For all who inhabit a body and wonder about its place in the universe.

In Loving What Doesn't Last: An Adoration of the Body, Christina Kukuk reminds us that what matters most are things don't last forever. We find faith, hope, and love in and the string of endings and beginnings that make a life: a mother who plants an orchard in her son's memory, a girl's struggle with food scarcity, an adolescent awakening to infatuation at summer camp, and a woman waiting hours for her lover's recovery on a hospital's transplant floor. In every fleeting moment from the first pangs of birth to our last breath, God is in all of it.
