    About The Book

    Every one of us has experienced longer or shorter periods of anxiety, anger, guilt, discouragement, or loneliness. In forty years as a pastor, Johann Christoph Arnold has seen it all. But he’s also witnessed the most hopeless lives completely transformed. That’s why he is convinced that, no matter what problems you currently face, you too can find the freedom, confidence, and fulfillment that you long for.

    In Escape Routes, Arnold tells real-life stories of people who have found their way out of life’s hells despite the odds. This isn’t a self-help book. It offers no quick fixes or superficial makeovers. But if you’re ready to take its medicine, it will guide you on your way to a more hopeful and meaningful life.

    Arnold writes: “Call it life, call it hell: there’s not a person I’ve met who hasn’t been lonely, discouraged, depressed, or guilt-ridden at one time or another, if not sick, burned-out, or at sea in a relationship. Sometimes I know this because they have told me about their problems; sometimes I can tell just by looking in their eyes. That’s what got me started on this book – the fact that all of us have known some form of hell in our lives, and that insofar as any of us find freedom, confidence, companionship, and community, we will also know happiness.”
