I was honored that author Tasha Donahue reviewed my book, Through God’s Eyes: Finding Peace and Purpose in a Troubled World, on her blog. Here is her review.

by Tasha Donahue

I stumbled across this book at a Publishers and Writers meeting in San Diego. I was struck with the title, “Through God’s Eyes,” and a photo of the cosmos dramatically resembling an eye. WOW! I thought, what was inside? While I rarely review books, this is one I had to share with my readers, most especially as I recently spoke of better ways to handle your time and money at the holidays than avoiding a laser gun on Black Friday or spoiling your children with too many gifts.

Bolsta began sixteen years ago with an idea: He wanted to create a guide book that had the potential to change people’s lives. I opened the book and read what appeared to be an infinite number of endorsements from well-known spiritual leaders, writers, authors, and even sports celebrities. This is a practical guide on how to evolve spiritually and apply that evolvement toward everyday life. It can be transformative.

Then I went to the Contents pages and looked at an impressive array of Chapter Titles:
Rethink Your Worldview
You Are Not Separate from God
Find Freedom Through Forgiveness
Transcend Your Suffering
See Every Moment as a Gift
Detach From Outcomes
Your Choice Is Love or Fear

I was being reeled in now. I couldn’t wait to begin this huge, 538-page book. Actually, I wanted to devour it, but I decided as I read, that I really should only take this in small doses daily. It was perfect, for me, to read at the end of each day as I faced dreamland to think and reflect on what I had just read. But there are many ways one can read this book and all of them would be correct. I jumped around to my favorite topics. At the end of each chapter Bolsta shares a personal story and then a page of self-reflection questions for the reader to ponder.

For some, at first glance, this may seem a book of quotations. It is far more than that. Bolsta has a very definite spiritual path he guides us through. He will make a comment and then bring in a number of authorities (philosophers, poets, spiritualists and spiritual leaders) to back it up. These thoughts interconnect and weave throughout the book, and hence, a spiritual process begins. Every time I read from this book I feel better, calmer and more faithful that it keeps me on the right path. And I can see so many applications in the medical fields, psychiatric professions, counselors, hospices and to the Everyday Man with this masterpiece.

Bolsta may be quoting a lot of geniuses now, but it is only a matter of time till we start quoting Bolsta. Clearly, this is not just my opinion. This book won first place in June 2013 at the San Diego Book Awards. Here is a holiday gift worth giving.


Through God’s Eyes: Finding Peace and Purpose in a Troubled World, is a road map for living a more peaceful, beautiful life. It’s the one book that explains how dozens of spiritual principles interact, how to weave them together into a cohesive worldview, and how to practically apply this spiritual wisdom to daily life.

Who will benefit from reading Through God’s Eyes?
Anyone who is on a spiritual path, or wants to start one.
Anyone who loves life, or wants to learn how to.
Anyone who is happy, or wants to be happier.

Phil’s eBook, The Logic of Living a Spiritual Life: Supporting a Life of Faith Through Logic and Reason, is now available for 99 cents.

Order it at

In this eBook, you’ll find answers to questions like:
• What is the cornerstone of a spiritual life, and why?
• What is the secret to liberating yourself from other people’s judgments and expectations?
• How do you reconcile the “free will vs. Divine Will” conundrum?
• Why is there an exception to “Everything happens for a reason”?

Those who worship logic instead of God are only half right. Not only is it logical to believe in God and to live a faith-based life, the existence of a loving, benevolent God that governs all creation is perhaps the only systematic worldview that explains every aspect of life.
