Harvard Christian Alumni Society
On Tuesday February 8, 2022 we had the privilege of hosting HBS and K-School Professor Arthur Brooks, economist, thought leader, and New York Times best-selling author. Thank you to all who joined us from across five continents to preview his 12th book, From Strength to Strength: Finding Success, Happiness, and Deep Purpose in the Second Half of life, which became an instant #1 New York Times Bestseller upon launching on Feb. 15. Drawing upon social science, philosophy, biography, theology, and interviews, the book offers an evidence-based and spiritually uplifting action plan for finding and cultivating meaning, purpose, and impact, thereby right-sizing our lives in ways that conduce increased joy and fulfillment. This conversation was moderated by HCAS board member Oriana Li Halevy.
