Summary
"In this "letter" to the next generation, Wogaman, a pastor, ethicist, and grandfather draws on a wealth of experience to share what truly matters. Today's young people yearn for authenticity and truth. However, the important aspects of truth, character, politics, community, family, education, religion, and vocation can get muddled by our cultural experiences. This book offers the opportunity to learn something from an older generation's experience of what matters--and about what doesn't matter much. What Matters addresses our broader cultural issues in the twenty-first century world. Explore why many young people have become disillusioned, even cynical, about major aspects of contemporary life. Wrestle with why is it hard to accept religious assumptions that were simply taken for granted in an earlier era. Contemplate the difficulty of seeing beyond the self-serving of many politicians. Come to appreciate why religious, political, economic, and educational institutions still matter. By tackling our tough questions about today's world, we can come to better understand what's truly worth believing in, and how our decisions and actions build a life that matters" --
