Given Life

Insightful thoughts and inspirational writing

Michael Lando
Inspiration for life from the Given Life

A truly inspirational read that helps bring perspective. In a time when ethics and morality seem to be in absentia Wendell Berry and the Given Life makes us question what really is important, and set a proper course for our life.

Difficult to understand.

Was expecting a simpler form of the creation theology. It was okay and gave me some insight but was a bit heavy reading for me.
