Summary: "If your life was on fire, what would be the one thing you save? Psychotherapist and pastor Erik Kolbell asks that question of 13 remarkable and unique individuals. The answers 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."--from cover, page [4].
