SImple Truths by Kent Nerburn is a simple book. However, the message is more than simple. Kent has a way of summing up the important issues in life into a clear and consise message. This is what I would describe as a self-help or motivational book. The author covers subjects in a few pages where whole books arte written that don't offer any more insight. I really enjoyed this book, in particular the chapters on possessions, giving and death. He covers a lot more. There are very few books that I would honestly say I would read twice but this is one of them. The obvious spirituallity that Nerburn has shines through in this work. It's a short read and well woth it. ( )

It is a small treasure of wisdom about life's deepest issues. From the Book: Life is but a dream we renew each day. It is up to us to infuse this dream with light, and to cultivate, as best we are able, the ways and habits of love.… (more)
