It's easy to think that emotional pain and feelings of hopelessness are modern issues. But two thousand years ago, Jesus ministered to people who were also longing for peace and happiness. His answer? God's peace--his Shalom, a word so important that it's translated seventy different ways in the Bible. This often-overlooked aspect of the Christian life is the foundation for deep, meaningful happiness.
In this uplifting book, Jeremiah Johnston provides a biblical perspective on living a life of Shalom. Johnston reveals:
· the peace Jesus offers vs. the peace the world promises but can't deliver
· how to apply God's peace to our current situation and combat anxiety, fear, and hopelessness
· how to protect this perfect peace in our lives when troubles try to steal it
This book is also helpful for lay leaders, pastors, and everyone else who recognizes the church's incredible opportunity today to help individuals and families dealing with anxiety and depression.
