Book Review : 10 Secrets to Life’s Biggest Challenges

I recently completed Peter Lord’s new book, “10 Secrets to Life’s Biggest Challenges: How You Can Prepare For a Better Tomorrow”. Something about the title drew me in. I mean, everyone has challenges. Life is full of them. Who would not want to become better prepared in dealing with these challenges? Lord provides a solid framework to overcoming life’s major challenges. With a healthy and balanced mixture of scripture, personal experience, and practical wisdom, Lord has presented a deep subject with ease and clarity. The ten challenges are as follows:

1. Making Decisions
2. Overcoming Temptations
3. Developing Relationships
4. Resolving Conflicts
5. Healing Your Hurts
6. Adjusting Your Attitudes
7. Managing Money
8. Trusting through Trials
9. Submitting to Authorities
10.Preparing for Death

Lord presents these ten challenges broadly on the front end, but then narrows them down by giving specific steps, instructions, and keys to overcoming each challenge. Each chapter (challenge) also contains study and reflection questions that further allow the reader to understand the make-up and pitfalls of each challenge. I am glad I picked up this book. Although this book is written for a Christian audience, the lessons and principles are universal. A great work, one that I will use in the future.
