Not a Christian Book!
May 12, 2011
I purchased this book thinking it was an encouragement to the stay-at-home Mom, from a Christian perspective. This book is actually a collection of quotes, poems, vignettes, and stories from many different authors who hold diametrically opposed spiritual beliefs. One portion of the book quotes scripture about the different priorities Mary and Martha had while Jesus was visiting. The very next section is written by a believer of Vedanta who gave her own interpretation of this scripture, and twisted its meaning to suit her own agenda by adding an entire postscript to the scripture. There are also pages with foul language and political correctness. The worldview of this book's editor is definitely that Christianity is only 1 of many legitimate beliefs.
Even if you are OK with all of the above, this book still rates poorly for quality. The book itself is not well organized, lumping the pieces into broad categories, but with no real thread tying it all together. The messages of the different authors also tend to contradict one another, leaving the reader wondering what the point of the book was. The last thing about this book is the 13 pages at the end advertising the other titles by this publisher on topics from Earth-Based Spirituality to Islam to Buddhism to Global Spiritual Perspectives.
