This is the best book on attaining peace that I've ever read...it has all the makings of a classic. Here's why I like this book: It's relevant (who doesn't want greater peace?); It's human (Jim shares, doesn't preach); It's engaging (enjoyable to read, its lessons very practical); And, it's biblically rooted (I'm frankly suspect of other peace-prescriptions). It's just what you and I need as we try to navigate our pressure-packed lives! John D. Beckett, Chairman, The Beckett Companies Author: Loving Monday and Mastering Monday
One of the few constants in life is change. Our lives are so unpredictable. Jobs are lost. Health falters. Loved ones pass away. Relationships get rocky. Stress comes like a tidal wave.
Being a follower of Jesus doesnt necessarily make it easier. In fact, He told us wed have trouble in this life: In this world you will have trouble That means all of us. Guaranteed. While Jesus didnt leave us without hope, trouble often brings with it a lack of peace. We become prisoners to worry, anxiety and fear. Thankfully, Jesus didnt stop there. We CAN be free.
After making this prediction of trouble in our lives, Jesus was also quick to remind us that He is bigger than any of our troubles: But take heart! I have overcome the world. Jesus not only came to provide a way to heavenHe came to give us life to the full. That means inner peace in recessions. Serenity in the midst of relationship struggles. Calm regardless of circumstances. This isnt just any kind of peaceit is the peace which transcends all understanding, a level of peace that we cannot imagine. And God has made this readily available. So take hold of this peace. Its meant for you.
This easy-to-read book walks the reader through a process to discovering peace in the midst of the chaos which abounds in your life. Because it is rooted in Scripture, if you follow the principles outlined here you WILL find true, lasting peace regardless of the circumstances in your life.
