We discover life as much with our hearts as with our heads. Personal experiences, relationships, and stories provide more effective media for investigating spiritual realities than any essay or scholarly treatise. That is precisely the gift that the ten contributors in this book have shared. Five of these contributors discuss how they have used faith to help others while five discuss how they have used faith to help themselves.
Many of us wish that we could lead lives of service, and would prefer one day to leave the world a better place because we were in it. Perhaps reading the accounts of these people¿s faith and service to others will open a place in your heart to follow suit.
Many of us are on a quest for personal redemption. Abuse, compulsive behaviors, trauma, bad parenting, peer pressure, fear of death and a thousand other social pressures serve as albatrosses around our necks. The concluding chapters describe how five individuals discovered upward pathways towards the light through dark forces and circumstances in their lives.
This is absolutely one book you must read. It will make you laugh, it will make your cry, it will give you inspiration.
