I suggested this book to a friend who finally read it... rather reluctantly. It's now her favorite book. You will gain a lot of insight from reading this and really start spending more time considering how your life intertwines with the lives of the people you meet, if only in passing.

Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom: I read this in conjunction with The Problem of Pain by C.S. Lewis while taking a "God, Suffering, & Evil" in college. This book reminds me that we must cherish those that are important to us. We must ask them all of the questions that we can while they are still in our lives. It's about learning life’s greatest lesson through the death of a friend. It's about feeling a great passion for life. We must be ready for our time when we meet God.
