As a deep thinker, and with beautiful understanding, Palmer takes high-order reflection and makes it applicable in one's daily life. A wonderful book to help one discern one's unique sense of meaning in God's love.

DO NOT waste your time or your money on this book. It is definitely not a Christian book, but heavily New Age spiritualism, pro-homosexual, sacredness of self and nature etc. God is thrown in here and there, probably only to expand the market of the book. I won't even give this book away; it's to the trash heap with this one.

This is not a very good book. He refers to God as he/she. That borders on blasphemy. The only redeeming value is that he encourages people to look to themselves rather than others for their calling in life.

Great book! He deals humorously and compassionately with the issue of finding one's calling in life. It's great to hear that I'm not the only one who's taken detours along the way.
