Even people who are already familiar with the value of positive self-talk can reap the benefits of this book by being reminded of the power of this potential which is available to everyone.
He gives examples of how it has worked successfully in the lives of various people from differenct backgrounds.
Unlike a lot of other books in this genre, he devotes a chapter to the abuse of positive self-talk by putting it into a broader context than most authors. Stoop addresses the issue of the sovereignty of God in the matter of faith and positive confession. He goes on to point out that self-talk isn't something we create, it already is going on, the issue is learning how to use this reality to one's advantage.
The only thing I think I disagreed with the author about is anger. I'm much happier now that I get angry far less often. I don't think anger is a healthy emotion if you are getting angry all the time. Some self-talk may help you in this case. In fact this book claims that anger and fear are responsible for major illnesses.
I feel this book will appeal mostly to a Christian audience, however it will also appeal to those patient enough to deal with the Kindle book which has a outdated font. At least it looks like the book was scanned into a computer after being typed with a faulty typewriter. All the "e's" are especially annoying. Yes I had to talk my way through this book to keep reading. I'd suggest the paperback instead of the Kindle version.
However, despite this the book has some value even 32 years later. It has a lot of wisdom and focuses on how attitude makes or breaks us. This book will also help those who are prone to worry or who are very stressed out by their thoughts.
~The Rebecca Review
Being made over again in His image requires active participation in controlling our thoughts or as Paul says "...taking every thought captive..."
This is the best practical book out there on how to get more control of thoughts and take them captive. Buy it.
Enlightened...is what I am...
