Video: Michael Alexander on the Origins of Making Peace with the Universe

The marvel of Michael Scott Alexander’s book is that he has transformed his own search into a discovery of the wisdom of the ages. Erudite and deeply personal, this book captures the pain of losing faith and the joy of rediscovering a deeper meaning.
