17 quotes from Joshua Loth Liebman: 'Maturity is achieved when a person accepts life as full of tension. How many human beings go through the world frozen with rage against life! This deeply hidden inner anger may be the product of hurt pride or of real frustration in office, factory, clinic, or home. Whatever may be the cause of our frozen rage (which is the inevitable mother of depression), the great word of hope today is that this rage can be conquered and drained.

I have written this book in the conviction that social peace can never be permanently achieved so long as individuals engage in civil war with themselves.

In "Peace of Mind," Rabbi Liebman tries to present some answers that have proved helpful to him about the universal human dilemmas of conscience, love, fear, grief, and God - crucial problems that present themselves in every kind of society, and, he believes, will present themselves as long as man is man. Whether under capitalism, socialism, or communism, men and women will still face the purely personal and profoundly individual issues of life and death as well as the tangled interpersonal relations of parent and child, brother and sister, husband and wife. Personal experience plus rich and varied contacts in the author's ministry led him to believe that a book written by a religionist explaining just what modern psychology has discovered about human beings, why we sometimes hate ourselves and hate others, why we grow afraid, why we lose faith in life and in God, might be of real help to perplexed moderns. This science also tells us what we can do to change ourselves and our mental attitudes in relation to our own personalities and in interrelations with other human beings. "Peace of Mind" attempts to distill the helpful insights about human nature that psychology has discovered and the encouraging news from the scientific clinic about man's infinite capacity to change and improve himself, as well as to correlate these latest scientific discoveries with the truest religious insights and goals of the ages.

I first ran across the name of this book, and the name of its author, in the book called "Good Grief" by Granger E. Westberg. Having gotten some value out of Westberg's brief book, but wanting more information, I initially bought this book just for the one chapter that Westberg's book said was so great. And yeah, once I had the "Peace of Mind" book in hand, I found that one chapter, alone, ("Grief's Slow Wisdom") made this book's price well worth it to me.

Found a marvelous quote by Rabbi Liebman in "GOOD GRIEF". I decided to search to see if he wrote anything else. Turns out the quote was from the only book he wrote - PEACE OF MIND. He died at age 41 in 1946! His writing is just as fresh and meaningful today as it was one year after the end of WWI. I have been through PEACE OF MIND once and keep it around to reread when I have a little bit of time. Wonderful thinker. He makes you think and consider things before you proceed. I am very happy that I was led to this book.

Written before Freudian analysis became popular in this country, Rabbi Liebman ' s book is a plea for psychoanalysis and introspection under the aegis of a trained therapist. It is well- written and clear, but it's thesis is dated. He was a great man, who foresaw the contemporary need for help in the individual's search for himself.

There are two important ways to describe this great book:
1. A review of mental health & personal growth from the late 1940's, a time when psychology was emerging onto the American landscape in a big way. And psychology was rubbing shoulders with religion. Sort of the new kid on the block. Liebman respects both, yet provides clear distinctions.
2. Even as 2014 comes to a close, Peace of Mind still does its job. If the reader wishes to gain tremendous insight into a healthier outlook on life, this is the way to do it. Liebman, with plenty of backup, describes in detail how and why a gentler, calmer, and more peaceful way of life is the way to go. Let me correct myself, it more than does its job. Anyone caught up in the swift current of today's world, unable to experience "peace of mind" must stop everything they are doing right now and read this book. Amen.

Excellent book, "Peace Of Mind" by Joshua Loth Liebman, that I will have to read again. Even though this has happened to some extent, it is fascinating to read this book. In it, the author is calling for an alignment, common respect, and better understanding between religion and psychology. But the book goes further in getting us to look at ourselves in different areas. It almost seems impossible to not have these two great forces that help mankind working together. One of the greatest quotes on tolerance I ever read "I do not agree with what you say, but I defend your right to say it to the death" is in this book. Just got an original copy of the follow up book "Hope for Man". Looking forward to reading it.

Joshua L. Liebman, Rabbi of Temple Israel, Boston, MA, wrote what has been considered one of the very first "self-help" books. I bought it because growing up in the late '30s-early '40s I remember that it had a very prominent place on my Father's bookshelf. And, Rabbi Liebman was one of the very few Clergy (of any faith) that he held in high regard. I haven't read it as yet, but, I wanted to see what the message was & if it has held up in the intervening 70+ years.
