Summary
This book contains a series of passages that illustrates different aspects of usefulness: how all of creation -- as an interconnected web spun from divine love and wisdom -- is designed to serve useful functions and how that same love and wisdom can lead us to express usefulness in our own life...Following each passage [is] the core idea expressed in that passage and a short description of what it entails, as well as questions for reflection that are intended to help illustrate how that concept can be directly and meaningfully applied to daily life. -- from page viii
