Seeking Peace: Notes and Conversations along the Way

By Johann Christoph Arnold. Where can we find peace of heart and mind – with ourselves, with others, and with God? There is a peace greater than self-fulfillment, Arnold writes, a peace greater than nations no longer at war. But it will demand 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. Read More

“Seeking Peace is a tough, transcendent envisioning of peace. Arnold writes in the tradition of the Berrigans, Simone Weil, and Thomas Merton.”–Jonathan Kozol

Six Months to Live

By Daniel Hallock. A month before his wedding, twenty-two-year-old Matt Gauger was diagnosed with lymphoma.

Hallock draws the reader into the experience from every perspective – in the words of Matt’s wife, parents, brother, doctor, pastor, friends, and colleagues – to show how our lives can take on new depth of meaning when we realize that our days are numbered and face (rather than avoid) life’s most important questions. Read More
