Description: With his unique blend of profundity, sensitivity, learning, and humor, Rabbi Abraham J. Twerski, M.D. explores some of the core questions that engage thinking, mature people:
What is my function in life? How can I relate to my soul while continuing to nurture my body? How can I turn "meaning" into a practical, satisfying reality, instead of a fluffy cliche?
In this book, Rabbi Twerski is not dealing with "problems." He is sitting down with his readers and having a heart-to-heart discussion on how to make life more meaningful. He is an acknowledged master of the entertaining story and down-to-earth common sense. His real world advice and guidance have helped tens of thousands of people enrich their lives.
The contemporary media is filled with dialogue of how people - even very successful ones - complain about a spiritual or emotional vacuum that prevents life from being as full and happy as it should and could be. The Torah has the answers. As a world-renowned psychiatrist, Rabbi Twerski shows us how the Torah speaks to modern man in terms relevant to today's complicated world.
Rabbi Twerski has a lifetime of achievement and countless salvaged lives and families to his credit. In Dearer Than Life, he brings his career to a new plateau of public service.
