Robert H. Schuller
|Number of pages:||224|
This is Robert Schuller like you've never heard before. Though it echoes the extraordinary insightfulness and encouragement you have come to count on from Dr. Schuller, never before has he written a book so personal, so moving. This book is about adversity, tragedy, despair. But it's also about hope, joy, and eternal victory in Jesus.
For the first time, he discusses many of the difficult events of his life. He provides positive examples to show readers how he got through them and how they can emerge victoriously also.
Pastor and motivational speaker Robert H. Schuller is perhaps most renowned for his weekly "Hour of Power" church service, broadcast worldwide from the glass Crystal Cathedral in Garden Grove, California. In Turning Hurts into Halos, Schuller uses his storytelling skills and personal anecdotes to explain the spiritual role of pain and suffering. "Hurts" can ultimately make us stronger, more faithful people, crowning us with angelic halos, Schuller claims. He refers to his wife's recent heart surgery, his own brain surgery, his daughter losing a leg in a motorcycle accident, and the humiliation he endured after being wrongfully accused and sued for assaulting a flight attendant (he was acquitted). Through his personal pain and by helping others who have endured much worse shame and loss, Schuller has learned the value of holding onto hope, turning to God, and gaining perspective on one's pain.
