Description : Dr. Brian Bailey presents this commentary on the epistle to the Ephesians, which beautifully portrays Christ as the warrior King, clothed with the armor of God.

It is the author’s prayer that the readers might enter into these beautiful truths that we might be raised up to “sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus.” (2:6)
Description : Peace! Rest of heart and mind for the individual soul. Security and comfort for the nations of the world. Freedom from distraction and surcease from the terrors of armed conflict. A conscience that does not condemn and memories that do not burn and distress. All of these and more are included in our thoughts as we think of the meaning of peace. But where is this desirable state to be found? Who enjoys this blissful condition? The worldling is a stranger to it. The self-righteous cannot attain it, however smugly complacent they may be. The callously wicked may have a conscience seared as with a hot iron, but they know nothing of true and lasting peace.
Description : The Peace of God was one of the most important movements of the Middle Ages, yet is highly contested. It has been seen as both radically innovative and fundamentally traditional; as millenarian and not millenarian; as a popular movement and as a way of consolidating power for the elites. Geoffrey Koziol argues for the validity of all these differing viewpoints, because specific instantiations of the Peace of God varied greatly, and there were inherent contradictions in early ideas of peace and peace-making.
Description : In ancient Hebrew prayers, the highest wish that any worshiper can offer to another is that the Almighty will give the worshiper "the greatest of all gifts—the gift of peace." Ben Stein’s latest book, The Gift of Peace, comprises more than 500 lessons about how to live life in a state of peace. Drawing from wisdom learned in 12-step meetings and from his own meditations, Stein reveals the guideposts that have taken him (over the last 16 years) to a life incomparably more serene and uncomplicated than it once was. The lessons in The Gift of Peace are about surrender to God, turning envy around, realizing one’s own unimportance in the universe, and achieving humility through actions as well as thoughts. Think of this book as a lifetime supply of non-addictive, no-side-effect tranquilizers and antidepressants and you have it just about right. Thorough, repeated readings of these homilies, especially upon waking and at bedtime, offer genuine calm and peace.
Description : In times of crisis and confusion, Dr. Charles Stanley has learned the one phrase that can carry him through: "God, You are in control." The peace he has experienced in life stems from that foundational belief. In Finding Peace, Dr. Stanley shares with readers how they, too, can experience an unshakeable peace which "passes all understanding." Filled with encouragement to lift the soul, Finding Peace offers insight on what causes us to live without God's peace in our lives, and how we can reverse course and open our hearts to receive it. Also, Stanley gives his perspective on the things that hinder peace-including the "Four Great Hallmarks of God's Peace" and "Five Essential Beliefs for a Peaceful Heart"-to put the important message of this book into concrete terms. Addressing regret, anxiety, and fear, Dr. Stanley extends hope for overcoming the obstacles that block peace with the Lord. Finally, he gives direction on learning to live a life of contentment.
