Leading a life of 'superclarity'

Are you leading a conventional life—or is it "high definition"? You're wondering how to know the difference? Author Ed Young, senior pastor of Fellowship Church in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area, explains in his latest book, High Definition Living: Bringing Clarity to Your Life's Mission: "HDTV [high-definition television] screens have many more lines of resolution than conventional television screens. These hundreds of lines of resolution ... enhance the quality of the picture far beyond what was previously possible. The ... technology of both the HDTV and the high-definition broadcast signal gives a whole new dimension to the television-watching experience. ... HDTV has 'superclarity'" (p. 7).

Writing from a Christian perspective, Young suggests that everyone—not just pastors, politicians, and movers and shakers in public life—can lead "high-definition lives," and be the leaders that God intends them to be in their families, communities, and churches. He writes: "[Leading a high-definition life] means we have a clear sense of purpose and life that reflects Christ's calling on our lives, both at a distance and up close" (p. 8).
