Where do we find value and purpose in a world riven by injustice and conflict? What is it that makes life meaningful and cherishable? Is there any more to life than sex and shopping - and, if so, what is it? We've all loved and lost, we've all known frustration and fulfilment. Drawing on these experiences in his own life and in contemporary literature and film, Alex Wright shows how through stories and memories we can sometimes catch a glimpse of the mysteries and wonders of the universe. He explores the idea that secular accounts of purpose and value may have more authentic things to say about life's meaning than `religious' alternatives. Meanings of Life is a life-affirming and richly-entertaining work of spirituality that will stimulate and delight anyone - whether believer or unbeliever - who has ever stopped to ask `what it all means'.
