Fifty years ago Robert H. Schuller founded a church on the idea that with faith, focus, and follow-through all of our dreams can become realities. A tireless advocate of this positive message, he built the Crystal Cathedral into one of America's most popular and beloved centers of worship. Dedicating his life to both his family and his ministry, Dr. Schuller has gone on to teach millions the power of belief. A gifted and moving storyteller, he now offers the wisdom he's gained over a lifetime of optimism and devotion. In this personal and inspirational book, Schuller shows us how the universal principles that have formed his life and his work can guide ours as well. Starting with the message of "Don't Throw Away Tomorrow!" this landmark book discusses powerful and universal ideals such as starting with optimism, choosing positive values, keeping focused, clearing the channels of communication, and—most important—looking to the Ultimate Authority.
For fifty years Americans have been listening to Schuller's thoughtful guidance and have been inspired by his love of humanity and God. Don't Throw Away Tomorrow is a culmination of his wisdom, delivered directly to the reader—a tribute to the power of possibility thinking.
Dr. Robert H. Schuller is the founder of the Crystal Cathedral in Garden Grove, California, a congregation he started fifty years ago from a drive-in movie theater. He is the host of Hour of Power, a weekly television show that, with over ten million viewers, has grown into the most watched religious program in the country. Dr. Schuller has written more than thirty books, including My Journey; If It's Going to Be, It's Up to Me; Prayer: My Soul's Adventure with God; Power Thoughts: Achieve Your True Potential Through Power Thinking; Tough Times Never Last, But Tough People Do!; The Be-Happy Attitudes; and Hours of Power.
Schuller believes in being optimistic, looking for positive solutions, perhaps compromising creatively, and challenging assumptions that block you, and search for assumptions that will advance your goal. The book is written from an optimistic viewpoint and has examples to illustrate the use of these theories. This author has written over 30 books, graduated from a theology school, became a clergyman, and built a church with a weekly television show to impact people with a positive healing faith.
The main points are being optimistic, choosing positive values, staying focused on your dreams, and using faith. "Faith is a delivery power; the value comes in the product or human values it delivers". The author shows by his own life how these theories have inspired his entire public life.
I found this a very inspirational and helpful book. The positive outlook described is extremely motivating and useful to others. It is well written with excellent examples. Ministers, church workers, and ordinary Christians will benefit and enjoy reading this book. -- Dorothy Wilson, Christian Book Previews.com
