The Good Life
The Good Life is a great read. Colson conducts an exploration into what it means to live the good life. He begins with a retelling of the opening of the movie Saving Private Ryan. An old man hurries to see the grave of the officer who led the detail assigned to save him. The book continues with other moving stories that flow one after another, all aimed at identifying what it means to live the good life. Some stories are about lives wasted and others about lives well spent.
This is really a must read book. I’m not going to spoil it by going into lots of detail or the conclusions Colson reaches. I’ll let you do that for yourself.
I promise you two things—you will enjoy the book and it will make you take another look at your life to evaluate if you are living the good life.
