This book, edited by Meilaender, guides the reader in its different aspects. Because the chapters are by different authors from various backgrounds, having them all complied into an orderly book adds more value to it. It is up to the reader to formulate their final opinion on what work is to them, derived from Karl Marx, Rudyard Kipling, Aristotle, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, John Calvin, Karl Barth, William Shakespeare, Mark Twain,and Abraham Joshua Heschel. If that's not a diversity of opinions of life, I'm not sure what would be.
