Overview

Robert A. Schuller explores the various ways individuals lose or experience interference with their connection to God. He explains that emotions such as shame, regret, fear, and disappointment can stand in the way of the intimate association God wants with His children.
The good news is that when His people are struggling, God stays close. There are many ways to reestablish a dynamic connection with Him. Schuller calls these "Connection Corrections" and leads readers through identifying communication barriers and how to break them. Each chapter delves into the reasons readers fail to connect with God, how to begin repairing the broken wires, and the life-altering benefits of restoring a positive, power-filled relationship with Him. Readers who feel adrift from God will no find that no barrier is too big to keep them from a close, loving relationship with Him.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Inspirational author Schuller offers readers who want to respond to adversity with, and through, faith a fine primer on pressing toward God despite pain and problems. Schuller, whose newest ministry is the television and Internet outlet ComStar Media, shares with readers the circumstances of his painful departure from leadership at the Crystal Cathedral founded by his father, Robert H. Schuller, and explains how this life-altering detour caused him to re-examine the foundations of his faith. Stronger from the experience, the author encourages fellow Christians to seek out God especially when life is darkest and confusion greatest. Readers will find solid resources: practical suggestions as well as numerous inspirational stories of real men and women who successfully faced down the giants in their lives. Schuller specifically addresses such issues as guilt, shame, regret, anxiety, disappointment and fear. In each chapter he offers fresh perspective, renewed hope and fresh faith tools for those going through hardship, as well as strong reminders that God is always present and never fails. (Nov.)

This book, divided into six sections comprising a total of 30 chapters, covers life challenges in a logical sequence. With well selected true stories of ways other people have found to strengthen their faith or find God as their last resort, the author takes us or groups along a path in solving the smallest to the most difficult of life challenges with the help of God's Grace. Rev Dr Robert Anthony Schuller is not "preaching" here from on high; in fact, only the good references inserted for further reading and the guide and questions posed at each chapter's end, remind the reader that this author is a learned preacher and more a story-teller, an historian type with an eye always on God! Not a novel. Not a sermon. A book you will want to think about and relate it to yourself, your family and friends. And in the end, you will know that leaning into God is not saying you cannot do it but rather that you can do anything, by trusting and looking to God for His guidance. Finally, if you do not need the wisdom of this book, you will at least find the words you may need to help someone else sometime and they will thank you! Jan-Michael Wildeman
