From devastating wars to destructive relationships, everyone knows that our world lacks the true and lasting peace we all long for. Yet God has promised us that peace is possible.

What People are saying about this

From the Publisher
"Peace, if it comes at all, tends to come in little pieces—the job is stable for now, the kids are healthy today, friends still hang out with you—and sometimes I can settle for those scraps. Thanks, Andy, for showing me how I can honor God by aiming for peace that is much deeper. You let those words of Jesus linger in my soul, ‘Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you.’”
Edward T. Welch, Counselor and Faculty Member, Christian Counseling & Education Foundation

“There are many books I can recommend on finding peace with God. There are far fewer I can recommend on experiencing the peace of God. Real Peace is a book I highly recommend for real people facing real trouble in a really messed up world. It paints gospel-centered portraits, explaining how to apply John 16:33 in the midst of our struggles with stress, anxiety, grief, depression, and conflict. Reading Real Peace pointed me not to a system, but to a person—The Prince of Peace.”
Robert W. Kellemen, Vice President, Institutional Development; Chair, Biblical Counseling Department, Crossroads Bible College; author, Gospel-Centered Counseling

“This is a book about being whole in a broken world, about finding rest amidst chaos within and without. I actually felt peace as I read it, making it a perfect book to read on vacation or on a coffee break in the middle of a stressful day. Filled with charm, personality, and wisdom, Real Peace offers solace to restless Christians and invites non-Christians to know the God of peace.”
Mike Wilkerson, author, Redemption: Freed by Jesus from the Idols We Worship and the Wounds We Carry

“We all long for peace in our hostile, chaotic, and seemingly meaningless world. Why? Our souls were created for peace—not mere emotion or experience, but through an abiding relationship with the Prince of Peace. My friend Andy Farmer serves the church and the world well through his deeply thoughtful, winsome, and gospel-orienting work. Through its sociological and soul-revealing insights drawn from the wells of Scripture, Real Peace offers us hope that ‘draws the poison of self and despair’ out of our peace-robbing struggles. Such hope is found only through our Redeemer, Jesus Christ. Real Peace is a must read for everyone as we are called into the radical mission of the gospel.”
Robert K. Cheong, Pastor of Care, Sojourn Community Church, Louisville, Kentucky; author, God Redeeming His Bride
