Liberal Learning as a Quest for Purpose

Liberal Learning as a Quest for Purpose

In a remarkable experiment lasting over a decade, a group of 88 independent campuses, ranging from comprehensive universities to intimate colleges, have demonstrated the value of an emerging educational agenda focused on meaning and purpose. These programs have shown that college can provide emerging adults with an understanding of themselves within today's insecure and highly competitive world that enhances their ability to develop the "grit" needed to create meaningful lives. By focusing on the exploration of vocation and its theological foundations, the programs have produced remarkable outcomes in enhanced student engagement in the learning process and more effective entry into adult life.Discernment of vocation provides for many students a synthetic and compelling focus for intellectual and practical exploration. Sustained by articulate reflection and grounded in communities of learning that include faculty as well as students, undergraduate life takes on new significance and urgency. Liberal Learning as a Quest for Purpose analyzes a series of successful efforts to reconfigure undergraduate education as a journey toward life purpose. Examining the experiences of students and faculty, William M. Sullivan reveals the concrete importance of this educational agenda for individu...

Purpose Quest: Passionately Pursuing Your Purpose

Purpose Quest: Passionately Pursuing Your Purpose

Most people search endlessly for their purpose but come up empty handed. Some people search for meaning in relationships. Others search for their purpose at work. Still others seek their true calling in good works. What they soon discover is that they get overwhelmed doing all kinds of 'good deeds' that they were not called to do. Without God at the core, their efforts are futile. The good news is that your Creator provided you with building blocks (foundation, framework, and structure) in the Bible that you can use to make sound decisions and choices; including: What you are supposed to do with your life. "Purpose Quest" will guide you through twelve biblically based building blocks that can be used to understand who you are and what you were created to do. It provides end-of-chapter prayer and challenges as well as a study guide that you can use alone, in a small group, or with a book club. This book, used in conjunction with the Bible, will enable you to discover and live God's purpose for your life. Andrea's insights, skills and knowledge gained from over 20 years in Corporate America and Church Servant Leadership culminate in this biblically based book that features the building blocks (foundation, framework, and structure) to get the life you've always dreamed about.

The INTP Quest: INTPs' Search for Their Core Self, Purpose, & Philosophy

The INTP Quest: INTPs' Search for Their Core Self, Purpose, & Philosophy

INTPs are equal parts thinker and seeker. While their status as nuanced and critical thinkers rarely goes unrecognized, their seeking side is often overlooked. This is largely due to the fact they do most of their seeking inwardly, that is, by way of thinking. Recognizing life’s brevity, INTPs strive to craft a life that is important, meaningful, and authentically reflects who they are. In so doing, they feel compelled to clarify their understanding of three key things: their core self, their purpose, and their philosophy / worldview. Only by clarifying these foundational matters can INTPs be sure they have done everything possible to optimize their lives. Unfortunately, the INTP quest is rarely simple or straightforward, and it often extends far longer than they anticipate. Plagued by doubt and uncertainty, some INTPs may worry that they may never find what they are looking for and that all their explorations will have been for naught. However, those who persist in their quest have good reason for hope. While their destination may not look quite as shiny or glorious as they originally imagined, it is nonetheless worth the wait, capable of furnishing them with an enduring sense of meaning and satisfaction. This book explores the deep existential concerns that INTPs strive to un...

The Quest for Kaitiakitanga: The Ancient Maori Secret from New Zealand that Could Save the Earth (Adventures with Purpose)

The Quest for Kaitiakitanga: The Ancient Maori Secret from New Zealand that Could Save the Earth (Adventures with Purpose)

Kaitiakitanga, an ancient Maori concept meaning “guardianship of the land,” has undergone a revival in New Zealand and is fueling an increasingly popular eco-movement. Structured by Richard Bangs as a grand adventure, this book looks at how the Maori way is becoming the modern way. Bangs’ expedition includes heli-hiking, ice-climbing, kayaking, and more as he travels through New Zealand’s stunning landscapes. Along the way, the author encounters threatened wildlife, massive trees that predate Christ, monumental glaciers, and the kinds of advances fostered by kaitiakitanga, from radically designed eco-lodges to paradigm-shifting native ventures.

Quest for the Sublime: Finding Nature's Secret in Switzerland (Adventures with Purpose)

Quest for the Sublime: Finding Nature's Secret in Switzerland (Adventures with Purpose)

In addition to being a picturesque setting for organized tours into the wild, Switzerland has long been considered the birthplace of adventure travel and the wellspring of eco-tourism. Byron, Shelly, Keats, and Wordsworth all traveled to Switzerland, and upon reaching the Swiss Alps the word they chose to describe what they saw was, not surprisingly, sublime. Here, Richard Bangs embarks upon a new adventure to discover what sublime truly meant to those early travelers and to know how the experiences of past poets and artists transformed the concept of travel. Along the way Bangs examines questions surrounding natural resources, finding answers in Switzerland that may serve as examples for the rest of the world.
