Overview

Jonah the Woodchopper: Encouraging Stories for Finding Your Way Through the Forest of Life by Joshua Rubin

Featuring parables and coaching exercises, this timeless and inspiring story collection encourages people to develop the motivation, positive thinking, and fortitude they need to improve their lives. Jonah the Woodchopper is a man with a troubled past: difficulties with his father, a failed marriage, and a drinking problem that led him to leave society and live in the forest. The book begins with his decision to rejoin society and reveals his stories of encouragement and the wisdom he acquired as he worked through his own challenges. The tale of Jonah’s life unfolds with stories that include “The Test of Broken Promises,” “Becoming Your List,” “Seeing in the Dark,” and “Battling Wolves.” Each story has a moral and is followed by a short exercise to help readers apply it to their own lives. His challenges are universal; readers will find them useful for navigating life’s complexities and complications and overcoming them to live fully and contently.

This is a wonderful book, full of inspiring and educational stories. I strongly recommend it for anyone looking to add a spark of spirituality to their lives.  The author takes us on a journey of self discovery and enlightenment. The exercises at the end of each chapter are especially helpful in translating the story to our own lives. -- daniel kern
