"For every thousand hacking at the leaves of evil there is one striking at the root." —Henry David Thoreau
What are the roots of the problems we face in the world? According to the author, these roots are moral and spiritual. And since the problems are rooted spiritually, the solutions are also. This book focuses on these roots, which include:
- Vision: An eternal perspective toward life, its problems and challenges
- Commitment: A logical step after we have learned and understand who we are and why we are here
- Understanding and Example: The fundamental roots in succeeding with people
- Communication: The most important single activity of man
- Self Discipline: To do and act consistent with commitment and vision
Parents, teachers, leaders, missionaries—all will find new insight to aid them in discovering and acting upon these spiritual roots of human relations, as the author draws upon his wide experience as a teacher, administrator, consultant, and counselor to illustrate these concepts with wisdom and candor.
