Thresholds: Book Review

Hello friends!

I finished reading Thresholds by Sherre Hirsch several months ago, and I haven't been able to write a good review for it.  Let me first tell you what this book is about.  

Sherre Hirsch uses "thresholds"to describe transitions in life.  These transitions can be anything from graduating college to starting a new job, or from starting a relationship to building a family.  Life is full of changes and crossing the "threshold" into a new "room" in your life can be intimidating.  

Sherre Hirsch is a rabbi, and she ties many references from the Old Testament into this book.  Unfortunately for me, the second chapter of the book, "Faith in God is Not Required," was not a philosophy I could get behind.  I feel like from that chapter onward, my view was skewed.  

With so many changes in my life, I thought this book would be comforting, and offer insight to devotions I could do to help me feel better about change.  This is not the case with this book.  Rabbi Hirsch gives several examples of how your life will change whether your like it or not.  I am not a person to bash someone else's writing, so I would recommend that you make your own decision about Thresholds.  Personally, I did not find it as helpful in my transitions as I wanted, but it may very well speak to someone else who need is different than mine. 

How do you handle changes in your life?
Like I said, let me know!


***Note: I received this book from Blogging for Books in exchange for my review.
