Product Description

Untie your peace from your circumstances; be free from fear and anxiety; find joy and comfort regardless of what is happening or not happening in your life. How many times have you thought, "If I could only get away for a few days," "If I didn't have to deal with this person, I wouldn't be so stressed," or "If my bills were taken care, of I could relax"? Circumstances can only carry us as far as a passing sense of happiness; God promises more. Wouldn't we all like to stop making excuses for why we can't have peace here and now?

Ann Spangler's The Peace God Promises was born out of a desire that so many of us share: lasting, immovable, unshakeable peace. By exploring the meaning of 'shalom' from Jewish tradition, and adopting Amish perspectives on simplicity and rest, Spangler presents an attainable, accessible and sustainable method for experiencing God's peace regardless of our circumstances. There is nothing on this earth quite like the peace of Christ. The Peace God Promises will encourage you, help you find rest, and calm your spirit through experiencing His presence and adding shalom to your life. Are there any among us who don't long for this?

Publisher's Description

If God has promised to give us the “peace that passes understanding,” why do we sometimes feel so anxious? What are we so afraid of? Are there ways of living that lead to peace? Conversely, are there ways of thinking and acting that lead to anxiety and a conflicted life? How does Jesus embody peace and where did his peace come from? The Peace God Promises sets our longings for peace beside God’s promise to provide it. In her desire to experience greater peace, bestselling author Ann Spangler probes these and other questions. Exploring the stories that shape us, the memories that define us, and the relationships that connect us, she looks for ways to help us become more peaceful. What can we learn from Scripture, from Jewish tradition, from the Amish and others about rest, simplicity, healing, and peace? The stories she shares and the answers she discovers may surprise you. If you put them into practice, they may even transform you, enabling you to experience the peace God wants you to have.

    Wow, that is quite a product description the publisher has written! Being interested to learn more about Jewish shalom and Amish simplicity, as promised by the publisher, I eagerly delved into this book.

    As is often the case, however, the book did not quite live up to the expectation created by the description. Sure, shalom and simplicity were mentioned, but Spangler explored neither one to a depth that drew me in. Those very important concepts faded into the "just another thought in the chapter" shadows.

    That's not to say The Peace God Promises doesn't have great stories, thought-provoking study questions, and an important message. It has all those things. But despite the fact that Peace had me feeling very convicted at different moments, it lacked the punch to help me convert that conviction into life-changing action. I found it very easy to close the book at the end of each chapter and return to life as usual. In that sense, there's truly nothing to set this book apart from the myriad of other books on the same topic.

    As a side note, here are several books that I couldn't just close and walk away from, but which have made a lasting impact:

    Not a Fan, Kyle Idleman

    The Cause Within You, Matthew Barnett

    Money Secrets of the Amish, Lorilee Cracker

    I received this book free from Zondervan for the purpose of providing my honest review. I was not required to give a positive review.
