If you've been deeply hurt and haven't been able to forgive, please read this book. It might be the way for you to find peace and freedom from whatever pain and anguish you've suffered. It has helped me beyond descripton.

What an uplifting book! Spirit of Unconditional Love. I feel it could be life changing. Really understanding such words as patience, kindness, gentleness, compassion and strength made me realize that the few problems I thought I had just disappeared and were replaced with solutions and peace. I could have done without all the numbers in the book but overlooked it. Thanks, Jeanne, I know I will be reading this book over and over.

This is a wonderful handbook for anyone seeking to discover and pursue the spirit of unconditional love, THE S.O.U.L. as Sanner calls it. Sanner writes from a Christian perspective, and Jesus certainly embodied unconditional love, but she embraces all faiths. There are some wonderful re-examinations of Jesus' teachings as viewed through the lens of unconditional love, as well as many parables and sayings from other traditions. She even uses some modern movies to illustrate her points.----------The book is written clearly, beautifully and concisely. The layout is primarily in outline form which makes it easy to read each idea, and can facilitate discussions with others.--------There are many, many nuggets and insights that were meaningful to me in the book. Some of my favorites are:****What is the definition of unconditional love - Sanner has a wonderful definition. ****How it is possible to forgive someone even if that person was wrong ****How do I love someone and yet not be attached ****How I can change emotions I don't want like anger or fear in a REAL way - from the inside out, not just repressing the emotion! ****How 'bad' things work together for the good-----------She presents logical, cohesive explorations of these points plus many more.---------The book is fun and easy to read. You can read it quickly to get an overview of the ideas, or more carefully and thoughtfully to absorb all the amazing truths in this book. As someone who has read many spritual books, I enjoyed this one immensely. It compiles many universal truths, but Sanner presents them in a truly unique and understandable way. Once I picked it up, I wanted to read more and more!

¿For those who are seeking a spiritual path toward peace and joy, this book is a must read. ¿For those who have found a spiritual path toward peace and joy, this book is a must read. ¿For those who have been turned off, given up, and fallen off all spiritual paths, this book is a must read. ¿For those who want peace and joy in their lives but have never really tried to find a spiritual path, this book is a must read. As an adult who has always professed to being a Christian, I can relate personally to all four of the above qualifiers. After reading, contemplating, and reflecting on Jeanne Sanner¿s thought-provoking and enlightening book, The Spirit of Unconditional Love: A Handbook, I can now understand and feel the profound peace and joy of God¿s grace and unconditional love. I was ready for this book when it came along, and it has truly made a difference in my life. This is a book that can appeal to all readers regardless of religious faiths and/or beliefs. Written in a unique handbook format, I found this to be a fairly easy read, however, it is not simple in any respect. The concepts evoke much self-reflection and are delivered through a variety of parables, anecdotes, activities, and very personal experiences. The handbook style is perfect for study groups and book clubs. I appreciate how this gifted author includes a section called ¿Fascinating Things to Read,¿ which she strategically places before the end of the book rather than as an addendum. For a change, I didn¿t just quickly peruse an author¿s list of suggested reading I actually read every word of Sanner¿s synopses and comments about her recommendations for further reading. As a result, I know which additional readings I plan to pursue. I want to add that Sanner¿s work should be appealing to all readers because of her entertaining style of writing, using figurative language, metaphors, analogies, and humor. I realize there will be readers who won¿t agree with all of Sanner¿s philosophies and concepts, but that¿s what makes this book so thought-provoking. As for me, it has brought me to a place of peace and joy on my spiritual path, and I believe it will do the same for countless other readers. It¿s one thing to talk about and even to understand the concepts of unconditional love and forgiveness, however, it¿s another thing to always apply them. Jeanne Sanner¿s book inspires and motivates me to want to try.

Jeanne Sanner rings the bell of truth with such clarity in her book THE SPIRIT OF UNCONDITIONAL LOVE, the hum of resonance remains long after closing it's cover. Jeanne spoke to me from the mind and the heart, touching places I may not have explored on my own. Her easily accessible guide to achieving spiritual consciousness makes spiritual transformation seem attainable. It's a handbook that I will reread over and over, and I cherish it as a clear guide to direct my way.
