The friendly, English-speaking extraterrestrial you run into outside your house is asking you to recommend the one book, movie, or song that explains what humans are all about. What do you pick?
It tells the good, the bad, and everything in between. It tells of what was, what is, and what is to come. It tells of sacrifice, greed, rich, poor, war, peace, famine and feast. It tells of families, singles, married, children, grandchildren, and those yet to be. It tells of our Creator, our Savior, and those to spread the word. It tells of cities and towns and all the beauty that surrounds us.
No greater book in my opinion to tell you what we are all about.
