Book Description

First published in 1966, this book looks at life and its purpose. It is made up of eighteen pieces by individuals from a wide range of backgrounds who discuss their thoughts and beliefs on the subject. Contributors come from varied disciplines including literature, theology, politics, journalism and science. Some affirm their faith in the human spirit and in life-enhancing activity, some, including a distinguished surgeon, see their lives in terms of service, or are more concerned with current social questions, and some focus on the importance of the individual. What I Believe is an intriguing text that becomes, as one reads it, a growing revelation of how men and women find the meaning of life.
