In "Peace of Mind," Rabbi Liebman tries to present some answers that have proved helpful to him about the universal human dilemmas of conscience, love, fear, grief, and God - crucial problems that present themselves in every kind of society, and, he believes, will present themselves as long as man is man. Whether under capitalism, socialism, or communism, men and women will still face the purely personal and profoundly individual issues of life and death as well as the tangled interpersonal relations of parent and child, brother and sister, husband and wife. Personal experience plus rich and varied contacts in the author's ministry led him to believe that a book written by a religionist explaining just what modern psychology has discovered about human beings, why we sometimes hate ourselves and hate others, why we grow afraid, why we lose faith in life and in God, might be of real help to perplexed moderns. This science also tells us what we can do to change ourselves and our mental attitudes in relation to our own personalities and in interrelations with other human beings. "Peace of Mind" attempts to distill the helpful insights about human nature that psychology has discovered and the encouraging news from the scientific clinic about man's infinite capacity to change and improve himself, as well as to correlate these latest scientific discoveries with the truest religious insights and goals of the ages.

1. A review of mental health & personal growth from the late 1940's, a time when psychology was emerging onto the American landscape in a big way. And psychology was rubbing shoulders with religion. Sort of the new kid on the block. Liebman respects both, yet provides clear distinctions.
2. Even as 2014 comes to a close, Peace of Mind still does its job. If the reader wishes to gain tremendous insight into a healthier outlook on life, this is the way to do it. Liebman, with plenty of backup, describes in detail how and why a gentler, calmer, and more peaceful way of life is the way to go. Let me correct myself, it more than does its job. Anyone caught up in the swift current of today's world, unable to experience "peace of mind" must stop everything they are doing right now and read this book. Amen.
