Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

Speaking straight to men who are striving for serenity or trying to maintain emotionally and spiritually balanced lives, these daily touchstones offer affirmations for intimacy, integrity, and spirituality.

Don't let life discourage you; everyone who got where he is had to begin where he was.--R.L. EvansOne cannot always be a hero, but one can always be a man Johann Wolfgang von Goethe tells us, but sometimes simply being a man can be a mighty struggle. Take heart from this companionable book of daily meditations, a year's worth of friendly words to cheer you on your way.Speaking straight to men who are striving for serenity or trying to maintain emotionally and spiritually balanced lives, these daily touchstones begin with quotations from sources as varied as William Shakespeare, Wendell Berry, Michael Spinks, and Woody Allen and conclude with affirmations that underscore the lessons of intimacy, integrity and spirituality. They explore the masculine role of lover or spouse, father or friend and, like a helping hand extended, ease the daily strain of making a man's way.

   purchased this for my father because I love the hazelden foundation series
I bought this for my father because I love the Hazelden Foundation series. He seemed to enjoy it, but I am not sure that he values these types of books as much as I do. i did not read this book.

   Touchstones: A Book of Meditations for Men
This daily collection of 365 excellent readings has been a favorite of mine for many many years. Its themes are always related to recovery and are appropriate for men in any recovery program. The copy I purchased from Amazon last month was brand new, completely flawless and exactly like my original from so many years ago. I am impressed and grateful.

   Spectacular
I belong to a men's fellowship that uses this book in its weekly meetings. It is amazing how often the daily reading topic fits into the conversations we had that day. Very good work, very nice.

   Excellent meditations for any man
It addresses many of the problems we face as men with a masculine and practical approach to spirituality. The entries are arranged with a relevant quote at the beginning, a short meditation on the quote and finally a short affirmation as a conclusion. The quotes are drawn from many traditions, both religious and secular. The meditations are succinct and can serve as a jumping off point for your own thoughts. The affirmations offer a practical way of putting the whole thing into practice. I have a paperback copy and the Kindle edition as well, and I read it just about every day.

   A gift for oneself and others
It lives next to his chair in the den, and he spends about 30 minutes with it in the morning, while I am still asleep. He has commented that it provides comfort without being sugary, and he values the thoughtfulness of each entry, the low-key approach and the wide range of quoted sources. I've logged in and believe that it would be helpful to anyone, regardless of spiritual orientation or lack of the same. He recently bought a new copy to send to a friend who is having serious problems in his life, and we hope its calm wisdom will help him as well.

   Excellent meditations for any man
This book is for men in recovery, but it could apply to any man. It addresses many of the problems that men face with a practical approach to spirituality. The entries are arranged with a relevant quote at the start, a short meditation on the quote, and finally a short affirmation as a conclusion. The quotes come from many traditions both religious and secular, the meditations are succinct and can serve as a jumping off point for your own thoughts, and the affirmations offer a practical way of putting the whole thing into practice. I read it every day in paperback and the e- book edition. When I travel, the Kindle makes carrying it easy.

   A gift for oneself and others
My husband has been using this book for about ten years and has found it very helpful. He spends about 30 minutes with it in the morning while I'm still asleep, next to his chair in the den. He reads the daily entry and meditates on the suggestions. He values the thoughtfulness of each entry, the low- key approach, and the wide range of sources quoted, and he commented that it provides comfort without being sugarcoated. I believe that it would be helpful to anyone, regardless of their spiritual orientation. He bought a new copy to send to a friend who is having serious problems in his life, and we hope that it will help him.

   My brother loved this
This was a gift for my brother. It arrived on time. It was a great choice. I wanted it to be a compliment to the AA book, but not redundant or too God centered, just something thought provoking that would inspire growth and comfort in the hard times. He reads out of it every day.
