How then can we find the calm and quiet we need to be truly content? By seeking for and immersing ourselves in God. In her latest book, best-selling author Joyce Meyer discusses 21 ways in which we can rediscover "the peace that passes all understanding." Through a diligent analysis of Scripture, as well as words of wisdom and candid insights from her experiences, she inspires us to begin our own pursuit for lasting serenity. Journey with her and learn how to:
Be at peace with God, letting go of your worries will help you become supernaturally relaxed.
Be at peace with yourself, understanding how to strive for calm will help you overcome those mental and spiritual storms.
Be at peace with others, maintaining a mind-set of quietude in your relationships will ultimately enhance your search, both with God and within yourself.
Be led by peace, discovering how a peace-filled attitude affects every aspect of your life will make you more able to embrace it....And much more.
God tells us over and over in the Bible that we must seek peace in everything we do. Here, with these 21 steps, Joyce Meyer shows us how to actively pursue and live in it, as God intended. The choice is ours to make, she says. Are you ready?

Great book, good listen
In Pursuit of Peace is an excellent book, on par with Joyce's other recent books, including How to Hear from God, Seven Things That Steal Your Joy, and Knowing God Intimately. Like her other books, this book addresses the subject implied by the title in a pure, inspired and unrelenting approach; i.e. no fluff or filler. For me, Joyce is the most inspired, and inspiring, Christian author alive today. Read this book, do what she says, and you will truly have more peace.
The only problem I have with this book is that it isn't read by Joyce Meyer. Pat Lentz is an excellent reader, but the book is often written in the first person. If you know Joyce, you surely know her voice, and it seems like an imposter is reading it! To hear this voice, lovely as it is, talk about "my husband Dave" and "I was led by God" when you know it isn't the same person,is distracting. Why they decided to change their successful formula of having Joyce do the reading, as was the case in the other three books I mention above, is a mystery. Joyce obviously has a gift of teaching, and her speaking is part of that gift. Had this book been read by Joyce, I would have given it five stars. Still, it is a good listen, and it accomplishes exactly what the author intended.
