Black (The Blessing of Adversity), a retired U.S. Navy admiral and current chaplain to the United States Senate, aims this straightforward and intelligent motivational handbook at helping readers strengthen their spiritual practices in order to navigate lifes turbulent times. Seven overarching sections with such titles as Prepare to Be Sent, Thrive in a Predatory World, and Persevere through Rejection each include several chapters composed of Fearless Principles and a closing Purposeful Prayer. Drawing illustrations from the scriptures, contemporary culture, his own impoverished childhood, his Navy career, and his current work, Black conveys his message in an accessible and often thought-provoking manner: Real love celebrates diversity. In fact, if we dont like diversity, we probably wont like heaven. Expounding on the Fearless Principle: Pray with adoration, he writes: How would you feel if you were a parent whose child only spoke to you when he or she wanted something?
