Publisher's Description

The inspiring autobiography of the world-renowned minister and revered self-help giant whose positive thinking techniques have bettered the lives of millions of people

In his 95 years, Norman Vincent Peale made a profound difference. The son of a minister in Lynchburg, Ohio, he went on to preach the Lord’s word at Manhattan’s now-famous Marble Collegiate Church, where he served as pastor for 52 years and oversaw the church’s growth from 600 members to more than 5,000. He had a popular radio program for more than half a century, and appeared regularly on television. But perhaps his most lasting and powerful contribution was as author of the mega-bestseller The Power of Positive Thinking, the groundbreaking book that provided new guidance and hope and changed countless lives for generations throughout the world.
 
The True Joy of Positive Living is the inspiring true story of a humble man who started out poor in a small Midwestern town and rose to become one of the most famous and influential American figures of the 20th century—a man of God who was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the country’s highest civilian honor, by President Ronald Reagan in 1984. Together with this wife Ruth, Dr. Peale founded the Peale Center for Christian Living and Guideposts magazine to ensure that his messages of self-confidence and the power of faith would continue to guide millions around the world even after his death. In his own uplifting words, Dr. Peale shares the story of a remarkable life lived with dignity and purpose. This stirring chronicle of an extraordinary soul—his unwavering service to the Lord and his remarkable development of the principles of positivity that had a life-altering effect on so many—will be an inspiration to all who read it.

Editorial Reviews

"In this account of a life full of achievement, it is remarkable how the basic simplicity and humility of goodness of the man shine through." —Arthur Gordon
 
"I have often thought: Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we could catch, preserve, and bottle the magic essence of Dr. Peale; then produce and market this elixir to humankind. Well, this is it, between the covers of this modest, warmly written book by the great man himself." —Art Linkletter
 
"All of us who have had the privilege of knowing Norman Peale have been improved by the experience. Read The True Joy of Positive Living and you’ll think of this one-of-a-kind man as a first-name friend. Any time thereafter when you need counsel or comfort, you can return to this book and you and he will triumph together over whatever may befall." —Paul Harvey
 
"Now at last the witness of one of the world’s Christian giants! History will never be the same because of his positive influences. Read it and be inspired!" —Robert H. Schuller
