Item description for Finding Peace: God's Promise of a Life Free from Regret, Anxiety, and Fear by Charles F. Stanley...
Overview Stanley opens readers to the world of God's unfailing peace--how to receive it and how to abide in it. He offers the tools for resolving past failures and regrets, for facing present concerns, and for soothing apprehensions about the future.
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.

Worth Reading! Sep 27, 2006
If you have not read this book by Dr. Stanley, you need to read it. You owe it to yourself. I continue to be amazed at his use of Scripture as it applies to the human soul.
I highly recommend this volume.
Good motivational book for finding peace Jan 14, 2006
~Finding Peace : God's Promise of a Life Free from Regret, Anxiety, and Fear~ is a helpful guide to seeking peace and overcoming anxiety in midst of stressful circumstances. Charles Stanley gives practical and sound Scriptural exhortation on facing life's problems. We can find our peace in midst our trials and tribulations by recognizing that God is sovereign. Sometime, it is a lot easier said than done, which is why we need reinforcement from others. We have to continually set our sights on God's promises. Few Christians want to peer into book of Job, much less have their faith tested like Job. Taking a hit professionally or financially, suffering persecution, enduring slander, or relationship friction can strain a person. However, we can come out stronger enduring hardship if we seek peace of mind through God. God's pruning can often be painful, but we have to set our sights on Romans 8:28, and the promises of God. Life is a vapor.
Anyhow, Stanley offers a lot of prudent exhortation on seeking stability, peace of mind, discerning between productive and destructive anxiety, and living at peace with others. Too many Christian pastors these days, miss the mark and neglect addressing that life has its pains, and preach blissful optimism. Turn on Joel Olsteen for example, and he will be rambling about having a "better house, a better car," etc. and preaching the health and wealth non-sense. When life on the flying carpet of bliss doesn't come people get more discouraged and disappointed. Charles Stanley, however, isn't one of those errant teachers... Stanley will be the first to say tough times will come. Likewise, he offers sound advice on enduring those times and finding peace through acknowledging and trusting God. "You therefore must endure hardship, as a good soldier of Christ Jesus" (2 Tim. 2:3). Hardship endured in God's strength produces the peaceable fruit of patience, makes us more dependent on God, and breaks us of our stubborn self-centered thinking.
"What shall we then say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?." -Romans 8:31
Dr. Stanley's second-greatest book Dec 9, 2005
I've always felt that "The Source of My Strength" was Charles Stanley's unchallenged masterpiece. "Finding Peace" runs a close second. While it should be common sense for all, we need to be reminded on occasion that life is to be "lived," not "endured." Anxiety, fear, worry...these are all a matter of choice. And YES, it's easy to say that, but just as we make a choice to burden ourselves with those emotions, it requires a conscious choice to free ourselves. Charles Stanley offers practical wisdom, not "easy" solutions or pop psychology. It's a matter of faith: trusting God, trusting yourself. The people who are willing to do so, even if it requires a series of attitude adjustments, are the intended audience for this book. I've given it as a gift to close friends and will continue to do so. Very highly recommended.
Live in Peace Sep 25, 2005
This is really an inspirational work by Charles Stanley for all those struggling with regret, anxiety, and/or fear. In fact, it is for all those who feel the void in their lives, who feel that there's something missing and that everything isn't going to be alright. I really enjoyed this book and would recommend it to anyone, but mostly to Christians, as it is built on the Truth of Christ. For those who do not have Christ as their foundation, I recommend they seek to establish Him as their foundation first. "Finding Peace" reveals the spiritual ways to overcoming fear, regardless of its cause. Trust completely in God and change the way you think! I have been struggling with anxiety and fear in the form of panic attacks for some time. It will still take some time to overcome this ordeal, but following Charles Stanley's suggestions, I have no doubt that his prescription for establishing peace of mind is the correct one.
