Facing Reality from the Author: J. C. Eccles. The titling of this book - "Facing Reality" - came to me unbidden, presumably from my subconscious! But, when it came, it seemed to be right, because that essentially is what I am trying to do in this book. " Facing" is to be understood in the sense of "looking at in a steadfast and unflinching manner". It thus contrasts with "Confronting" which has the sense of "looking at with hostility and defiance". As I face life with its joys and its sorrows, its successes and its failures, its peace and its turmoil, my attitude is one of serene acceptance and gratitude and not one of angry and arrogant confrontation and rejection. The other component of the title - "Reality" - is the ultimate reality for each of us as conscious beings - our birth - our self-hood in its long stream of becoming throughout our life - our death and apparent annihilation. This is the Reality that we each of us must face if we are to live and adventure as free and responsible beings and not as mere playthings of chance and circumstance, going through a mean ingless farce from birth to death with the search ever for distraction and self-forgetfulness. As a brain scientist I have specialist knowledge of that wonderful part of the body that is alone concerned in the whole Iife-Iong interplay between the conscious self and the extern al world, including other selves.

Facing Reality from the Author: Doris C. Smith. As you read “Face Reality.” Think about the things that may have you hindered in life. Don’t be afraid, shame or even in denial. Remember, it’s the “truth” that will make you free. Truth is kind of like face cream, when you are dealing with acne. You may not see the results the first couple of times applying it, but after several usages; your skin will began to clear up. So be healed, be delivered and be set free. Most of all be blessed!

Facing Reality from the Author: Mncedisi Nkhoma. Facing Reality is written to young adults addressing the issues of relationships and giving a guide towards marriage based on Christian principles. It exposes the prejudices perpetrated by youth custodians who claim to have all it takes to groom and nurture young adults into productive and effective citizens yet avoiding the issues that are at the epicentre of their wellbeing and relationships. Issues like pervasions and promiscuity that result in undesired relationship outcomes are discussed. The Christian Church is reminded of its role and the community is put in its place in addressing these woes. Facing Reality exposes the reality of relationships to young people of this century and addresses this reality in an open way.
