About the Author

Reviews


"The exercise of thinking about Tolstoy, the Limbaugh Dittoheads, and Oprah together is engaging of the imagination, but it is also analytically fruitful, as it invites intriguing comparative questions Froese's book is a bold and engaging step in this direction, and, as such, it is also an invitation for more steps of its kind."--Graham Hill, Sociology of Religion


"The book is a strong treatise about the core spirituality that guides the direction of our family choices, career decisions, and the simple tasks of daily life." --Publishers Weekly


"Few books are as timely and necessary as Paul Froese's On Purpose: How We Create the Meaning of Life." --Patheos


"This text offers a pleasant and substantive reflection on the subject of creating meaning in
life."--PsycCRITIQUES: A Journal of the American Psychological Association


"This book seems to perform the impossible. It is both a splendid academic work and wholly relevant to any person, regardless of academic training or interest." --Reading Religion
