Reviews - What do customers think about Don't Throw Away Tomorrow: Living God's Dream for Your Life?
A Gifted Motivator Continues to Inspire May 2, 2006
Dr. Schuller has been an inspiration to me for years and while this book repeats some of his earlier works, I still find it inspiring and I'm glad he continues to provide excellent mental nutrition for us to feed on. I love hearing about how God provided when he moved to California with $500 and a dream. Of particular interest in this book is the discussion of the scientific study of intuition. He tells us..."scientists are now beginning to recognize the existence and importance to our overall health of 'spirit.'" He uses the term "theosomatic" to describe that we're body, mind, and spirit. This contrasts with the "somatic" approach that looks at body and "psychosomatic" that views body and mind.
Dr. Schuller has a chapter on contractions. He explains how we're faced with realities that seem to be in conflict with each other. He concludes that section that talking about the ultimate contraction, i.e., life and death. "I put my trust in one person, Jesus Christ, who combines this ultimate contradiction through His resurrection. Jesus is in the land of the living--heaven. Every one of us can think of somebody very precious to us who has left the land of the dying and is now in the land of the living. You and I haven't taken that journey yet."
Jesus Himself said "I am the way, the truth, and the life."
Passing Wisdom Sep 9, 2005
Robert Schuller has ever been my inspirational role model and all his books are greater wisdom. Another author Paul Coelho comes to my mind apart from Harold Kushner,Deepak Chopra, Robin Sharma, Osho,etc whose book collection I cherish the most. However, Robert Schuller's books are great guiding light and stand a class apart in spiritual training. Robert schuller speaks the wisdom of living - Motivating, Inspiring and changing Attitudes for a better Positive living lifestyle. This book of RS reflects the most positive flow of thinking 'Be what you are, what god what you to be'. Rob shares his wisdom and power of positive thinking to be optimistic. With great personal stories and anecdotes, likewise his other books, this one has a fine line down the read that speaks of wise advice 'Don't throw away tomorrow - Live the dreams'. Among his best reads I like are:
Tough Times Never Last, Tough People Do! Life is Fair but God is good Tough Minded Faith for Tender Hearts The (Be) Happy Attitudes Success is never Ending, Failure is never final It's going to be me, It's upto me.
Though my best choice pick is Tough minded Faith for tender hearts, this one is an exceptional book as it really has the insight to think ahead to future and turn dreams to reality. I've read all his books and they are best in my library. I also make it a point to gift to the people I like and feel I wish to share Rob's wisdom. These books aren't too costly too.All his 'Better Yourself' serious is marvellous collections.
NOT Schuller's best May 2, 2005
This is not Schuler's best book. I am fan of his weekly show, "The Hour of Power" and while his previous books have been outstanding, it's because most of them have dispensed practical advice and positive attitudes to his readers. As you can see if you watch his show, though, he seems to be getting a little more "loony" with age, for lack of a better term, and "Don't Throw Away Tomorrow" continues on that path. This is less his typical style of writing and more a pat on the back for the celebration of the 50th anniversary of his ministry, which don't get me wrong is well-deserved, and also an extension of his autobiography of a few years back, "My Journey". A little too much "rah-rah-sis-koombah" for my liking in this book. But it's Schuller, so if you like him, I recommend it still. Just don't expect anything new.
Robert Schuller's Best Book Yet Feb 13, 2005
"Don't Throw Away Tomorrow" is Reverand Robert Schuller's best book ever. In this very well written book, Schuller distills his fifty years of building, bridging, and ministering down to the truths of daily living.
Imagine having an opportunity to sit with a very wise person for a day or two...One who is willing to openly share his personal knowledge about the stuff of life - who and what is most important, how to face and overcome the struggles, how to achieve authentic happiness, and when the race is nearly done, how you can look back with satisfaction that you became what God wanted you to be.
Robert H. Schuller is no ordinary elder statesman. While labeled a televangelist, Dr. Schuller is not just a televangelist. He has a broad mix of experiences that set him apart from his peers and others with his years. While a preacher and a very good one, he went against the grain of his own denomination by focusing not on sin but on HOPE. His entire ministry has been dedicated to helping all of us to "become what God wants us to be," the essence of his "Possibility Thinking."
He gained great wisdom while pioneering (an entrepreneurs' entrepreneur)the creation of a mega-Church , the Crystal Cathedral; pioneering an international outreach via TV; and creating innovative ministries to heal and help many of those who are hurting or are in need.
His influence here and abroad is readily apparent when one looks at the creation and expansion of other Churches who have adopted his "Mission" approach in reaching those who are seeking. The work of Rev. Bill Hybels, Willowcreek Church, (near Chicago), and Rev. Rick Warren (A Purpose Driven Life), Saddleback Church, (Orange County), are just two of Dr. Schuller's many students who bear witness to the fruit that has fallen from the Schuller tree.
In "Don't Throw Away Tomorrow," Dr. Schuller, with great personal stories and anecdotes, discusses the power of optimism; the importance of determining one's mission; choosing the values that are most important; living with a "right" conscience; measuring tomorrow's risks and rewards; communicating with honesty and clarity; understanding life's contradictions and one's assumptions: and the overall importance in believing for grand tomorrow.
This is Dr. Schuller's finest book yet! While it is an easy read, it is one that you will want read slowly and savor. It is full of golden nuggets of wisdom gained over his 50 years as a committed minister, entrepreneur, healer, and possibility thinker. Dr. Schuller has been fully committed to helping each of us be all that God has enabled us to be. His underlying life philosophy comes through loud and clear. This is a book many will enjoy. Many will keep this next to their bed stand for years, and many will provide this as a gift in helping others become what God wants them to be!
