Product Description

    Deep feelings of depression and giving up hope are often part of the human experience. Second Chances explores strategies that serve as models for a more positive and optimistic life, transforming tragic cir­cum­stances into a force for healing. Drawing upon years as a clinical therapist and spiri­tual chaplain, Rabbi Levi Meier (author of the best-selling book, Ancient Secrets) paints a fresh approach to the Bible and draws relevancy and sage advice from an ancient text.

Rabbi Levi Meier, Ph.D., is Jewish Chaplain of Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. He is a licensed clinical psychologist and a marriage, family and child therapist. He has authored numerous books on psychology and spirituality. His award-winning book, Ancient Secrets, was nominated as a finalist in the National Books for a Better Life Awards in the Spiritual category.


Praise for Second Chances:

"The beautiful story of Ruth comes alive in this newest book by Rabbi Levi Meier. Gounded in his Biblical schol­arship as well as in the writings of Viktor Frankl and Carl Jung, Rabbi Meier presents a model for what real second chances can be. Using anecdotes from clients he has en­coun­tered in his role as chaplain and clinical psychologist, he insightfully reveals how the past need not necessarily pre­dict the future. With hope, commitment and a living re­la­tionship with God, a second chance can be used to achieve anything Ã???? even something that is seemingly fixed, closed and impossible."
-Kathleen M. Wulf, Ph.D., Professor Emeri­tus at USC

"A wonderful mix of deep spiritual insight and practical wisdom. Rabbi Meier’s profound observations are at once illuminating and inspirational. Ruth like you never before experienced."
-Rabbi Dr. Reuven P. Bulka, founder of the Journal of Psychology and Judaism 

Dr. Meier’s wise and compassionate rendering of this ancient biblical tale provides us with a profound lesson in optimism."
-Estelle Frankel, author of Sacred Therapy
