I LOVE the book, Jacob the Baker. When I am stressed out, or over-busy, or depressed, I can take a few minutes to read a quick story or two. They remind me that there is a possibility of peace. Or I can steal the time to read it cover to cover and find peace. ( )

I read this book at least twice each year. Jacob the Baker reminds me of a million reasons to have faith, hope, love, and charity. ( )

Such an easy read - and very thought-provoking. I just happened upon it in a used book store and bought it on a whim... some of the best discoveries occur that way!! ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 034536662X, Paperback)

This wise little fable tells the story of a baker named Jacob, who scribbled his thoughts no bit of paper as he waited for his bread to rise. One day, a small paper was baked into a loaf and gradually people came by for bread and wisdom, and Jacob's sayings became known. Now they have been gathered into this gentle book for all to share.
