Matthew 4:4 states, "Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God." To reinforce this need for spiritual nourishment, author Fayek S. Hourani shares Daily Bread for Your Mind and Soul: A Handbook of Transcultural Proverb and Sayings.
In this book, the author shares some of his thoughts as well as the proverbs and sayings of many men and women from different places and eras with readers. The proverbs and sayings in Daily Bread for Your Mind and Soul have been gathered from a variety of cultures, and countries, yet they manage to convey a universal message that will touch everyone's soul, regardless of race, religion, or socioeconomic status.
Hourani also tells how life journey, which consists of almost three quarters of a century, has had its share of difficulties and rewards. Yet he never succumbed to the pressures he faced, however harsh. He always carried God in his heart and never lost hope in His mercy or the goodness of the very loving people around him. The sense of sharing, and the pleasure of working together, helps people to live in peace and prosperity-a message that the author emphasizes in his book.
"My hope is for you, the reader, to take lessons from both my personal journey and the inspirational and uplifting quotes provided in this book. I also wish that this journey would be able to change your entire way of living and thinking for a better, wiser, happier, and more peaceful life," he shares.
Hourani recommends that readers consume Daily Bread for Your Mind and Soul three times a day as a spiritual reinforcement with each meal. It will give them mental and spiritual balance, self-esteem, and peace.
