Better Than We Believed
How to Apply the Vision That is Faith to the Struggle That is Life
by Robert J. Cormier
"Thoughtful, attentive, and direct, Fr. Cormier is unafraid of addressing the toughest issues of life and providing spiritual framework for understanding them."
—Rick Hamlin, author, Finding God on the A Train
Father Robert Cormier presents the true stories of believers who dared to ask tough questions of God at moments of crisis, and who in turn received ultimately good news about the resilience of their faith.
The book presents a concept of faith which is better than wishful thinking, and instead allows the reader to see plainly for him or herself the truth that changes how he or she sees everything else.
"Father Bob brings the hope and light of practical faith to the human experience of stress, depression, and anger." Read what Sr. Dianne Driscoll and Rick Hamlin are saying about Fr. Cormier's new book.
"If you start talking to God ... you will feel heard. You will know you have God's attention. Frankly, from all you already know about God, who has to be great, who has to be good, you will feel love."

Fr. Robert Cormier
"We pray that you know that your life matters, and that as you go forward and help others to do the same, you are making daily an eternal difference."
Faith is about experiencing and trusting a vision that bears fruit in our daily lives, helping us find healing, hope, reconciliation, and meaning.
I just finished reading one of the most practical, helpful guides to the spiritual life for ordinary folks.
Even if you are not Catholic, you can still benefit from this book. I found Fr. Cormier's answers to be mature, wise, and grounded in Scripture and experience.
