Item description for Rising Above the Violence by BJ Phillips...

We can choose to be proactive or reactive in solving our conflicts with the people we interact with each day. My purpose in writing this book is to help the people in this country realize that we need to prevent violence, not just react to it. Violence is permeating the lives of all people living in America today. I grew up in a home that was sometimes violent, sometimes angry, and sometimes hostile, but in our own way we were striving to find a better way to live our lives and love one another.Most families in our society today are in the same situation. I believe that God brought me through the many different trials that I share in this book so that I could identify with many of the hurts that we all experience in life. If I had not experienced these trials, how could I effectively counsel with those who are going through them?

Reviews - What do customers think about Rising Above the Violence?

A Book For Soul-Searching  Sep 13, 2003
Why do we live in such a violent society, the author asks, and what can we do about it? She begins with her own life-story and family background, It is a deeply moving, often shocking account of abuse, gratuitous violence, alcoholism, and the struggle for a better life. This first chapter sets the tone for the rest of the book, in which she explores the roots of our violent culture.

Author Phillips does not offer any quick fixes, but she is unsparing in her critique of our materialistic society. We must change our priorities, she says, and give up the fruitless struggle for power and control. She has done a prodigious amount of research for the book, delving deeply into the fields of sociology, psychology, philosophy, child development and comparative religion in laying out her case. The question is asked in many different ways: what are your true priorities? Until we get our priorities straight and turn from the blind pursuit of more and better stuff...well, you get the picture.

This is a remarkable book, but it is not for everyone. It is definitely not light reading. If you are looking for a book that will cause some soul-searching, that might make you uncomfortable, this one is definitely worth your time. Reviewed by Louis N. Gruber.

A Must Read for Changing/Understanding the Violence  Jul 31, 2003
A Must Read for Young Adults, Parents, Teachers, and Everyone Wanting to Learn How to Truly Change Our Violent Society
RISING ABOVE THE VIOLENCE speaks to all of us: the young adult just emerging on the road to life and the well-traveled adult who's just trying to sort it all out. The content of the text is two-fold: a narrative of the author's life at the start of the book and then an explanation/description of the components of how we can rising above the anger and hurt we all face. As B.J. Phillips opens her life to us, we read without pausing in utter awe and almost unbelief of her triumphs through God's Grace of what would seem to be unsurmountable trials and difficulties. Through her life we find evidence and confirmation of the promises of God. And, then through reading the remainder of the book, we are given hope that there truly is a way to change ourselves and the lives of others. A great, easy-to-read text for young parents, teachers, and just anybody wanting to 'see the light' in this society of darkness and violence.
