In our hearts, we know that every event in our lives is providential and that each of us plays a critical role in the unfolding of the story God has written. We believe that God's will is anchored deep within our soul, and so too is the desire to know it and to live it. In these pages, acclaimed Catholic author Anthony Esolen claims that the story of your life has already been written and can be discovered by considering the life and person of Jesus. Only in God does the world possess meaning, and therefore only in relation to God are our lives genuine stories. Here, Esolen offers a brilliant reflection in ways that only he can upon what it means for any of us, and for all of us together, to dwell in a world of stories. And he shows how we can take events in the life of Christ as the touchstone for all that happens to us on our journey from time to eternity. Indeed, this book will finally awaken in you the unshakable confidence that despite even the tragic stories of this life, the good things you've known and loved are not gone forever: all that is lost will be found; all will be restored; all will be perfected. Truly, there will be a new heaven and a new earth (Rev 21:1). Like the star that led the Magi to Jesus, the wisdom in these pages will lead you to Christ. It will instill in you hope that increases every step of your way.
