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 GodIsLogical.com.

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.

SiSe_fullcover_final.inddPhil is also the author of Sixty Seconds: One Moment Changes Everything, a collection of 45 inspiring, life-changing stories from prominent authors and thought leaders he interviewed. The roster of storytellers includes Wayne Dyer, Deepak Chopra, Neale Donald Walsch, Caroline Myss, Larry Dossey, Rachel Naomi Remen, Bernie Siegel, Dean Ornish, and Christiane Northrup. Sixty Seconds has been translated into four languages: Italian, German, Spanish, and Portuguese. Reading this book is like spending a few minutes face to face with each of the contributors and listening to their personal stories.

    Hey Phil,

    ABSOLUTELY LOVE your blogs! Thanks for the invite to check them out. So you really need feedback? You have achieved so much by getting these icons to contribute to your book, you should know your work is fabulous already.

    I am blown away knowing that you had got to talk to and interview these wonderful leaders I would love to interview them on my radio show. How did you manage it?

    As to the topics you write about, it is not very often that men are open about how being a father feels. For a man to share his feelings as openly as you have done shows a real conviction in yourself and your role.

    I look forward to getting to know you and read more of your work.

    Keep up the amazing work.

    love and best wishes,
    Rashmi Parmar

    Thank you for your very kind words, Rashmi. I will do my best to live up to them.

    Hello Mr. Phil Bolsta,

    I have heard so much about you but doesn’t really know who you are. I know you have visited my website divinecaroline.com before and had left a wonderful comment on one of my recent article.

    Your resume is quite impressive. I wish you continued success in your inspirational work and your promotion of Charice. I am so proud and elated to be considered one of your friends. I am in Europe at the moment visiting 17 EU cities.

    Tomorrow we will be in Luzerne, Switzerland.

    Good luck to you and to your family. Happy Father’s Day!


    Lovely Soul

  5. Madelle Says:

    Hi Phil,
    Cyn suggested I read your Bolstablog – looked in today (7/7) and I’m very impressed with what I’ve read so far. Cynthia has been a dear and helpful friend to me ever since I tripped on her sidewalk and broke both wrists. Can’t believe it was more than ten years ago! Your Mom is a lovely lady and I always look forward to her visits in Portland – we have a grand time together!
    Hope to visit ST. Cloud someday and maybe get to meet you
    Great blog!

  6. Phil Bolsta Says:

    Thanks, Madelle. Don’t forget that we already met through Skype when my Mom was visiting Cyn in Portland!

  7. iaGabriela Says:

    Hi Phil!

    Thank you for sharing your insights, experiences, interviews, and quotes.
    Just as I am searching for myself, whenever I log on to the internet I also search for websites which may help inspire me, motivate me, and remind me of what I should give importance to in my life.

    Your blog site is a breath of fresh air in the world wide web. I thank you for enriching me and other people through your writing. Your entries remind me to focus on the positive qualities of myself and others.

    Even the smiley face in the bottom of each webpage is a constant reminder to keep being positive! :)

    Thank you again!

    iaGabriela :)

  8. Phil Bolsta Says:

    You’re more than welcome, iaGabriela. I’m very glad you stumbled upon my blog and I hope to see you here often!

  11. Carol Ranes Says:

    Just reread your book because I am changing my course in life. As I did the first several times I loved it and thank you for putting it together. This time it reminded me of when early in my life working for a major company I felt very paranoid. I mean really paranoid so I decided maybe I needed to see a therapist. I went to one and the end result was that I was picking up on the feelings of the big boss. It was later confirmed with some information I received. But what was really important and your book reminded me, was that I remember telling the therapist before I stopped going that I had figured it all out. I was an emotionally healthy person in a world that was stuck in dysfunctional drama. Of course he laughed. But you know I was able to later confirm it just like I did with the paranoia.

    Thanks for keeping us all sane!

  12. Phil Bolsta Says:

    i”m honored that you have found comfort and inspiration in my book, Carol. And I”m glad to hear that you figured out something very important! May your life be filed with wonderful stories!

  13. Cindy VanHulla Says:

    Phil, so great to read about you, and happy to know that you know and live with God and a strong knowledge of His love and peace in your life. Once you are filled with the Holy Spirit, your magical thinking and eyes can see the hand of God in everything!

  14. Phil Bolsta Says:

    Yes, there is no thing and no place where God is not. Thank you, Cindy.
