    This book was written in the 1940's, just after WW2. I thought it was so interesting because of the content (MANY incredible & useful insights that still apply today) and also interesting as a historical look at that time period.

    I've read this book (1st edition) a few times. I love how he talks about "questing inward" is not easy but one must be consistent & disciplined with practice. He also speaks of loving thyself properly..... I've read this book (1st edition) a few times.

    It's become my bible. I consider myself fortunate to have discovered this book. Chapter three--Love thyself properly--caused me to break into tears and I will confess to having read the pages out loud and silently. It's become my bible.

    This book has aged better than I expected. Got turned onto it via a contemporary review. I think his final conclusions are probably wrong about modern America defining a new relationship with God that doesn't include a surrender but along the way he says very interesting things about grief, self and fear. He makes references to Menninger's "Man Against Himself" and Kardiner's "Psychological Frontiers of Society" that I'll need to look into. Worth digging up a copy!

    Rabbi Liebman had me most of the way through the book. Psychology working with faith based religion works wonderfully for peace of mind. It describes how and the way this happens in a manner that is most readable, that is until he came to the place where he called believers "co-workers" with God. Sorry. No way. We are definitely NOT equal to God as a co-worker. That kind of defeats the purpose in believing in a god of any kind never mind God. It was all downhill from there.

    It honestly took me a long time reading this book, in spite of its insight. Nevertheless, Liebman advises the reader to not only look at staid religion, but also read about psychology so that he could understand and interpret himself better. He prefigures Becker's Denial of Death's immortality project, which was clairvoyant of him. Self-understanding, bolstered by psychology, rather than self-condemnation is the way to one's peace of mind. It honestly took me a long time reading this book, in spite of its insight.

    A classic from 1946 on coming to peace with your self and your emotions. I'd never read much psychology before, and this book really connected to me.

    A must read if you have any appreciation for both religion and psychology. This book reads like present day.
