Jerry J. Pollock began his vague yet unwavering belief in God in his teenage years. However he was spiritually bankrupt and devoid of aspiring to a higher meaning in his life. When he found himself at the crossroads of either continuing on the wrong path or choosing the path that would be the beginning of his ascension on God's spiritual ladder he choose God's spiritual ladder and thus began his spiritual journey.
Divinely Inspired is the personal story of Jerry J. Pollock. Having come from a traumatic childhood and dealing with a mental illness he gives hope to others who have endured the same trials in life. This book is written from a Jewish perspective but is an inspirational read for anyone of any religious background. I found Divinely Inspired to be a well-written, honest, and thought provoking book to read and recommend it to others.
Jerry Pollock is born into a less than ideal family where his neglectful mother and neurotic father do not and cannot provide him with the love and nuturing all children deserve. It will not be until many years later, when Jerry begins Primal Therapy, that he will discover the repressed memories of his childhood.
Divorced from his first wife, now a full professor at Stony Brook University, and planning to marry Marcia, Jerry hears the words that will eventually change his life.
After being diagnosed with Bipolar disorder at age 50, enduring the collapse of his career, attempting suicide, and encountering a cult, Jerry returns to those words he heard a decade ago. His spiritual journey brings him past the memories, the hurts, and the disappointments of his earlier years, and moves him forward to a life of enduring richness and meaning.
If you read and enjoyed Pollock's not-so-fictional novel, "Messiah Interviews: Belonging to God", you'll want to pick up a copy of "Divinely Inspired".
In true memoir form, Pollock shares his life in a candid way, holding nothing back, and the reader will be left amazed by some of the things that the author has endured. The dedication of his wife, Marica, that is also so lovingly portrayed in "Messiah Interviews", also shines through in "Divinely Inspired", as she supports and loves her husband through many difficult experiences.
The addition of an Epilogue that shares the author's spiritual insights is a brave move. Having spent his life as a scientist, Pollock shares his belief that Evolution and Creation are not mutually exclusive because God is the Master Scientist.Read more ›
Read this book and then the next. Meet Jerry. Know him and you'll know his journey - a painfully true and frank story that calls out to the reader to embrace Jerry in his pain in one moment and to celebrate with him the next. The book is as painful to read as one might expect when hearing of another's tragic rearing. But take heart as the author teaches us to reach inside, to grab hold of what remains, to refuse to be imprisoned by our past, and to find our source of spiritual renewal and growth. We don't just read Pollock's journey, we walk with him on our own as well. Divinely Inspired may be a quick read but not one soon forgotten.
