This volume of "Is It Possible to Live this Way", a translation of Luigi Giussani's "Si Puo Vivere Cosi?", addresses the virtue of charity. A compilation of Giussani's conversations with young people who have chosen the path of the consecrated life in the Church - that is, have chosen to live their lives in the world according to the 'evangelical counsels' of poverty, chastity, and obedience - it proposes an unusual yet reasonable approach to living as a Christian. As in all his works, Giussani encourages young people to be serious about their own existence and loyal to their experience. The conversations reported here are fascinating and insightful, providing support for a way of life that today is frequently questioned, rejected, or censured.
