Overview Offering practical suggestions for focusing on the meaning and purpose God has for each individual, "Making Peace with Reality" presents welcomed solutions to surviving the chaotic storms of life. (Christian Religion)
Publishers Description Chaos and overwhelming pressure can push us to confront the big questions of life: Are we living with meaning? Are we using our time well? Is it possible to live a life without regret? Navigator author Jerry White offers practical suggestions for focusing on the purpose God has for each of us. He deals with real-life issues--grief, aging, marriage, stress, parenting, tragedy--and presents welcome solutions to surviving the chaotic storm swirling around us and inside us.
From Publishers Weekly For a book that the author says has been 40 years in the making, one might
expect a more orderly approach to helping readers disarm the all-powerful foe
of chaotic living. As president and CEO of the evangelical Christian group the
Navigators, White (Dangers Men Face) understands how a high-profile position
contains many temptations to give into the "chaotic" rather than make prudent
career and lifestyle decisions, thereby ensuring personal peace. As no one can
escape the world's chaos, he argues that it is essential to learn to cope with
reality. He offers plausible solutions for developing personal perseverance,
defined as qualities of endurance, persistence, tenacity, steadfastness and
resolve. White asserts that one's personality, health, age and previous life
experiences all come into play when one is called to make courageous decisions
to disengage from life's mounting pressures. White's educational background
in electrical engineering/astronautics and his former position as mission
controller at Cape Canaveral may explain his penchant for list-making; this
reads more like an extended outline than a sustained book. Countless
power-punches of biblical wisdom get lost amid the frequent subheadings and
in-chapter divisions, diminishing White's message and impact. Learning to make
adjustments along life's road is an important lesson; it is regrettable that
this essential tool is rendered almost powerless by its own lack of focus.
