Product description

Amazon.com Review

The potential danger in this book's title is the assumption that Peck is rehashing the same material he wrote in The Road Less Traveled. Thankfully, this isn't so. Although he touches upon the same themes that appear in most everything he writes--narcissism vs. self-love and good vs. evil--Peck is clearly speaking to the crucial dilemmas of the 1990s, such as overly simplistic thinking, institutionalized racism and sexism, as well as the media's despairing vision. Now that Peck has reached the maturity of 60, his narrative is less know-it-all than in the days of yore. Yet, ironically, his decades of research, writing, and human service give him more authority than ever.

From Booklist

With this book, the hands-down most popular psychological and spiritual growth adviser concludes what he calls his Road Trilogy, the previous volumes of which are perennial best-sellers The Road Less Traveled (1978) and Further Along the Road Less Traveled (1993). One need not have read either of those to fully appreciate--indeed, to profit--from this book. Peck very cogently conflates psychiatry and Christianity in order to persuade readers that they are never going to be perfect, nor is the world going to be perfect, but that they can live responsibly and helpfully for both themselves and others if they will live thoughtfully and commit themselves to growing toward God. In the three parts of this book, Peck specifically counsels readers on rising above "simplism" by learning to live thoughtfully, on making choices in everyday life, and on pursuing the "science" of God. What finally makes Peck so compelling is his stress on complexity and paradox. He concedes, for instance, that rebelling against religion is often fundamental to continuing the journey to spiritual wholeness. "In the end," he assures, "all things point to God," who for him is, to paraphrase the hymnodist, the deep where all our thoughts are drowned--and glorified. Ray Olson
