All of us will go through moments when we are forced to face up to life’s big questions. For some it is the reality of death – watching tragedies unfold around us. For others it is the wonder of life – marvelling at the birth of a baby, or the spectacle of a sunset. These moments provoke questions – about life and value, identity and meaning, society and the environment, love and relationships, justice and freedom, despair and hope.
In Making Sense of Life, Michael Ots honestly and carefully examines the questions that we all have. He unravels our desires and our dilemmas and makes the case that the Christian faith really does make the best sense of the things that matter most.
Honest, refreshing, engaging, and powerful – if you're genuinely interested in making sense of life's deepest questions, this book is a great place to start.

In his latest book, Making Sense of Life, Michael Ots weaves together a compelling case for the Christian faith pointing us in the right direction to find true purpose and meaning. I highly recommend reading this book and sharing it with others.

Here is a compelling vision for life that is bold and bright. It's bold in the breadth of its scope—engaging the great issues of our times and our hearts. It's bright in drawing us back continually to its radiant centre, Jesus Christ. With Making Sense of Life we look again at the world through the lens of Christ, and what we see sparkles with goodness, truth and beauty.

Michael Ots has spent 20 years speaking and listening on university campuses across Britain and Europe. He knows what the big questions of life are, and if you turn to the contents page I'm certain you'll find at least three chapter headings which deal with subjects that you find both beckoning and bewildering. The chapters themselves are full of wisdom, illustration and breadth, which did not disappoint. I thoroughly recommend this most timely book, as we all try and make sense of a post-COVID world.
