Seeking Peace : Notes and Conversations along the Way. by Johann Christoph Arnold. On the face of it, Johann Christoph Arnold's latest appears to promise less than the forgettable multitude of self-help titles which claim to offer easy methods of achieving peace-with their implication not only that peace is a commodity you can own, but also that once attained it will become a permanent attribute of your character.

Where can we find peace of heart and mind--with ourselves, with others, and with God? Arnold says most people are looking in the wrong direction. In a culture that bombards us with feel-good-about-yourself spirituality, Seeking Peace is sure to satisfy a deep hunger. There is a peace greater than self-fulfilment, a peace greater than nations no longer at war. But it will demand a relentless pursuit kept up only by hope and courage, vision and commitment. 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.Independent Publisher Book Award winnerForeword Magazine Book of the Year

I ordered this for a good friend for Christmas. It was given to me by my priest son many years ago while he was in seminary. I keep it on my bed stand and read while my husband brushes his teeth. MY ALL TIME FAVORITE BOOK!!!!

I enjoyed it.

As a very elder person, reading is not my favorite thing to do. I purchased this book for a church study group. The subject was interesting for the group. I am not one to be judgemental.

I suspected I'd love this book from the humility apparent in the title phrase "SEEKING Peace": not "having" or "finding" but simply seeking. On the face of it, Johann Christoph Arnold's latest appears to promise less than the forgettable multitude of self-help titles which claim to offer easy methods of achieving peace--with their implication not only that peace is a commodity you can own, but also that once attained it will become a permanent attribute of your character. Arnold promises less, but what this book gives is something infinitely more valuable and original than a quickie peace fix.
This book offers and demands honesty with ourselves and others in our search for peace. Beginning with a section called "Paradoxes", Arnold recognizes that peace is a slippery concept that's easily warped by doublespeaking politicians, New Age gurus, or self-righteous activists. The center piece of the book is a section of fifteen "stepping stones" on the way to piece, including forgiveness, humility, honesty, conviction, and realism. The final section of the book expresses a vision of true peace: peace is creative force whose characteristics are justice, wholeness, and joy.
If I have one argument with the book, it is that the chapter on "Justice" might have been given a more prominent place in the structure of the book. A deepgoing meditation on the slogan "No justice, no peace", this chapter stands alone as an awesome statement of spiritual truth, which takes full account of the horrors of oppression while reaffirming the power of reconciliation. For me, this moment of synthesis is the heart not only of the book, but also of all sincere religious and social movements.
No one said it better than the author Jonathan Kozol, who is quoted on the back cover of Arnold's book: "SEEKING PEACE is a tough, transcendent envisioning of peace: neither fatuous nor sentimental, but arduous and courageous." Every person of good will, of whatever denominational or political stripe, owes it to themselves to embrace, and act on, Arnold's message.

I may have approached this book skeptically for a number of reasons. Judging from the cover, I was worried it might be "new agey" in the negative sense of "spiritually noncommital." On the other hand, I know many Christian books on finding peace with God and our fellow human beings have the it's-easy-just-follow-our-quick-fundamentalist-recipe tone of a cookbook.
Arnold surpasses all expectations with this wonderful book. Based solidly on the Christian faith he so clearly upholds, he nevertheless shows reverence for all humanity's common search for peace. He doesn't dodge the common but real obstacles to our finding peace: grudges, indecisiveness, material and sexual selfishness,indifference to social injustice. And he is willing to take to task those who sell "cheap grace". This book is morally invigorating, full of spiritual integrity, and profoundly optimistic in its sensitivity to humankind's basic instinct to community. I can't recommend it strongly enough.
