Wonderful Book Jan 9, 2010
I have to admit that I wasn't sure that I wanted to read this book. After all, this is the son of Dr. Robert Schuller, the founding pastor of the Crystal Cathedral. I don't find Dr. Schuller's teachings to be Biblical and thought his son would probably be the same. I was wrong.
I enjoyed this book so much and found myself hard-pressed to put it down. It was not some "feel good" book where you chant a few positive thoughts as a cure all. No, this book is full of sound, Biblical advice and I know I could relate to it on so many levels. Each chapter discussed different ways that we can disassociate ourselves from God and how to get back to and with God using the Bible as the key to the pathway. I also loved the fact that at the end of each chapter, there were thought-provoking questions that we could ask ourselves in an effort to understand ourselves and our relationship with the Lord.
I think one of the reasons I did chose to read this book is because of the struggles Mr. Schuller has gone through in recent months. He was removed first from the "Hour of Power" television show and then removed as Senior Pastor of the Crytal Cathedral. I wondered how he was going to handle this because, lets face it, being removed from your father's church is no small matter! I had read some of his comments online about the situation and was very impressed with his thoughts about the whole thing. He truly is leaning into God during this hard time in his life and is following Biblical principles - not some positive thinking, feel good slogan.
I felt that he could understand my struggles because he's been though so much of his own and that the book was a reflection of those struggles. I knew he believed what he was writing and had probably used these same principles himself. There's something much more reassuring when the person writing the book understands what it's like to walk a mile in my moccasins!
This is definitely a book that will remain on my book shelf as I know I will refer to it again and again. Sometimes during the hard times, we need someone to point the way to the right scriptures and this book definitely fills that need. I highly recommend this book!
