Your Question May Suggest Its Own Answer.

In Piers Anthony’s fantasy novel A Spell for Chameleon, a character knows just what to say. When a manticora (body of a lion, head of a man, wings of a dragon, tail of a scorpion) asks the Good Magician Humfrey whether he has a soul, the magician answers,  “Only those who possess souls are concerned about them.” Which seems obviously true. To ask the question is to answer it. What do you think — does the fact that you’re concerned about something suggest the answer to your question? If you want to learn more about my book The Happiness Project:

  • Watch the one-minute book video
  • Request the one-page discussion guide or spiritual discussion guide
  • Listen to a sample of the audiobook (that’s me, reading from the Introduction)
