Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

How can I …cope with stress? rebound from failure? defeat depression? have peace of mind? Life’s difficult questions have answers. Answers from the Bible that can change your outlook—and your life. Rick Warren writes, “In each of these studies, you will discover simple ways to apply God’s truth to your personal life, your family, and your job. The way to get the most out of this book is to act on it.” Rick Warren takes you inside the Scriptures to see what they reveal about twelve of the most pressing questions people ask. They are questions you yourself either have asked or most likely will ask. This book provides simple, straightforward answers you can begin to apply right away to move past your worst sticking points and enjoy a life of purpose, peace, and significance. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Hardcover
By relating a common problem to a biblical figure (Stress - Jesus, Resilience - Peter, Depression - Elijah, Mediocrity - Jabez, Peace of Mind - Moses, Discouragement - Nehemiah, Problem Solving - Jehoshaphat, Confidence in Crisis - Paul, Change - Jacob, Regret - Samson, Loneliness - Paul), the author had written a great book for Christians who need guidance on Earth. The beauty of it, on top of the superb advice one can find in an above average self help book, is that readers can easily refer themselves to the spiritual heroes of whom they are already familiar with. That helps both memory, application and faith. Afterall, "We cant live out the Christian life on our own, because we have a power shortage. We need the power that comes from God. pg112" No matter how brilliant a self help book can be, there's no better way to get advice and power from God. In short, highly recommended!

p.s. Below please find my favorite passages for your reference.

Preparation prevents pressure but procrastination produces it. Good organization and good preparation reduce stress because you know who you are, whom you're trying to please, and what you want to accomplish. Having clear goals greatly simplifies life. pg19
You can choose whether those things will make you a bitter person or a better person. It is your responsibility. No one can ruin your life except you! The devil cant, because he doesnt have enough power. God wont, because he loves you. Only you can ruin your own life. pg87
Money is to be used, not loved. pg89

If you are struggling with stress, failure, depression, an overwhelming crisis, this is a great book. The great thing about this book is that it gives real steps that you can do right now to help your situation and the way you think. It is written from a Christian perspective and offers Bible references and stories that offer hope and strength in difficult times. I loved the story of Elijah. I had read I Kings 19 before, but never thought about it the way he explains. It is short and to the point, not a lot of fluff, just sincere help when you need it most.

Format: Hardcover
Rick Warren writes in a straight-forward manner, referring to scripture that applies to common problems many of us face in life. He uses everyday language to explain what the Bible says. He gives an uplifting approach to defeating depression, stress, discouragement, loneliness, and other types of life crises.

I had recently gone through a small group Bible study based on this book. After the experience, I chose to buy the book for a more in depth study on my own. I am in the midst of a criminal trial and much family anguish in relation to a previously secret addiction.

The book affirmed many of the emotions that I have been feeling. It also gave me greater peace that God has a plan for me even in the midst of this trial. I thank God and Rick for this book. I still have bad days when I dwell on unknown answers but this book and its insights have helped me see my life going forward. I highly recommend this book.

Format: Hardcover
This book discusses each question with a story from Bible. The length and explanation of each chapter is simple and good enough for most readers. The most important is that the author can help you find the answer from Bible or the reason God allows those questions happen. Like "The Purpose Driven Life", he uses the same way to help reader to understand God's purpose. However, someone may find the discussion on each question not details enough. The author may write another edition with deeper discussion and his own experience on those questions.

Rick Warren has written another common sense book for all to benefit from. The questions at the end of each chapter challenge the reader to go one more step. We are using it in our Bible study. I have enjoyed the book very much.

Format: Hardcover
I thought this book would ask questions about the big bang theory and conflicts between science and the Bible. It's not that at all, but it offers value in a different way. It takes a new message from the main characters of the Bible to show how we are to exhibit our characters, how we should respond to stress, and what types of goals we should make and perspectives we should have to live godly lives. I really enjoyed listening to the audiobook I rented from my library & even started to listen to it a second time. It's almost like listening to a sermon series, but more like attending a motivational speaking seminar. The book doesn't answer all the questions, my main one being "how can we be like the woman who had enough faith to declare that God would convert her son on Friday--making a specific request & expecting him to follow through, when there are whole churches who apply faith in believing God will heal a member so that he doesn't need surgery--they use the same expectoral prayers and God doesn't come through?" I think it's still a nice basis for direction, but those questions will come up and you'll have to battle with them individually.
