Product description

If your life was on fire, what would be the one thing you save?

Progressive minister and psychotherapist Erik Kolbell asks that question of 13 remarkable and unique individuals. The answers are provided by such notable people as journalist Jane Pauley, actor Alan Alda, and jazz impresario Regina Carter, as well as Brenda Berkman, a New York City firefighter who responded to the World Trade Center attacks of 9/11, and Don Lange, a U. S. Veteran severely injured in the Iraq War. The insights of these and other ordinary people put into extraordinary situations, will help all of us consider what it is that we value most in life.

His goal, Kolbell says, is not to examine the worth of each of these things. "What matters is that for all of the sham and artifice that can make cynics of us all, there are things, solid things, that compel us onward."
