✏Life s Healing Choices Revised and Updated Book Summary : With a foreword by Rick Warren, author of The Purpose Driven Life, this revised and updated edition will help you find true happiness—if you choose to accept it. We’ve all been hurt by other people, we’ve hurt ourselves, and we’ve hurt others. And as a result, every single one of us ends up with some sort of hurt, hang-up, or habit. But the question we all face is, Where do we go from here? Ten years after the original edition of Life’s Healing Choices, this newly revised edition contains updates to basic teaching principles—based on ten years’ experience—as well as new and contemporary testimonies. Using the Beatitudes of Jesus as a foundation, Rick Warren and John Baker, pastors at Saddleback Church, developed the eight choices shared in this book. In addition to practical, encouraging biblical teaching, each chapter includes two real-life testimonies of men and women whose lives have been transformed by living out the eight choices in this book. Through making each of these choices, you too will find God’s pathway to wholeness, growth, spiritual maturity, happiness, and healing. You’ll find real answers, real hope, and a real future—one healing choice at a time.

✏The Making of a Pastor Chaplain Book Summary : CAUTION This book may introduce you to the stark realities of a modern-day pilgrim who seeks the fuller life at the feet of Jesus. No pat answers. No attempt to resolve the mysterious interface between God's will and his willingness to let us muddle through the mess of life. The author tells the simple but engaging story of her struggles, aspirations, frustrations, and satisfaction of walking with Jesus the best that she could. Don't be annoyed at her humanity ̄accept it as a humble gift and insight into your own experience. Barb brings us fascinating insights into the different stages of her faith's development and a challenge to reflect upon our own. Certainly good food for great thoughts! Rev. Stephen W. Chaloner, B.Th M.T.S. Regional Director PAOC Africa ----------------------------------------------------------- As I read through this book I kept thinking that this evolution should be read and even studied as a reflection, which is necessary for a person entering the ministry. As Wilson shares her life, family, and ministry events and memories, she has taken the opportunity to openly expose her experiences centered against the backdrop of the seven life stages of recurrent development (1) in the context of her Faith walk. The transparency is refreshing, when in my reading, I found that generally speaking, clergies have a hard time sharing openly their life experiences. Wilson, in her book, encourages pastors, ministers, and clergies to come clean as we live and preach and teach in our respective contexts. By the “storytelling” of her life and faith development, she has given the reader a glimpse of her faith and relationship with Jesus Christ and how this relates to family, friends, community, and ministry interaction with other people; thus, allowing the reader to face life with hope. I would recommend anyone entering a ministry in any context to read this book in order to gain an appreciation of what shapes a ministry and some ways of processing our lived experiences, and forgiving ourselves for our sins and shortcomings. Thank you, Barbara, for giving us your readers, insights from a distance in the “Making of a Pastor/Chaplain” (1) Robert Kegan, “The Evolving Self, Problem and Process in Human Development.” Phillip J. Robillard, Minister of “Faith Community” in downtown Toronto, Ontario. ----------------------------------------------------------- Sometimes, we may take the events of our lives for granted; and, we may be lulled into leaving well enough alone, even though deep down we have a sense that something is missing or not quite right. At other times, we may thirst for a greater depth of meaning in what we are about. As we examine our lives, we may become more aware of experiences, good or bad, associated with past, present or foreseen events. What we may be less aware of, in the moment, is the part we can play in shaping our personal experience of whatever takes place into a more satisfying life journey. This book illustrates how the author, Barbara Wilson, reflected deeply on pivotal life events which, if left unexamined, would have diminished greatly the personal meaning she was able to harvest in her journey through life. She believed in and exercised her inner capacity to move beyond the erstwhile story line of the world into which she was born, by re-visioning and re-shaping experienced events into a living story with satisfactory space both for personal meaning-making and for enabling her to live her preferred values. Her candid reflection on events in her life, many of them painful, others full of joy, as well as her insightful evaluations of these stepping stones and her courageous choices for new directions will inspire and motivate many to take a second look at how they, too, can answer for themselves the pivotal questions: Am I satisfied with my life experience? Who do I want to be now? Who do I want to become? How do I reshap

✏The HEALING CHOICE Book Summary : Two psychotherapists present a supportive guide to coping with the emotional and psychological aftermath of abortion, offering a step-by-step program that combines information, reassurance, and guidance to help women begin the process of recovery. “This is a book for any women who feels psychological pain from her abortion…this is not a book about judgment, politics, or religion.” –from the authors’ introduction Few women can walk away from the experience of abortion without some lingering emotional discomfort. Unresolved feelings of guilt, shame, and sadness may not surface until months, often years, after an abortion. We may lead outwardly normal lives, but these emotions can continue to cast a shadow, having a negative impact on personal relationships, coloring our moral or religious beliefs, even causing anxiety when we deal with a planned pregnancy. These feelings, if ignored, can possibly manifest themselves in more troubling ways, resulting in unstable relationships, self-destructive and addictive behaviors, depression, and low self-esteem. Now, two experienced psychotherapists share their approach to dealing with sensitive and long-overlooked issue of post-abortion pain or trauma. The Healing Choice breaks the silence surrounding a topic often clouded by debate and focuses exclusively on helping women chart a path toward emotional recovery. Through a step-by-step process, complete with self-tests, exercises, and interviews with women who share their own post-abortion experiences, Dr. Candace De Puy and Dr. Dana Dovitch will help you come to terms with your post-abortion emotions and offer support as you begin the process of healing.

✏John s Song of Life Book Summary : Framed as a philosophical dialogue between teacher and student centered on a question of supreme interest to all thinking persons – whether man’s soul or essence is immortal – the work is an attempt to reach a conclusion by integrating into a coherent whole various diverse influences in the life of the author. Inspired by various sources, Eastern and Western, and many years or personal soul searching, the dialogue reflects an optimism in the face of pain or loss that is the result of the author’s lifelong passion for philosophy. When it was first suggested to the author that a brief introduction to John’s Song of Life might be helpful to the reader, his initial reaction was that the dialogue should speak for itself. After some reflection, however, he came to the conclusion that a few words about his background and how this work came to be written might be of interest to at least some of his readers. The effort to philosophically bridge the gap between East and West made herein is the result of the author’s attempt, after many years of study and reflection, to assimilate and integrate into a coherent whole, if possible, differing influences in his life and, specifically, to summarize a personal faith which is both religious and philosophic. Born and raised a Catholic in New York, the author readily acknowledges his debt of gratitude for the invaluable education, religious and secular, he received at the parochial schools he attended over the course of twelve years. Then, after starting college over forty-five years ago, he was introduced one fateful day by a friend to Samuel Weiser’s bookstore at 845 Broadway in New York. There he discovered a veritable treasure-house of countless gems of Eastern wisdom. One of the staff was especially helpful and introduced him to the works of Paul Brunton, an Englishman who became an authority on Yoga and India’s higher philosophy. In a short while, the author, who had theretofore read only Western philosophy in school, became a serious student of Eastern philosophy and, in the process, a pretty good customer of the bookstore. Eventually, one of the proprietors was instrumental in the author’s acquisition of some of Paul Brunton’s letters from a dealer in California. The author never became a professional philosopher. He went from college to law school and thereafter chose a legal career with the State of New York. He did remain a student of Eastern philosophic thought. And was fortunate enough, over the years, to have enjoyed many peaceful weekends of quiet reflection at St. Ignatius Retreat House in Manhasset, New York. It is in this vein that he offers his own reflections for whatever they may be worth to other seekers after truth. What is it really that we seek? One author, John Levy, aptly says that the words “ultimate reality” refer to “a hunger which concepts . . . even creeds, entirely fail to meet, a hunger that is innate in every enquiring person.” Can this hunger ever be satisfied? That ancient classic of Eastern wisdom, the Ashtavakra Gita, repeatedly enjoins us to “be happy.” This command implies that man’s innate hunger and heartfelt longing for the Ultimate can be completely satisfied, notwithstanding the failure of finite human intellect to comprehend It. But does Western wisdom agree? Happily, the answer is yes. The Judeo-Christian tradition includes the beautiful Book of Psalms where we find the famous injunction, “Be still and know that I am God” (Psalms 46:10). Clearly, these words indicate that knowledge of God awaits the man or woman who can find the stillness behind the ever-moving mind. But in our hectic society, can such stillness ever be found? What is Yoga if not a discipline to achieve such an end? That such a discipline has existed in the West as well as the East, though under a different label, is clear from the English mystical classic The Cloud of Unknowing. The author, in examining life as Socrates urged, is an optimist at heart. In the dialogue whic
