Abstract/Summary

The Foolish things of the world is autobiographical fiction about the author's search for existential meaning. She traces her meandering quest through 10 chapters that detail experiences from childhood to adulthood and how these experiences led her to faith, freedom, and fulfilment in the Lord Jesus Christ of the Bible. She intertwines her memories with stories of individuals who have gone on their own journeys. The Foolish things of the world is an example of creative nonfiction that dramatizes, amplifies, and clarifies a late twentieth century problematic that besets the human species by providing answers from the Christian spiritual perspective.
