Overview

Ancient Secrets: Using the Stories of the Bible to Improve Our Everyday Lives by Levi Meier, Rabbi Levi Meier

Learn to Apply the Timeless Lessons of Jewish Wisdom Writings to Improve Your Daily Life

Drawing on a broad range of Jewish wisdom writings, distinguished rabbi and psychologist Levi Meier takes a thoughtful, wise and fresh approach to showing us how to apply the stories of the Bible to our everyday lives and let them work their inspirational magic. The courage of Abraham, who left his early life behind and chose a new, more difficult and more rewarding path; the ability of Joseph to forgive his brothers—the quests and conflicts of the Bible are still relevant, and still have the power to inform and change our lives.
