Road Trip Across the USA. May 26, 2003
Bruce Bickel and Stan Jantz are two middle-aged men and best friends who take a road trip across the United States for one purpose, to find out what Americans think the meaning of life is. The duo visited eleven major cities and found that each place had its own theme, its own identity. These themes helped Bruce and Stan decide on particular people they wanted to talk with and provide a framework for which the book is written around.
But don't get the wrong impression. Bruce and Stan aren't serious philosophers on an epic quest. No, they are basically just two normal Christian men with a great gift of comedy. The book is full of more humorous insights than serious ones and it is clear that these two gentlemen know life is a comedy and not a tragedy.
SEARCH FOR THE MEANING OF LIFE is entertaining, full of insights, and easy to read. It also has lots of quirky little facts about the various places they visited. It's part travel book, part philosophy treatise, part humor book. Combined together it makes for one highly enjoyable read.
Road trip extraordinaire! Aug 26, 2001
I picked this up and couldn't put it down. Bruce and Stan are two middle aged men who talked their wives into letting them tool around the country on their own for nearly four months. They start in Boston and work their way west. Taking themes from the Old Testament Existentialist in Ecclesiastes, they find his themes echoed in the various cities they visit. I laughed in agreement with most of their discoveries. I preached about and read from some of their book on Sunday morning and three people wanted the book (this is very rare!) I am glad I bought it, read it, and preached some from it! I look forward to reading other books in their series.
Entertaining Read! Jun 22, 2001
Bruce and Stan really shed some insight on the meaning of life in a delightful way. Not only do they share some of the stories they heard along the way, but they give interesting facts and funny stories in the different cities that they visited which I particularly enjoyed. If you're looking for something fun and insightful, you definitely have to pick this one up!
A great read! May 17, 2001
My husband and I are both reading it and laughing out loud! We find it especially enjoyable because we took a similar road trip a few summers ago. You do not have to have taken a cross country road trip though to enjoy this book. It is comical, thought provoking and soul stirring.Buy it today!
