Against the oft-heard claims of a culture that denies the existence of human nature and places feelings and desires at the center of human existence, Dr. Willard insists that the purpose of human life is to love and serve others and to be loved and served by them.

He argues that, indeed, all things have a nature, and that a sufficient living out of one’s human nature comes only in relationship to God.
