    About The Book

    Fear of accidents or acts of terror, illness or dying, loneliness or grief – if you’re like most people, such anxieties may be robbing you of the peace that could be yours. In Be Not Afraid, Arnold, a seasoned pastoral counselor who has accompanied many people to death’s door, tells how ordinary men, women, and children found the strength to conquer their deepest fears. Interspersed with anecdotes from such wise teachers as Tolstoy, Dickens, and Dorothy Day, Arnold’s words offer the assurance that even in an age of anxiety, you can live life to the full and meet death with confidence.

    Johann Christoph Arnold is the author of several books, including Why Forgive?, Rich in Years, Seeking Peace, and Cries from the Heart. He lives in upstate New York.

    Based on his popular 1997 book, I Tell You a Mystery, this new version has been broadened in scope to include discussions of contemporary issues such as AIDS, suicide, and euthanasia.
