The Blessing of Adversity-Barry C Black

This is a wonderful book on how you can turn your most difficult times into positive times. Dr Barry Black, chaplain of the U.S. Senate presents 3 different sections in his books to lead you through the process.
First is "Mastering the Basics" which is like a basic guide to realizing our troubles, facing them and then at the end of each section a way of dealing with each type of trouble(he has an action plan list which I thought was most helpful!).
Secondly he shares how to avoid sources of trouble if you can. This section also included at the end of each chapter the action plan list. Than the third part, in two powerful chapters, sums up how you can turn your adversity into advantage.
This book is not a "preachy" type book but one that shows that Dr Black has been there , done that and truly relate to the subject. I would highly recommend this book.

Tyndale House Publishers has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book for review.
