Leading Lives that Matter

New Edition of Leading Lives That Matter recently released

“We cannot decide what we should do without considering who we are and what we might become.” In their second edition of Leading Lives That Matter, editors Mark Schwehn and Dorothy Bass compile a wide range of texts—from ancient and contemporary literature, social commentary, and philosophy—related to questions of vital interest for those who are trying to decide what to do with their lives and what kind of human beings they hope to become. 

Leading Lives That Matter draws upon both religious and secular wisdom from writers like Toni Morrison, Kazuo Ishiguro, Denise Levertov, Malcolm Gladwell, Julia Alvarez, Alice Walker, Martin Luther King Jr., Pope Francis, and Chung Tzu, bringing these sources into conversation with one another.

This has been an principal text in LFP fellowship and grant programs. It has excellent resources for reading groups or individuals interested in exploring the topics around what it means to make a meaningful life.
