Overview

In ancient Hebrew prayers, the highest wish that any worshiper can offer to another is that the Almighty will give the worshiper "the greatest of gifts-the gift of peace." Ben Stein's The Gift of Peace comprises more than 500 lessons about how to live life in a state of peace.Drawing from wisdom learned in 12-step meetings and from his own meditations, Stein reveals the guideposts that have taken him (over the last 16 years) to a life incomparably more serene and uncomplicated than it once was.The lessons in The Gift of Peace are about surrender to God, about turning envy around, about realizing one's own unimportance in the universe, and about achieving humility through actions as well as thoughts. Through repeated readings, these homilies, especially upon waking and at bedtime, offer genuine calm and peace.
