An Equal Joy: Reflections on God, Death and Belonging

Author(s): Catherine Lim
ISBN: 978 981 4771 79 5

In this collection of essays, award-winning author Catherine Lim undertakes a bold and intense exploration into the fear of death, the nature of religion and the question of who we are. Drawing on her own experiences and myriad influences — from the Taoist "Sky God" of her childhood and the Christian God Jesus of her adulthood to scientist Pascal and philosopher Socrates; from intimate conversations with close friends to the imagined world of fictional characters — Lim reflects on the beauty of both the natural world and the world of faith. In sharing her insights, Lim not only provokes us to reflect on the meaning of life but also encourages us to live as meaningful a life as possible.
