Outline Review"In 1955, I accepted a call from the Classis of California of the Reformed Church in America to establish a church in central Orange County. Certainly the scope off the ministry that resulted is something no one could have predicted from its all-too-humble beginnings." This kind of grand yet understated tone pervades the autobiography of Robert Schuller, My Journey: From an Iowa Farm to a Cathedral of Dreams. Schuller's life began in 1926, "at the dead-end of a dirt road that had no name and no number." He was the fifth child in a poor, conservative family, and he grew into an earnest young man whose hard work and discipline fueled a rapid rise to success and power. Schuller's account of his personal life is both idealistic and candid (of his wedding night, Schuller writes, "The explosion of true joy and unalloyed affection was our reward for having waited to offer our virginity, each to the other!"). And his descriptions of his seminary years, his early ministries in the Midwest, and his move to California illustrate the development of his popular "Possibility Thinking" message, which built on the foundation of Norman Vincent Peale's The Power of Positive Thinking. Schuller's influence on American Christianity has been immense. He has muffled the doctrine of sinfulness in favor of an optimistic message about joy, success, and possibility. And although the reader may wish at times the author had used fewer exclamation marks and given himself more to circumspection, My Journey is an engrossing spin on the classic Horatio Alger tale. --Paul Power
Dr. Robert H. Schuller's career has spanned more than five decades, and his ministry of hope has touched the hearts and souls of millions around the world. From one great story to the next, this disarmingly honest autobiography shows us a side of the great preacher that we haven't seen before. Here are stories of the events, people, and encounters that shaped his inspiring life and made him the ultimate possibility thinker.
Stepping down from the pulpit, Schuller evokes the strict Dutch Calvinist culture of his youth, his early sermons and successes evangelizing from the roof of the snack bar at the rented drive-in theater where his ministry took off, and how he was shunned by traditionalists in his denomination for taking Christian preaching where it had never gone before. Dr. Schuller shares insights on how his positive thinking philosophy helped him through the difficult moments of his life, and recounts meetings with great world teachers such as preachers Norman Vincent Peale and Billy Graham, psychiatrist Karl Menninger, and global leaders Mikhail Gorbachev and Bill Clinton. Schuller shares his own spiritual journey as he reflects on his personal life and relationships, charting how he blended the good news of the Gospel with the best of modern psychology. My Journey is a genuinely inspirational and quintessentially American story.
