When events happen in daily life, do we discern the hand of God, providence, serendipity, or mere chance? Does everything happen for a reason or am I merely (un)lucky? Is there a grand plan or am I here to navigate life on my own? What was meant to b' or what occurred due to random events? Are dreams, the stars, or the wrinkles in my hands a window into what might be? Can we glimpse into the future? Is tragedy or happiness predetermined? For centuries, human beings have tried to make sense of daily life in the midst of the larger structure of the cosmos. Signs, Superstitions, and God's Plan is a mix of historical survey, headlines from the world, and popular culture. By drawing on recent events, modern cinema, the classical world of Greece and Rome, biblical sources, and more, the reader is ushered into a gripping, thought-provoking analysis of human experience and our shared quest to find meaning. What results is a Copernican revolution in thinking about the human condition. The reader should be prepared to reframe one's understanding of how we make sense of reality and to engage in a more profound call to personal agency. +
