"Here's a powerful, biblical antidote to despair!"—LEE STROBEL, New York Times bestselling author

God's peace, his shalom, can penetrate every aspect of your life—spiritually, mentally, physically, and emotionally. Although the word shalom appears 550 times in the Scriptures and was a constant theme in Jesus' teachings, it is a neglected topic today. As a result, God's peace has been elusive to so many followers of Jesus. This book charts a course of shalom for you!

As Greg Laurie writes in the foreword, since we are made in God's image, you could say we have been prewired for happiness. We are prewired for hope. We are prewired for peace. If you are longing for healing and wholeness, noted Bible scholar Jeremiah J. Johnston will help you discover how to

· Unleash shalom in your life
· Live and apply shalom in God's world
· Protect your shalom in difficult times

This uplifting book is also helpful for ministry leaders and everyone else who recognizes the church's incredible opportunity today to help individuals and families dealing with anxiety, worry, and mental pain. Let this be your guide into the peace that passes all understanding. Shalom!

"This is more than surviving; we are offered the gift of truly flourishing."—SHEILA WALSH, author of Holding On When You Want to Let Go

"In this reassuring meditation on Christian happiness... Johnston's mix of scholarly and uplifting notes will speak to solace seekers and their ministry leaders alike."PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
