Table of Contents: What Is Life All About?

November 10, 2010 By: alanpg Category: Uncategorized

Many people ask me what is covered in the book, “What Is Life All About?” The book is 622 pages and the chapter titles and subtitles are provided below. The book could be one page in length in terms of answering the question of life’s purpose. However, to clarify, make simple and understandable the purpose of life, considerably more information is required. Much of that material exposes a long history of confusion, and the acceptance of literally hundreds of doctrines. The truth about life is very liberating and can bring substantial comfort and much of that comfort will come from the confidence you gain as everything fits together, perfectly fits together. Remove the confusion, philosophies, and religions that have us living in uncertainty and finally see the beauty and simplicity of life’s purpose.

Overview of book divisions

The Book is divided into six parts:

1. Beginning to Look at Life Differently
The title of chapter 1 is the theme behind the first fifteen chapters, namely, “Getting Prepared for the Truth.” The subjects vary but include topics regarding Creation, God, the Bible, faith, truth, religion, death, our personal mental games to satisfy or justify ourselves religiously and very importantly the kind of person that finds the truth and all are presented in a way that for most will be different from expected.


2. The Mess Called Religion—the Deceptions That Have So Many Under Control
As the result of a long history of fabrication involving most religions, it will be particularly important to study how these groups originated and then assess the validity of their doctrines. This part includes chapters 16 and 17.


3. Dealing with the Confusion by Helping You to Understand God
Chapters 18 to 39 clarifies, validates, and provides answers while in the process having the intent of helping to bring you to a better understanding of God as He has revealed himself.


4. What Is Life All About and How to Achieve Eternal Success
Chapters 40 to 45 begin with a chapter on existence that is seriously considering why we exist. We get very specific discussing God’s plan, and then discuss immorality, and in the midst of that topic, we look at how the Bible shaped the foundation of America at its beginning. In chapter 43, we make it very clear what life is all about. Chapter 44 answers what we need to do, and chapter 45 contains some final thoughts presented in a way to be encouraging yet continuing to emphasize the seriousness of wisely using our
short lifetime.


5. Appendices
The (eight) appendices could be at least one additional book or could be in the main body of most books. This subject matter ended up in the back of the book as an easy-way find to the material and to study by topic. The appendices all support the theme of the book but represent different material than in the (forty-five) chapters of the book.
