Editorial Reviews

Review

"What a good book." Janet Panagore, the author's mom

"Nothing makes a point more clearly than a good story, and this book has hundreds of them.... It'll make you want to spend a lot more than two minutes each day with God." -- Hal Urban, author of The 10 Commandments of Common Sense

"If your busy day leaves too little time for quiet reflection, Two Minutes for God is for you." -- The Rev. Bob Edgar, general secretary, National Council of Churches USA

"Reverend Peter Panagore's charming, humorous, and profound stories support our relationship with God by connecting us to our own selves and to each other. It is because of Panagore's compassion for the human experience that we gain a deeper understanding of life and how to live it. This is the art of storytelling at its best!" -- Susan Dey, actress

Format: Paperback
I received this book as a Christmas gift from my only child who has been mentored by Peter Panagore. He, and his book, have had a wonderful influence in our lives. I keep it on the nightstand with the family Bible and I refer to it every day. This is not a collection of Maine stories about "Maine folks", even though I do recognize some stories and know some of the people. However, it is a set of truly inspirational thoughts that transcend religion, class and time and show the common thread of humanity in all of our lives. We all seem to be searching for answers and often we turn to God. I advise you to do so with Peter and his new book. I start my day off watching "Daily Devotions" and having a cup of tea, both of these actions seem to fortify me for the upcoming day. Give it a try!

Format: Paperback
Peter and I were childhood classmates and I had not seen or heard from him for 30 years until we recently reconnected at a high school reunion. Shortly thereafter I received an email from him about his book. About the same time I recived, as a Christmas gift from a good friend, my very first Bible. Not having ever read a single word of the Bible I was a bit intimidated about where to start so I decided to buy Peter's book to see if it would help. As I started reading Peter's stories daily and making them a part of my morning "wake-up" routine, I noticed that I started to feel more positive about how I approached my day. Shortly thereafter I accepted an invitation to join a bible study group with the friend who gave me my first Bible and am noticing even more postive changes in my life. Peter's way of weaving theme's from the Bible into ordinary daily life events, in short easy to read stories, is an incredible gift. You are not overwhelmed with "preaching" from his stories and leave each one feeling compelled to ask yourself how you can integrate the message into your life. I highly recommend Peter's book to anyone looking for a simple way to add more spirituality to your life. It certainly has helped me begin my long overdue relationship with God.

Format: Paperback
The amusing and inspirational anecdotes combined with the author's conversational and intelligent tone makes this an appropriate read for people of all faiths. No matter where you are in your life journey, the messages ring true and resonate. It's a perfect gift book for yourself or for anyone on your list who likes a good story but doesn't have the leisure time to devote to a full blown novel or conventional story collection.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I like that each story is brief and to a universal point. This book IS universal, not a sect book. It's about life and all of our stories. They are humorous, serious, dramatic, fullfilling, and all can be shared whether you look to God or not. This book has messages for all, and make so such common sense, that you'll wonder why it took you so long to figure out the breadth of life. This book teaches in words how to live your life deliberately 365 days a year, throughout your lifetime... with thought and thoughtfulness. The human race needs to correct all the bad that is going on, and I do think these stories can give your heart and mind direction to help make this needed change...starting from your faith within. The author is online at www.dailydevotions and his voice is kind to hear. You can actually read many of the passages online!

I love listening to Peter Panogore! I listen to his 4 minute show on TV, each month. The messages are thought provoking and makes me think about how I think and act. I know what kind of person I want to be, but am I being that person? These stories give you something to think about, do I see my self in that? Fools think their own way is right. But the wise listen to others. Proverbs 12:15. Am I a Fool or Wise or both. I don't believe I need to justify myself to any other, to be what others want me to be. I do need to justify my actions to myself and God. What kind of person do I want to be? These Quick Fixes, gives me things to reflect on and help me.

I love Rev. Panagore but his "nuggets" at the end don't zing me. .Could be my feeling about the nuggets aren't as meaningful to me as those in Healing AfterLoss.
I always like Peter's stories,though.

Each story is a gift of serenity I give myself everyday. Some are funny, some are moving and emotional, all are a "good read". I recommend this book very highly.
