It is easy to hate or even deny our limitations, but despite our greatest efforts, there are things we cannot change. In The Consolations of Imperfection, Donald McCullough explains that everyone lives out a particular story, and the very limitations that frustrate us may also be freeing us toward new growth. An aging body, for example, reminds us of the transcendent power of the human spirit. Broken relationships remind us that love is a gift, not an obligation, and death is the beginning of something greater, not the end of everything. Weaving anecdotes and inspiring stories into this well-written book, McCullough covers topics ranging from limitations on the body, senses, and knowledge to limitations on moral goodness, spirituality, and time. If you are looking for encouragement and a better way to approach life's inevitable limits, you'll enjoy this witty and insightful book. Book jacket.
