Fulfill your Divine Potential for Yourself and for the WorldBook - 2014
Among books that discern people's reason for living, this one is exceptional for its interfaith perspective and clear text readily accessible to people of all backgrounds. Reverend Poos-Benson mines the wisdom of the great spiritual heroes -- Jesus, Buddha, Krishna, Mohammed, Lao Tzu -- to reveal a pattern in how God works in the world. He believes that God has sent us to fulfill a unique destiny; in order to find meaning in life, we must understand why we have been sent and then fulfill that purpose. Having been one of the first responders after the Columbine school shootings, he is well qualified for his focus on the thorny issue of great trauma, empowering readers to become aware of how the divine is moving through their lives in spite of tremendous suffering and evil. He also provides questions for individuals and groups to ponder, resulting in a vibrant text that leads to healing and self-transformation.
