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.

This is one of the books that meant a lot to (Columbine martyr) Cassie Bernall in her seeking for a new life of faith. Friends from Littleton told me she was actually wanting to tell her youth group about this book on the day of the tragedy. This book and another called 'Discipleship' were found after her death heavily underlined and highlited by Cassie. I hope that other young adults can discover this book and let it impact their lives.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

As we rush around fufilling the responsibilities of job, family, and civics, we do well to pause and remind ourselves what it's all for. Here is a good book to do it with. In his signature style, Arnold collects vignettes of some who have found a source of strength hidden in inward peace. His premise is timeless but needs constant reinforcement, that meaning and purpose flow from within and that time spent seeking peace bears fruit. In a hypertext world, here is a welcome change, and a delightful read, too.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
