Reviews - What do customers think about Heart Peace: Embracing Life's Adversities?
Great Book Nov 9, 2005
What really struck me about this book is its versatility. I liked the in-depth, comprehensive nature of the work that blends psychology with spirituality. As a resource, this book has much to offer. I found it to be a book for all emotional seasons of the human heart with its goal very clear: to offer encouragement, self-confidence and compassion for self and others. I found this to be an especially wise book. As a therapist, the author has a broad perspective that is nonjudgmental, inclusive and highly supportive. This book is a sound, practical and inspirational guide for anyone going through adversity of any kind. I highly recommend it.
Memorable, Helpful and Encouraging Oct 20, 2005
I highly recommend Adolfo Quezada's masterfully written book, Heart Peace: Embracing Life's Adversities. In the intro, he writes, "Life is a Tornado. It is a whirlwind that tosses and turns you...at the same time, at the center of it all, there is a peace that surpasses all understanding."
Holding a master's degree in journalism and counseling, Quezada writes that there was no darker time in his life than when his beloved son was killed. This book is written out of his personal journey, thereby bringing the authority and depth that only first hand experience can bring. However, this wise book goes beyond even that, to embrace the many kinds of suffering people have, making it universal in its message of hope.
Heart Peace is a gentle book that takes the reader by the hand and draws them into a fullness of understanding within their own unique hardship experience. Acting as a guide, it reminds us of truths we know in our hearts but often forget. Having also lost a child, I found Quezada's perspectives insightful, life-affirming and supportive. He addresses anxiety and fear of the unknown, teaching us that sometimes we can only control how we respond to the troubles, grief and bad things we experience. He inspires us to give purpose to our anxiety by making it manageable and useful.
An extensive, compassionate book filled with important phrases to underline, Quezada writes, "Our task is to take what is before us and break it down into bite size portions that we can chew and swallow without choking." In the excellent conclusion, he reminds us that nothing good comes from force, our strength lies in being truthful with ourselves and listening to the rhythm of God's heart. Anyone who is stressed out, going through loss or adversity of any kind will find this book an invaluable companion and resource of comfort, care and strength. It helped me in many ways, reminding me and anyone who reads it to focus on moving forward with courage, spontaneity and faith in the effectiveness of the tools God (and this book) provides.
