1-0 out of 5 stars Buy a book on probability instead
This book is mostly built around the idea "I wish it were true = it *is* true".While this book has innate appeal to those looking for meaning in their lives, if you're looking for a firm foundation for understanding coincidences in your life (i.e. intellectual integrity), you'd be better off buying an introduction to probability.

4-0 out of 5 stars Everything Happens For A Reason
I enjoyed this quick read.I did skip over a few chapters that I didn't feel were pertinent to me, but still really enjoyed this book.If you are looking to see if you are on the right path in life, read God Winks.And then, start paying attention, you'll be surprised at what comes to mind!

5-0 out of 5 stars Thoroughly enjoyable
This was an enjoyable book from the first page to the last.We all have moments of coincidence and this book puts into perspective that these moments do not "just happen"...putting the focus on God. I love the imagery of God "winking" at such a moment as if to say, "Hey there kid, I'm thinking about you right now."Now whenever a coincidence happens in my life, I find myself winking back to say, "Thank You, God...I'm thinking about You right now, too!"Very well written.Hats off to SQuire Rushnell for an exceptionally good book! ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Beautiful
Very beautiful deck. You may notice though that some of the cards have images which are not as clear and are somewhat blurry. Perhaps this has occured due to the collage formation but if you look carefuly you will see that some images are a bit smudged than others.

5-0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous and inspirational
I've been using this deck for over 2 years now and have had some wonderful readings from it.It is gorgeous to look at and you can literally find that you lose yourself in the images.I love the gilded edges too - this is a really peaceful and meditative deck.

5-0 out of 5 stars Day-by-Day Readings

Look inside yourself and really think about what the cards reveal. AMAZING! I do a reading to start each day and find it useful both personally and professionally. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars WOW! BILL HAS THE REVELATION!
When I ordered this book I was interested in more of God and thought the title catchy. WOW!!!!I got so much more than I bargained for. I found a book that should be cannonized as scripture! If you are looking for MORE and MORE and a class one step off of the Word of Faith than this book is for you for it is the RHEMA of FAITH! Bill has found the portal to the greater life that we have only dreamed of! Come along for a faith filled wild ride with God! AND the best part is there is MORE!!!!!! And ANYONE can have it who is IN HIM! This book is MEAT for all of us who have EXITED from the RELIGIOUS arena and also gone beyond the Word OF Faith! If you are faint hearted this is not for you! If you are not hungry for God this is not for you!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic and faith stretching
This was a marvelous book that doesn't hold any punches.Johnson makes no apologies for the manifested power of God that he teaches about and practices in his ministry.And he cites chapter and verse so you can read it for yourself, which I appreciated.

This is one of the first books that pointed the way for me to create a deliriously happy life. This book is a tremendous blessing. It may not have been perfectly edited, but I found the information contained in it highly valuable and life-enhancing. I count Lynn among my angels for writing it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excuse Me Your Life Is Waiting
This book is exceptional!I have been a personal development student for decades and this book is the beginning of putting it all together.Lynn Grabhorn and her series of books have advanced my life in such a way that now anything is possible for me to create.
1-0 out of 5 stars Excuse me, I wish I was still waiting... before
... reading this book. Had I known Ms. Grabhorn's affiliation to people who claim they can channel 35,000 year old warrior spirits I would STILL be waiting, and I would be $17.00 richer for it.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great 'how to' book
A good summary of many of the self-improvement books I have read over the past few years. The Power of Focus is more like a workbook with exercises at the end of each chapter.
5-0 out of 5 stars Terrific!
This is a great simple how-to-instruction manual for life. Easy to read and understand.I would recommend this to anyone who wants and needs help to get their life on track.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Self Help Book on the Market
The Power of Focus is a concise and powerful call to action. This is a life changing book to be read over and over again, not one of those self help books that you read once and then put on the shelf never to look at again. This book contains practical action steps to help you meet your business, personal and financial goals. This book is not just a way to business or financial success but the blueprint for living a successful life. I recommend this The Power of Focus whole heartedly for anyone who wants to achieve more in any area of their life. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars HELPFUL ADVICE FOR FINDING YOUR SWEET SPOT
In this book, Lucado shares the statistic that 87 percent of workers are slaving outside of their sweet spots, that place where passions and talents intersect. His book is filled with inspirational insight as well as practical tools for finding the cure.
5-0 out of 5 stars Not too many christian authors can be revered by Dr. Phil, Alan Colmes, and Lee Strobel at the same time
I agree with other five star reviewers when I say MAX HAS DONE IT AGAIN.Ever since the first Lucado book I read (When God whispers your name) I have been a huge fan.I consider myself a discerner, and its great to relax my pride a bit and savor the books of Max Lucado.
5-0 out of 5 stars Great perspective even if you are on the mommy track!
As a former leadership development trainer, I LOVED this book. I am now a stay at home Mom and this book spoke volumes to me, even in my situation (outside the workforce) about finding a ministry niche in addition to my new vocation as Mom.

4-0 out of 5 stars Bilingual BIBLE -- Englsih--Spanish
I am very plesed with this bible. I use it for the purpose of studying Spanish. I find this an excellent way to master new vocabulary and for gaining an understanding of idiomatic phrases. In the past I used separate Bibles and this was very time consuming. I can now read a chapter a day and study the new phrases without having recourse to a dictionary.
5-0 out of 5 stars Spanish/English Bible
This Bible has a nice leather cover, readable type size and font, and is set up well on the page for someone who is aspiring to be bilingual.Verses are across from each other in two columns on each page, so going back and forth between languages is easy.An excellent Bible, excellent value and we received it in 2 days.

4-0 out of 5 stars Readable Willard
Frankly I like Dallas Willard's stuff but sometimes he is tough sledding.I've taken several runs at "The Divine Conspiracy" based on countless rave reviews but inevitably I give up.So "The Great Omission" may not be all fresh and profound like some would like, but it has one pretty good thing going for it -- it is readable.
2-0 out of 5 stars Part Two
Great follow up to Divine Conspiracy... a reminder to keep moving toward Jesus in the process of transformation and Kingdom living.

4-0 out of 5 stars Introduction to the disciplines - nothing new here
Dallas Willard is a joy to be able to bump brains with in book format.No other book has had the effect on me that Divine Conspiracy did, and still does.However, if you have read Willard's other works, you will find little new here.The Great Omission is a collection of essays, which overlap each other quite often, and can get very repetitive.This one is for completists only.Good for maybe picking up and reading a different essay every so often, but reading from front to back can get exhausting.Still, it's Willard, so it gets 4 stars.If you've never read any Willard, this is not a bad place to start.Maybe his most accessable work to date. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Ties it all together very nicely
I read Home with God without the benefit of having read Mr. Walsch's previous works and I must say that I recommend it without question.Since I read Home with God I have purchased ALL of Mr. Walsch's previous work and I have enjoyed them all tremendously.Home with God is so special because we all want to know what is beyond our current knowing.I have always felt that my idea of what God would do and be was quite different from what mainstream religions preach.I never could understand how God could hate anything he/she created. Mr. Walsch's God is the God I have always believed in and had faith in and experience daily in my conversations with God.I recommend you take the book slowly and allow it to become a part of you.We are all one people (children of God) and what hurts one of us hurts us all.Reminds me of the phrase "United we stand, divided we fall."Read this book with an open heart and allow yourself to be healed and comforted and reconnected to God like never before.It will positively change your life.
2-0 out of 5 stars Conversations with God?
Neale Walsh has written several New Age style books on his conversations with God, all of them bestsellers and great in popularity.However, I always get the feeling on reading his works his God is a very wishy-washy one.
5-0 out of 5 stars Perfect...for those with an open mind.
I loved this book as much as I did all the others in the "Conversations with God" series. Although it can be read and understood on its own, its better to read all the others first.

Editorial Review

By melding love, science, and religion into a primer on personalgrowth, M. Scott Peck launched his highly successful writing and lecturing career withthis book. Even to this day, Peck remains at the forefront of spiritualpsychology as a result of Read more

Reviews (141)

1-0 out of 5 stars Good example of selfishness
It is apparent that the first premise in Peck's book is that in order for humans to be a whole being, one must grow through spirituality (or enlightenment) attained through "grace" with the main purposes of gaining "capacity and understanding of serendipity" (309) and through "spiritual evolution, whereby people grow towards godhood" (270) and "become God" (283).
5-0 out of 5 stars Life Changing
Peck's definition of love is unparalleled in any of the literature I have read concerning the matter. I have always been particularly fond of Kahlil Gibran's depiction of marriage and love. However, I feel that Peck redefines it in modern English and provides a contrast to the "mainstream" view of love and "falling in love."
4-0 out of 5 stars Life is difficult...
I read this book and the sequel, People of the Lie around the time that they came out.I was stunned by Peck's honesty. The stories of how he and his patients struggle with the problems and obstacles that confront them are amazing.

Reviews (196)

2-0 out of 5 stars Not nonpartisan
Wallis pitches his book as an attempt to show that Christians can be Democrats or Republicans, or whatever presumably.Here, he is correct.He also pitches his argument as being nonpartisan. Here, he is mistaken; it doesn't take too long to figure out his idea of nonpartisan is liberal Democrat.

1-0 out of 5 stars WELL WRITTEN BLATHER
Although well written, this book is just left wing socialist blather. Most egregiously in error is the author's characterization of Catholic social teaching. He wuld have us believe that the Catholic Church is all behind the US social welfare system. Just one quote summarizes where the Catholic Church really is on this issue:
5-0 out of 5 stars finding common ground in higher ground
jim wallis' book "God's politics: why the right gets it wrong and the left doesn't get it" offers a great response to many major issues that our country is grappling with these days. wallis convicts both republicans and democrats and speaks with a surprising level of urgency and candor. he reminds the reader that God is neither a republican or a democrat, that He doesn't want you to vote partisan but according to your highest ideals, and that yes, He definitely HATES war, torture, and injustice. some conservative critics complain that he wants to make all Christians into democrats and start a socialist movement, but it's actually very clear from reading the first few pages that this isn't true. no matter how you vote and no matter what your faith, it's an insightful read that bucks all the party lines and encourages those who want to vote from the heart. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Wide-Eyed Wonder
This book somewhat builds on the anthropic principle, the idea that our planet is finely tuned for life. It follows the long-out of print and highly readable contribution by Augros and Stanciu, The New Story of Science. The authors search the world for evidences of not simply design, but genius, and examine human genius to see what it might look like. Along the way they not only ruminate over a myriad dazzling ideas and observations, but also bring a much-needed cooling down to the pitched debate over intelligent design.
5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Exploration of Nature's Genius
A Meaningful World is a profoundly thoughtful, clever and witty exploration of the beauty and genius of nature.Where reductionists see unguided, mechanistic processes and meaninglessness, Doctors Benjamin Wiker and Jonathan Witt see purpose and layer upon layer of meaning.The new book is a valuable contribution to the ongoing debate surrounding neo-Darwinian evolutionary theory and the theory of intelligent design (ID), and a must-read for those who follow this debate.
5-0 out of 5 stars The Summation of Evidence of Design
Benjamin Wiker and Jonathan Witt have coauthored a very compelling account of why science and the arts reveal design and genius in nature.This accomplishment serves as a summation of the various written accounts of the revival of the theory of design as the overarching philosopical explanation of the physcial world.Stating that the sum is greater than the individual parts, Wiker and Witt have written a thorough attack upon the materialist reductionist belief system and exposed the central false assumption of our times.

5-0 out of 5 stars Get Ready for a Thought Changing Experience
I first read the Celestine Prophecy in 1996 and since then it has and always will hold a special place in my heart as the awakening of my spiritual journey that changed my life. When I began to read it I felt like bells and whistles were going off in my head, my heart rate quickened, and I knew without a doubt that the insights were real. I knew I had to explore them - there had to be a better way to live than having the same dramas repeating over and over again in my life. The Celestine Prophecy was the foundation that helped me to move into being someone who now lives in honesty, integrity, with self-awareness, and self-love.

I finally got around to reading this "Da Vinci Code" of the 90s at the suggestion of a coworker, prior to a trip to Peru I recently took.I had to force myself to finish it despite my initial inclination to toss it after the first 20 pages made me alternately laugh and groan at the lackluster writing, hoping that it would recover and turn out to be worthy of the best-selling status it once enjoyed.
4-0 out of 5 stars help, i'm drowning!
my husband's has been trying to get me to read this book for the past 5 years. finally, i've finished it! (it just wasn't the right time). i think it's a good book--totally relative to life. somewhat of a self-help book. particularly if you're someone that finds yourself in the same situations over and over and needs some help getting out of a rut. it sugguests an alternative perspective and approach to conflict. although it's written like a fiction, it gives insight to determining what YOUR problem is and how to deal with the people that come in and out of your life...good luck! ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Using Parker Palmer's The Courage to Teach
I was introduced to Palmer's book by a participant in a series of workshps I give on Teaching, Learning, and Technology. This participant said that my coverage of pedagogic and technologic issues would be augmented by dealing with the personal factors a teacher brings to a course. Having read Palmer sveral times as I offer these workshops, I can say that it is probably the single most important text I have found in my extensive review of literature on teaching and learning. This opinion is supported by the comments of people in my workshops, who universally agree that reading it has changed their approach to teaching in a positive way. I cannot recomment it more highly.

2-0 out of 5 stars Gets better as it goes....?
I'll preface this by saying that I'm a university teacher who cares deeply about teaching, which I guess must be why this book was recommended to me in the first place. The early chapters I found simply intolerable, heavily reliant on unexamined truistic claptrap about self-knowledge, the soul, etc, etc. The whole book is overwritten and florid, like the inside of a greetings card. It is hard to be genuinely profound in that sort of prose, and I wished that Parker, who is clearly a wonderful and thoughtful teacher, had had the courage to write in something approximating the language of normal speech.
5-0 out of 5 stars Takes Courage to Read It!
A moving, poetic, and inspiring work on the art, profession, and calling of teaching. "I am a teacher at heart, and there are moments in the classroom when I can hardly hold the joy" (p. 1). Palmer builds a theoretical framework of teaching based on integrity, authenticity, humility, community, hope, and love. Offers great hope to those temporarily mired in the minutia of teaching, as well as a frighteningly stark contrast for those not truly called to teach. Leaves little room for lukewarmness or doubt. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent
Love and Respect is a wonderful book! It really helped me understand many things. It deals with situations in which a man or woman is responsible for discord in the relationship. This is one topic I have learned about in the past, and thought I had really implemented in my life, but I was amazed at how much I still did not understand about the way men think and respond. Read this book even if you're not having marital problems.

1-0 out of 5 stars Christ loved the church first
If the church is our example of marriage Christ LOVED us first. He did not need to be respected first. I agree with the main idea of the book, however the author puts more pressure on women than on men. Men, lead the way in love as Christ did, even when he received no respect but crucifixion.

5-0 out of 5 stars This book was a blessing
My husband and I have read this book together and it has made all the difference in the world to our relationship.The love and respect thing that is gone over and over again in the book is right on.At first it feels a little wierd but stick with it, it WILL make the difference that you have been looking for.It has put the great things back into our lives. ...

The transaction went perfectly smooth!

5-0 out of 5 stars Five Stars for Potential
We have just begun to use this text and accompanying workbook and video at our church for a seven-week study to determine our God given talents and calling. Apparently this material is also used in business for the same purpose. The initial process is to go online and take a strength finder assessment (approx. 30-40) minutes. This assessment then provides the user with a ranking of their top five strengths. Note: Each book has a unique code that can be used only once to take the assessment. The results from that assessment is then the basis for the remainder of the study, e.g., six weeks in the workbook. I have not read through the entire book. Most of the content is concerned with describing the thirty-four "themes" (e.g., strenghts). I would not recommend purchasing the book without the accompanying "Journey" workbook - and I would think that doing this on your own (with the book and workbook) would be valuable but not as vaulable as doing it in a small group.

5-0 out of 5 stars great stuff
I appreciated the way this book helps staff find the focus of their strengths. It's a great way to help people know what others already know about them. I highly recommend this for a staff retreat.
