Reviews - What do customers think about A Pocket Guide to The Meaning of Life (Pocket Guide Series)?
Put it in your pocket! Dec 28, 2007
If any writer today can squeeze the meaning of life into a small 64 page booklet, the popular and prolific author Peter Kreeft can! The book is short, brief, almost laconic. One can throw it into the purse or even the pocket. And yet, the Pocket Guide to the Meaning of Life has it all: the truth of who we are, why we are here, where we are going, and how to get there.
The book is laid out in a simple Q&A format, displaying no more than 2 questions per page. Whenever he is able, Kreeft answers the questions with a single word or short phrase. Once in a while, a relevant, brief passage of the Bible is quoted. Sometimes, he answers the question posed by stating, "this is the way Jesus answered it", and proceeds then to quote from a Gospel writer. Saint Augustine is quoted a couple of times as well, and Saint John of the Cross and Gaudium et Spes once each.
This booklet will make a nice study aid for preparation for the sacrament of confirmation, but also beyond that-it would be helpful reading to just about anyone, in any stage of life!
Got teenagers? Oct 23, 2007
If you are raising teenagers (or there-abouts) then get this book. It is short and to the point which is exactly what Dr. Kreeft knew young people would need. This is not Peter Kreeft's usual philosophy book rather it is philosophy-lite to help young people know why they are here on earth. It is well worth putting in the Christmas stocking, or leaving on the dining room table or just giving to your son, daughter, niece or nephew. It's the very least we adults can do.
Vintage Kreeft, premium price Mar 30, 2007
This little booklet is packed with just what you'd expect from Peter Kreeft: memorable phrases, penetrating insight, and scores of references to Scripture and Church fathers. Think of it as a very brief Q&A catechism for the lightly-churched but genuinely-curious. The downside is its price. Seven dollars for what is essentially a 1000-word pamphlet is a bit rich. And since this is the sort of guide buyers would want to distribute to attendees of youth retreats or place in parish literature racks, Our Sunday Visitor ought to shave about $5 from the asking price to make bulk orders more feasible.
