From Publishers Weekly Meyer, author of more than 50 books and host of widely distributed television
and radio programs, revisits themes from previous books as she expounds on
what it means to live at peace. The book is broken up into three sections,
walking readers through being at peace with God, with themselves and with
others. Meyer states that she now "enjoy[s] a life of peace that often passes
understanding"-a remarkable feat for one who grew up in an abusive home and
struggled through a difficult first marriage. However, exactly how Meyer
arrived at this emotional highland remains a mystery; her journey is not
recounted here, with the exception of small, often insignificant incidents
(frustration over losing a parking place, dealing with children who spill
things, arguing with her husband). While there are many helpful principles
(trust God, don't overschedule, learn to overlook small offenses), Meyer's
writing is shallow and her approach to scripture simplistic. Her "health and
wealth" biblical approach becomes apparent in the chapter on avoiding
financial pressure, where she states, "God wants us to prosper, but not out of
proportion to our spiritual growth.... God will release more and more to us as
we grow spiritually." (Sept.) Forecast: Warner Faith has sold more than 1.4
million copies of Meyer's titles in just the last year. Copyright 2004 Reed

In Pursuit of Peace: 21 Ways to Conquer Anxiety, Fear, and Discontentment (Meyer, Joyce) Mar 20, 2007
Very true and helpful...Not an 'overnight' cure but a great start!
A Pathway to Peace in Life Jan 30, 2007
In whatever you are struggling with in life, you will find that it all begins with seeking the peace of God. In learning to trust in Him and rely on Him completely, you can find a peace that surpasses all understanding. This is one of Joyce's most well written books and it is packed with the steps that you will need to find peace in an ever-changing, unstable world. Jesus came and died to give us HIS peace and it is up to US to pursue it! This is a must read for anyone desiring to enter the rest of God.
Disappointed Jan 29, 2007
The audio tape contains useful information; however, I was disappointed that Joyce Meyers was not the actual speaker. I have listened to other audio cds of hers and found them to be not only useful but entertaining as well. I found my mind wandering often as I listened to Pat Lentz speak on the CDs.
Amazing- you need to have this Nov 7, 2006
It was my first time buying an audiotape and I wasn't sure if I was going to like it but I loved it. I had never heard the subject of peace explained so well. The CD itself was very soothing. I listen to it everynight for the first two months. The voice of Pat Lentz works very well with the title of peace. I had to other 4 CDs for friends. The CD teaches you how not to be too busy, learning to relax and to rely on God, truly receiving the peace of God that surpasses all understanding in the midst of chaos. It teaches you how to handle stressful situations as well as valuing friendship and following God's plan. This is a very comprehensive CD that talks about behavior to even living a healthy life. I would say everyone should buy this CD.
I TRUST JOYCE MEYER UNSTINTINGLY Aug 14, 2006
"If we speak badly about ourselves, we will feel condemned. Let's actively apply what Jesus taught in the Scripture above to speak positively about ourselves as the first step to overcoming insecurity, and never speak negatively about yourself. Speak words that empower you- not words that weaken you."
The reason that I trust this lady so much is because she is so strongly anointed by the Holy Spirit, and she writes about the serious matters which we need to address, matters we need to have spoken out, matters we need to hear. To say that Mrs. Meyer is a great teacher would be an understatement, and in In Pursuit of Peace, she has now taught me how I can have this peace and really, which is not truly hard, if we follow the rules, and lean on God's wonderful and powerful hand and His grace in our daily lives. Some of the ways of keeping peace in our lives as suggested by Mrs. Meyer is to stop being double minded. Our peace can be maintained if we stop this double-mindedness, for changing our mind constantly shows instability and is not a good sign, plus double-mindedness steals our peace. Jesus intercedes for us so we should now relax, knowing that we have our Saviour who loves us carrying our burdens. Other ways of pursuing peace are:-
Not overloading our day with too many things. Knowing your limits will help you take care of your schedule.
Take a humble position and so avoid strife, and we shall experience peace.
Designate help when you have overload.
Accept yourself, and value yourself, as children of God, and you shall have peace.
Stop comparing yourself with others; focus on Jesus.
Look after you financials in a wise way, and if you cannot do that, get someone to help you.
Resist anxiety, which steals you, joy.
Don't think of another task without finishing the first.
Set boundaries for your friends and family so that they would not turn up into our lives whenever they feel like, forcing us to drop our work-load, and to sit down and sort-of entertain them.
These things and so much more, are offered to us, to show us how we can have peace and pursue it with all of our hearts. This book is highly recommended! Enjoy!!! Reviewed by Heather Marshall Negahdar (SUGAR-CANE 14/08/06)
