Review: No Problem: Turning the Next Corner in Your Spiritual Life

No Problem: Turning the Next Corner in Your Spiritual Life

About the Book:
With total book sales of more than 200,000 copies, spiritual teacher Robert J. Wicks brings his characteristic warmth and insight to his newest book, No Problem: Turning the Next Corner in Your Spiritual Life, an "inner workshop" for the soul. He shows readers that personal transformation is attainable through a simple, day-by-day process of identifying and turning the next corner of his or her spiritual life.
For Robert Wicks, forward motion in the spiritual life is "no problem." All it takes is the right perspective and a little bit of knowledge—both of which he provides through his book’s three-part structure: twenty lessons, three doorways, and thirty daily exercises. Wicks’s twenty lessons are bite-sized and practical, and he shows how the two great commandments (love God, love others) and the parable of the Good Samaritan form doorways to spiritual riches. In part three, Wicks provides the tools and coaching for readers to conduct their own inner workshops. In these thirty spiritual exercises, Wicks invites his readers to acknowledge, accept, and start where they are, employing simple practices and assuring that God’s grace will carry them around the next spiritual corner.

My Comments:
Like most books dealing with the spiritual life, this one doesn't have any ground-breaking insights.  It doesn't tell you how you can live life on your terms, ignoring God and then being able to turn Him on when desired.  Robert Wicks quotes the oldies but goodies and suggests reading short passages in the book and then living with them for a day.  Becoming more spiritual should make you a better person, more the person God wants you to be and this book strikes me as a gentle invitation and tour guide.  Grade:  B.

I'd like to thank the publisher for making a review copy available vial NetGalley.
