worth it?” The same question is asked of those who live in depression, despair and hopelessness, “is life worth living?”
Examining our measures for success and what defines us, this book will wake up anyone from sleepwalking through life and help discover instead what happiness really is and can be. The book offers practical guidance on the pitfalls of worldly thinking and helps us focus on biblical truths that are foundational to the fruits of Christian living.
Is Life Worth Living? is ideal for study groups, with “A pause for thought” summary at the end of each short chapter for discussion.
