What is a "whole" and "good" life?

Although the abundant love of God is at the center of all life, we live in a time when few are sure how to truly live. What makes for a “good” life and what constitutes “enough”? The book On Our Way: Christian Practices for Living a Whole Life, edited by Dorothy C. Bass and Susan R. Briehl, seeks to address these enduring human questions with wisdom of the Christian tradition that can be embraced with our bodies and daily shaped with our hands, says Bass. In a 5-minute introductory video housed on the website of The Valparaiso Project on the Education and Formation of People in Faith, Bass invites viewers to explore a way of life that is good for the human spirit, for others, and for the world. The Valparaiso Project is an initiative that promotes 12 key Christian practices that incarnate the Christian faith as a way to feed the spiritual hunger of contemporary seekers. A downloadable PDF-formatted discussion guide accompanies the video, which makes an excellent orientation for a study group.
