Norman Peale has been at the frontline of spirituality since the middle of last century. He was a front runner in the striving to create a positive way of dealing with stress, depression, low self-esteem etc., and created his brand of 'positive thinking' from the position of being a Preacher, in the US. In this book, his text is based on using quotations from the Bible, and commenting on them. He gives exact instructions as to how to 'drench' your mind with chosen healing thoughts. I find him an inspiration because he obviously learnt his method by doing it, and became a great success. Nowadays, it is not very 'fashionable' to use the Bible as a base for spirituality. In my view there is still a lot of validity in N. Peales's approach, as there is a timelessness and strength in the old classical Biblical words.
