Resources

This little blog is a collection of journeys I’ve taken with certain questions. A close friend suggested that perhaps I should have a page of collected books and talks that have been helpful for me so far. What a great idea.

Speaking of which, there are probably going to be lot of disappointments in my list as it becomes evident how little I’ve read. There are far more resources out there than what I am listing. I’m trying to limit it to helpful books I have read in the last year or am in the process of reading. Here is the tip of the iceberg organized by topic:

As their site explains, “The Greek philosopher Socrates famously said that “the unexamined life is not worth living.” Taking this as a starting point, Eric Metaxas thought it would be valuable to create a forum that might encourage busy and successful professionals in thinking about the bigger questions in life. Thus Socrates In The City: Conversations on the Examined Life was born.”
