The Voice of the Heart Sep 8, 2008
This is the best and most amazing book I have ever read. We are going to be reading it for our book club. I am so thrilled to have found this gem and want to thank Chip for this insightful biblical perspective on our god-given emotions. He has changed my thinking about the feelings I considered negative. All eight emotions are a gift of God: hurt, loneliness, sadness, anger, fear, shame, guilt and gladness. Dr. Frattaroli was the first author I had read to mention that pain is good - it leads us to healing. Now Chip takes it a step further to show how all the emotions are good - they lead us to change our path to get to gladness. He does a great job at showing how each emotion has a potential positive or negative result. The point really is to use the emotions to get the positive result and avoid the negative. Eye-opening and insightful!
Feelings are just feelings...and they are my TRUTH!!! Jul 19, 2006
To live life more fully has been my desire ever since I cognitively looked at myself and asked, "What is God's plan for me?" This book, using the "spiritual root system", simply lays out a plan for healthy living. I have listened to the CD that is a "supplement" to the book, over and over,it's great. I respectfully agree with the 8 feelings mentioned in the book, because it fits ("..more like eyesight and thirst than they are like morality and behavior). Thanks Chip for putting into such easy to understand words information that daily saves my life. Self-help with a solution of God-help...a relationship with my Heavenly Father through feeling my feelings, telling the truth, and trusting He will take care of me, as I strive to live life more fully.

I found this book to be refreshing and inspiring. As I process the content, I know that I will be called up to a fuller life. Unlike the reviewer, Kool Aid, I found it to be intellectually stimulating and not too difficult to follow. Yes, truths were presented but at a level I could digest and absorb. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants a deeper fuller life.
GREAT BOOK Jan 10, 2004
I just wanted to quickly respond to a previous review of this book. If there is such a thing truth, then that 'truth' is unalterable. The reviewer writes, ' The Voice of the Heart is not for Buddhists, Hindus, Muslims, Taoists, Mystics or any other group that may hold to a different view of how the Universe is "put together" and how it works. Therefore, it cannot be the vessel containing the "unalterable truth" that the author proclaims.
It seems to me that this particular viewer has a skewed view of what truth is, since if it doesn't agree with every other religious point of view, according to the reviewer, then it is thus does not contain `unalterable truths'. Does it follow that any viewpoint that doesn't agree with all other viewpoints is thus not truth? This book is a fantastic introduction into the nature of the heart, and I highly recommend it for anyone curious and seeking.
I feel, therefore I am... Apr 17, 2003
This book does a very good job of explaining emotions simply. I was taught that feelings were something I must have under control, that to have feelings about anything was to be weak. Males who showed emotions were sissy's. This author helped me to continue to believe that my feelings are God-given and "okay." They help me to better understand and express what I need. I have spent much of my life ignoring my feelings and continually hurting myself and others. This book helped explain how emotions are the most important information I have in understanding my life experience. It also helped me realize that feelings are the most important thing I can share with my family and friends.
