In 2006, while working in a full-time job, James Schramko wrote this in a notebook:
My goals: Create automated income so that I am independently wealthy and enjoy my life passionately.
Within three years, he’d built his own business and achieved those goals. At this point he set about helping his coaching clients do the same. Leveraging his knowledge and experience, they were able to make more money while reducing their work hours significantly.

Science and faith are often seen as being in opposition. In this book, award-winning sociologist Elaine Howard Ecklund questions this assumption based on research she has conducted over the past 15 years. She highlights the ways these two spheres point to universal human values, showing readers they don’t have to choose between science and Christianity.
Breathing fresh air into debates that have consisted of more opinions than data, Ecklund offers insights uncovered by her research and shares her own story of personal challenges and lessons. In the areas most rife with conflict–the origin of the universe, evolution, climate change, and genetic technology–readers will find fascinating points of convergence in 8 virtues of human existence: curiosity, doubt, humility, creativity, healing, awe, shalom, and gratitude.
