Passage to Wisdom

"In this video, John shares some wisdom that you will not likely get from anyone else. Your parents won't tell you this, your teacher won't tell you this. Your coach won't tell you this. Your boss will not tell you this. Culture will not tell you this either. John Ortberg discusses one of his favorite books, Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoyevsky and he is pulling relevant truths from it that we can apply in our every day. Crime and Punishment catapulted Dostoyevsky to the forefront of Russian writers and into the ranks of the world's greatest novelists, one of the supreme masterpieces of world literature. Drawing upon experiences from his own prison days, the author recounts in feverish, compelling tones the story of Raskolnikov, an impoverished student tormented by his own nihilism, and the struggle between good and evil. Title: Ordinary People Verse: 'For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the faith God has distributed to each of you.' - Romans 12:3" from video introduction.
