Heroic Living: Discover Your Purpose and Change the World

Heroic Living: Discover Your Purpose and Change the World




author/Chris Lowney

As a former Jesuit and a former investment banker, Lowney effectively merges astute business and spiritual wisdom to provide the necessary tools for making long-term life changes that guide Christians to an authentic, purposeful, and deeply meaningful life.

There's a life that's better than the life you've imagined . . .

You wake up one morning and realize that the life you've dreamed of has eluded you. You sense that something better--something bigger--is waiting out there for you, but you can't quite put your finger on it. You know that fame and fortune aren't the answers to true satisfaction in life . . . but, then, what is? The answer lies in discovering and following your "mighty purpose" for life--a reason for living that is so much bigger than yourself that it transforms you, your relationships, and the world as a result.

In Heroic Living, best-selling author and former investment banker Chris Lowney combines his business expertise with proven practices of Ignatian spirituality to help each of us--regardless of calling, career, or current situation--discover a mighty purpose and develop a personal life strategy to achieve it. By merging astute business knowledge and spiritual wisdom, Lowney provides the tools needed to make practical, long-term life changes that move us away from our fractured, compartmentalized lives and toward the satisfaction and wholeness that each of us desires so deeply.

"Chris Lowney's most recent book is a substantive blend of 'why' and 'how' to construct a life of purpose and integrity amidst the exigencies and complexities of our fast-paced daily lives."
--Stephen A. Privett, SJ, President, University of San Francisco
