Riassunto: From the Foreword written by Coach John Wooden:
"In his latest book, Stew explores the soul-searching questions man has asked since he first walked upright and goes on to examine his relationship to a loving God. It is a deep and insightful look at what it means to be human and why we are here.
He reminds us that there is a wonderful purpose for our existence, but it cannot be fulfilled without a strong connection to Almighty God. Disconnected from Him, 'we are nothing more than dust.' But in concert with Him, we can achieve the greatness He intended for each of us.
To be sure, we often stumble. We can be weak, proud, arrogant, cruel, lazy, and unfeeling. But we can also be generous, strong, selfless, creative, kind, and loving. We only rise to our best selves when we seek God's help. Apart from Him, we are nothing."
