Just on time! Aug 3, 2005
I had not been having such a good 'spiritual' time this past year and this book fell into my hands in a providencial way. It helped me to refocus where I had to focus on, God. A certain moment came and, in a way that I would not have been able to respond earlier in the year, I was able to live the moment in faith and peace. I give thanks to the Lord for being there always, because "God is good". Praise be the Lord! Thanks also to Robert H. Schuller for being an instrument of Him. God bless you!
Life Isn't Fair but God Really Is? Is He? Oct 29, 2004
Each individual lives with hopes - Who give Hopes? Robert Schuller does! Yeah, Life Isn't Fair always as we face a lot of ups and downs and hopes make one survive. It's a faith strong to build within and to read Robert's Books means keep the faith as he instil hope in the minds that Life may not be fair but keep the faith and sure, God Really sees your problems and help comes at the nick of hour. Being a great fan of Robert Schuller, his inspirations leads to a perspective to think Positive. Obstacles come your way but it is upto me, upto us, to face the challenges by keeping the faith in God. In the Religious text of Gita, it is said in hindi language 'Jo hota hai voh accha hi hoga, jo hoga voh accha hi ho raha hai...apna karm karte jao' Meaning to say, What happens is for good, what will happen will happen good, just do your good deeds. So, I believe, Robert also gives a hope and help you to be happy even in time of difficulties as you read the book coz his words in this book reflect a message to Keep the Faith and believe, trust in God. God really is fair, Is he sometimes??? Only he knows! Good console, good book.
Schuller's books are cathartic Apr 22, 2002
This is only the second of Schuller's books that I've read and I am already noticing his uncanny knack for making you put your life into perspective. In "Life's not Fair but God is Good", Schuller relates more stories about himself, the people he's known, and the difficult situations they've all worked their way out of, through faith and positive thinking.
Unlike other motivational authors, Schuller doesn't so much tell you how to "change" your life, as much as he shows you how to make the best of the life you now live. "When life hands you lemons, make lemonade" as they say. Reading about some of the situations Schuller and many of his longtime friends have dealt with in their lives, only to come out better people, it increasingly makes me feel as if my biggest source of stress and tribulation, that being my work, is really nothing to take personally. A job is just a job and in reality, the rest of my life is going just fine. There are some people who not only don't have a job, but who couldn't work anyway because of some health problem. Schuller seems to know a lot of the folks who were able to figure out how to do what they love, in spite (or because) of their health or other such obstacles.
Pick up "Life's not Fair, but God is Good". I also recommend "If it's Going to Be, it's Up to Me". This kind of pseudo-therapy from Robert Schuller at the small cost of his books is a steal.
Makes You Appreciate Your Life May 3, 2001
In the past four months life has dealt my family some severe blows and I wish I had read this book two months ago. It still had a profound effect on how I will view my future but it would have helped me get on the right track sooner. It will help you understand that God is really Good and not our enemy. Rev. Schuller explains with simple examples and simple words how our attitude toward the "unfair events of our lives" can be turned into the most rewarding and enriching times. He helps us to understand that giving thanks to God is the key to finding peace and our way in this earthly life. His message shows that finding God replaces the emptiness and the fear of what might happen. I recommend this book to anyone who is facing challenges in their lives or has recently lost someone dear to them. I bought this book two weeks ago and have already shared it with two friends.
Life's Not Fair But God is Good Jun 28, 2000
Reverand Schuller has done it again. This is a sensational book. I received this book from my father a few months ago. After reading just the first page, I was totally captivated by it. Reverand Schuller gives hope to everyone, no matter what their religion or belief. This book has made me laugh, cry and literally drop my chin to the floor. Reverand Schuller shows us that no matter what our situation may be, there is always a brighter side with God showing us the way.
