Do you often ask the question "What is my purpose in life?" Rich with black-and-white photography, powerful stories, and life-changing reflections from the book of Ecclesiastes, We Go On, by pastor and entrepreneur John Onwuchekwa calls you to find the true answer to the question: Why am I here?

In a world that encourages us to find meaning in temporary things, we long to know that who we are makes a difference after we're gone. This hope-filled exploration of this biblical book of wisdom turns our attention to what our true purpose is and how to let that purpose shape our relationships, career, and life choices. Along with biblical insights, John Onwuchekwa weaves together meaningful challenges that even from difficult beginnings, we can continue to trust God's path.

In this book, you'll discover a more meaningful, fulfilling life as you explore themes such as:

  • work, wealth, and power
  • sexuality, social relationships, and justice
  • religion and family

Inspiring black-and-white photography paired with a modern cover make this a perfect gift to give to men and women for holidays, graduations, birthdays, new jobs, or to anyone seeking a deeper relationship with God. We Go On will help men and women:

  • experience deeper peace in a changing world
  • see biblical imagery in a fresh way
  • persevere through difficult circumstances
  • find new motivation for living with intention

This unique book reminds you that deeper purpose is available as you look beyond your circumstances and find meaning in the God who never changes.
