Abstract:

"How should we live? What kind of people should we be? What meaning is there in our day-to-day existence? What are the truly important things? We live in turbulent times. Torrents of information, fractured families, and politically correct rhetoric color our understanding of ourselves, each other, and the world. We are sorely in need of moral compasses. In his timely and provocative work, Things That Count, ethicist and theologian Gilbert Meilaender provides us with just such a guide." "Whether explicating When Harry Met Sally or John Updike's fiction, meditating on the works of C. S. Lewis or St. Augustine, or presenting a different look at such controversial issues as cloning and homosexuality, Meilaender provides an ethic that ignores neither our humanity nor our thirst for rectitude."--BOOK JACKET.
