I always struggle with worrying, especially at night because I just lay in bed worrying over every little thing. It's horrible because it keeps me up for hours at night. I told my mom this and she told me that I should pray and ask God for peace. So at night I do my devotions before bed and pray and I can tell you, it works, it really does work. About a week later I was looking at books on Amazon and found this book. I was so happy that I found this book because I love Charles Stanly's books and ...more

I always enjoy reading books by Charles Stanley. This book seemed to come at a good time in my life with various things taking place that have caused me anxiety. "Jesus is in control" is one of the things I need to remember when faced with a situation that I view as potentially bad. Often times God uses those very situations to bring about something I never expected. I too often have self centered desires which in my infinite wisdom I feel should be met. It often takes me a while to see God at w ...more

Friends and mentors of ours have talked so positively about Charles Stanley that I finally had to break down and read one of his books, and I am so glad that I did. The gentle yet truthful ways he presents Scripture made me the reader feel like I was listening in on an affirming conversation between my Creator and me. His honest personal sharing illustrates principles throughout this nonfiction work. I was sad to finish it today. I look forward to giving this book as a gift and to reading it aga ...more

So many people talk about peace, of mind or with others. And yet, when push comes to shove, how well do these people do? Even well-respected authors on the subject, when you research their biographies, have come short on the real-world ability, or expertise, to remain at peace or to create peace.

What, then, shall be the solution? Is there something to the claims of the need for help from a higher power or intelligence?

I write this review from the standpoint of a skeptic. Yet, I cannot say I am

Excellent book based on a sermon series where I had the privilege of listen to one of the sermons in person at his church. Great resource on the peace of God, and it will deify any Christian in their walk with Christ.

I felt better after reading this book.

I am a follower of Dr. Stanley's television ministry and I read the bible daily so I am familiar with the material in this book. When you read this book you may think turmoil happens - focus on God, a piece of cake but it's not as easy as it seems.
I started this book a while ago and somehow other things got in the way of me finishing it. (I read "When the Enemy Strikes" in 2 days). Some issues came up, I started feeling conflicted; I returned to this book a

Dr. Stanley draws from personal experience and the Scriptures as he teaches about contentment and the real, and lasting peace of God. Is recommend the book for anyone who is struggling with fear, doubt and depression from circumstances, events, or any life challenges.

My first Charles Stanley book, I fell quickly in love with his writing. Finding Peace is a timely title for me and I think this book brought a lot of things to light that needed to be seen. I'm looking forward to reading more of Charles Stanley and I'd recommend this book to anyone in need of some peace and calm in their lives.

I adore Dr. Stanley. This is such an encouraging book and written in a really conversational, easy way. And I love that he chooses to focus on the Lord's sovereignty and reminds Christians not to make God small. (I always need to hear this, everyday.)

If you like Dr.Stanley's sermons you would like this book. Very plain spoken and straight forward advice. This is an encouraging and practical book about letting go of struggles that hold you back from God's peace.

We're all searching for peace and a way to deal with the regrets in our lives. Dr. Stanley does an excellent job of guiding you through these emotions to a place of acceptance and hope for the future.
