In Escape Routes, Arnold explores the roots of loneliness, frustration, alienation, and despair and the keys needed to leave them behind. No self-help mumbo jumbo here - just lots of real-life stories and straightforward advice. Potent medicine for anyone willing to down it.
After decades of being a pastor, Johann Christoph Arnold still marvels at our capacity to make life miserable for ourselves and one another. Escape Routes, his tenth book, aims to show the only sure way out of these self-made hells.
In contrast to the makeovers and quick fixes hawked by popular culture, Escape Routes offers a tougher prescription. Using real-life stories, Arnold exposes the common seeds of loneliness, frustration, alienation, and despair, and gives us tools to uproot them from our lives. The choices he presents are clear: "to be selfish or selfless to forgive or to hate to burn with lust or with love to defend your personal power, or dismantle it."
Why stake your hopes on some eternal hereafter, Arnold asks, when you can taste heaven right here and now? No matter your problems, or who you are, this book will help you on your way, provided you're ready to take its medicine.View Table of Contents
