Entrepreneurs of Life: Faith and the Venture of Purposeful Living
Entrepreneurs of Life explores the powerful human desire for purpose and significance, and serves as a fascinating guide through the annals of Western tradition to examine what calling is and how each of us can choose to respond. From the fiction of Tolstoy to the private letters of Beethoven, the readings in this study will help you approach your own life as the ultimately entrepreneurial activity.
"Too often we find ourselves drowning in a sea of choices. Entrepreneurs of Life offers a marvelous opportunity to discern how leaders in history have dealt with this challenge, and as a result, how a new generation of leaders can do it in our time."
– Gordon Macdonald
