        You do not have to be a Christian to utilize this book.  Gomes held court for decades at The Harvard Memorial Church, and each Sunday before preaching he would make clear that both the believers and the non-believers were equally welcome.  And he really meant it—and not in a way that he was intending to pull the non-believing side over to the believing side.  Harvard is a worldly place filled with people in powerful influence positions in all facets of society.  Science, medicine, law, economics, and government are just a few places Harvard faculty, alumni, and students have (or would ultimately have) great influential sway. Gomes knew that his mission was to help these complex, brilliant, ego-maniacs become sane, happy people (who in turn would help create a sane, happy world).  Being a human can be a deeply rewarding experience, and this book is a great entry point in learning how to live such a life.
