    About The Book

    Where can we find peace of heart and mind – with ourselves, with others, and with God? Arnold says most people are looking in the wrong direction. In a culture that bombards us with feel-good-about-yourself spirituality, Seeking Peace may not dispense popular wisdom, yet it is sure to satisfy a deep hunger. There is a peace greater than self-fulfillment, a peace greater than nations no longer at war. But it will demand a relentless pursuit kept up only by hope and courage, vision and commitment.

    INDIEFAB Book of the Year award

    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.
