My Peace I leave with you
The world is a tumultuous place.
Between wars and hunger, heartbreak and confusion, it can be difficult for Christians to understand and process the troubles we face in this life. But what if we have been looking at things with the wrong perspective? What would happen if we began to understand that Jesus does not provide peace from our troubles; rather, He provides peace as we go through our troubles?
My Peace I Leave You by Dr. Hillrey Dufner is an inspiring book, which challenges our tightly-held notions of what peace is supposed to be with what peace actually is. Inspired by John 14:27, Dufner contrasts peace as defined by the world with God’s definition of it, showing how Jesus’s death and resurrection provide true and lasting peace for those who put their trust in Him.
Come along on the journey, taking an in-depth look at what the Lord says about peace in His Word. From creation through the fall of man and on to Jesus’s life and death, see how peace was lost and ultimately redeemed, and what that means for us today. Learn how to access the life-changing, never-ending peace that is available to all who seek it.
