Overview

Everyone's seeking peace, but few seem to find it. Why? Arnold says most people are looking in the wrong direction. Where can we find peace of heart and mind - peace with ourselves, with others, and with God? Seeking Peace, explores many facets of humankind's ageless search for peace. It plumbs a wealth of spiritual traditions and draws on the wisdom of some exceptional (and some very ordinary) people who have found peace in surprising places. 1999 Independent Publisher book award.

Johann Christoph Arnold's best-selling titles on sexuality, parenting, death and dying, forgiveness, and peace have sold over 75,000 copies. His books draw chiefly on his experiences as a pastor at the Bruderhof, a Christian community movement, and from wisdom gleaned from a lifetime of counseling couples and singles, teens and young adults, prison inmates, the aged, and the terminally ill.
