Live the epic adventure that may foreshadow world headlines!
Settled is more than a novel about Israel and the Jews. It sets its sights higher to examine how a lone individual can make a difference. In our times of meaning crises and life purpose difficulties, with untold millions going through the motions and wondering why there isn't more to life, Settled provides a blueprint for individual engagement. It announces to listeners, maybe creating a second Israel isn't among your important life purposes but what is? On the one hand Settled is an odyssey of adventure, chronicling the creation of a second Israel. At the same time it is a novel of life purpose and meaning. Settled happens to be about Israel and the Jews but it is more fundamentally about how we can live in the 21st century, making our own meaning and deciding on our own life purposes. If this genre has not existed before, it does now: Settled is a shining star in the genre of life-purpose literature.
