Anything self help has to have the magic number twelve in it somewhere  Jan 30, 2007
Twelve....twelve....its like a mantra. I'm still waiting for numerologist Calypso Louis Farakahn's contribution to the field.

Other than the tiresome extension of stretching some "keys" to fit the Procrustean bed of twelve, the healthy living goals outlined here actually have some pretty ancient philosophical and spiritual roots, sometimes mapping with Ignatian exercises and other ancient Catholic spiritual disciplines. So of those smarmy self-help books that are churned out with such regularity, this one isn't bad and is actually classicism updated with a fresh voice.

For those who'd like to start with some easy ways for whole, healthy living, here are three: go to Mass every day, go to Confession once a week, and keep the Church's feasts and fasts. You'd be surprised how rich your life will become by following the Church calendar. The false gods in your life will fall away.
Join in the feast of heaven and earth in joy and compassion  Sep 27, 1998
I've had the opportunity to meet Dr Callahan at his workshops. This book tells some of his best stories and reflects on them to the deeper issues troubling Christians today. Dr Callahan is gentle with our human human weaknesses and yet provides us with a cloud of witnesses for getting the ministry well done. He insists that we focus on the things we have fun doing well. A wonderfully Catholic and Jesuitical notion from a Protestant writer.

His selection of the 12 keys is a familiar format for those familiar with his writing, but he takes an entirely new tack with this book. He invites the Christian (though certainly his invitation is not exclusive) to a self-diagnosis of life and service. Having identified one's strengths, Dr Callahan provides 4 helpful ways to continue building that strength. Of course, all of the keys are interlocked, and one will rarely make progress in one area without making progress on at least some of the others. But Dr Callahan's focus on simply choosing 1 or 2 keys keeps us from most Christians' tendencies to perfectionism. All in all, an excellent and stimulating read. Easily done in a night or two, but food for plenty more after that.
