5.0 out of 5 starsHe lived what he preached
Reviewed in the United States on August 12, 2018
I had the good pleasure to meet Norman and Ruth Peale and spend an evening with them. They held hands and treated each other with utmost respect, gazing at each other with pure love. At one point during dinner he looked to make sure the driver of their older blue sedan was seated and having dinner as well. He was an inspiration not only because of his words, but because of his attitude and living what he preached. I will never forget that night. The impression he left was timeless, this kind soul that truly lived what he taught.
5.0 out of 5 starsAmazing Stories of Spiritual and Physical Transformation
Reviewed in the United States on May 25, 2017
When you read one of Norman Vincent Peale's books you may feel compelled to read another and another as I've done recently. This is the third book I've read and it is one of the best so far. This book is about the positive and life changing power of Jesus Christ when you accept him into your life as your guide and savior. This book is filled with stories of people who were struggling with either psychological issues or physical issues. Those who used the power of Jesus to heal themselves also came to enjoy a life of peace and joy. There were some very hopeless cases that will amaze.
Some of the stories come to Norman Vincent Peale through letters he shares in the book. People were sure good writers back in his day. There was a genuineness to their writing that few take time to express these days with tweets, email and Facebook. Long gone is the letter written and put in the mail and I think we need to read letters like that even in our hurried times.
If you have an indomitable spirit and still have issues to deal with, this book gives clues and direction on how to turn your life around for the better. Norman Vincent Peale was not only a pastor but saw deeply into the souls of his church members to help heal soul sickness.
This book also includes some marriage advice and a story of a faith healing. Norman Vincent Peale believed in a supernatural God who could heal soul, mind and body. This is one of the essential books to read if you are ill, depressed, lacking energy or generally not feeling up to the task of life. This books holds the secrets to life's problems. I also encourage you to read The Power of Positive Thinking which goes much more into detail about how to salvage your life and be successful.
I have the kindle and audible versions. I have heard about Dr Peale through Jack Canfield's books but this was my first book to read. I have since gotten several more. This is awe inspiring. Wonderful accounts of the power of Christ in people's lives.
5.0 out of 5 starsHeartful and of hope that our Lord can only provided. Dr Peale it is good to say is at home in heaven with our lord it is an honor to read and study his work the Lord has allowed to be available

I love the art of the man whom presented it. This book provides not only hope but through prayer and the Words of our lord Jesus Christ there is nothing we can not accomplish. Lord thank you for sharing these works and I pray they continue to touch hearts as they have mine
4.0 out of 5 starsMany great examples of the Power of Jesus Christ!!!

I like the examples but thought it was going to talk more about how the Power can be achieved in one's life. It references The Power of Positive Thinking which I presume is how to get there. So if you buy this book make sure to buy the other one too.
I have read numerous of Norman Vincent Peale's books, and this is my favorite. I hope that it will be reprinted and put back out on the market in mass because the message of this book can change a person's life. I highly recommend it!
