The Spiritual Warrior

From the Deseret News:

Drawing from the faith traditions and personal experiences of people with whom he has interacted, Rabbi Niles Elliot Goldstein has learned some of life’s most important lessons, and he shares them in his book "The Challenge of the Soul: A Guide for the Spiritual Warrior."

Goldstein is his own kind of warrior; as a black belt in martial arts, FBI chaplain and Army chaplain — he is not your typical rabbi.

"I’ve learned a lot in dealing with people from lots of walks of life," Goldstein said.

From standing at the pulpit to working with the bucket brigades at ground zero in Manhattan, this Brooklyn-based spiritual leader said he has found that oftentimes, the challenges of people in completely different career fields at different times of life can still be similar.
