Dr. Sproul’s classic gets to the heart of humanity’s search for personal worth. As he sheds light on daily obstacles to dignity—in home, school, hospital, prison, church, and workplace—Dr. Sproul points us to new ways of loving and serving one another.


“As Dr. Sproul unpacks the powerful and biblical axiom of human dignity, he shows the reader how to effectively ascribe life-worth to the people we encounter every day. In an age of identity politics where the weak and vulnerable are forgotten, The Hunger for Significance is a must-read!”

—Joni Eareckson Tada, Founder, Joni and Friends International Disability Center 

“This is classic R.C. Sproul. It is precisely the book the church needs to help us to rightly grasp the dignity and purpose of each and every human being, all image bearers of our holy, loving, and gracious God.” 

—Burk Parsons, Senior Pastor, Saint Andrew’s Chapel, Sanford, Florida 

“In this penetrating analysis, R.C. Sproul explores our search for meaning in a variety of circumstances and places. We were created in God’s image to live in communion with our Creator and under his Lordship. Sproul uses his keen mind to teach us how and why we all want our lives to count. This book is a must-read for everyone: pastors, church leaders, and laypeople.”

—Miguel Núñez, Pastor Titular, Iglesia Bautista Internacional

“It takes someone who so profoundly wrestled with the question Who is God? to help us so clearly and cogently with the question Who am I? In our current moment of identity confusion, chaos, and crisis, this new edition is urgently needed. With biblical wisdom, theological maturity, and generous anecdotes, Dr. Sproul covers every aspect of our lives, painting the portrait of true human dignity.”

—Stephen J. Nichols, President, Reformation Bible College
