In The Path to Peace, Ann Swindell asks questions. Two questions she asks are what does Christ’s victory mean for us in our daily lives? and How do we experience Christ’s victory in our day-to-day life, if our difficult circumstances don’t always or ever change?
By looking at the lives of eight people from the Bible, she shows readers who God was for these heroes of faith is who he is for us today. The same God who delivered them delivers us.
Written in eight chapters of five daily studies, The Path to Peace is not a quick devotional read. It is a book to spend time studying and reflecting on.
At the beginning of each chapter, Ann gives a suggested scripture to read, then recounts the story as if the person is telling it. She moves to how the person’s situation mirrored hers. Ann suggests how the reader might apply this to their lives. At the end of each chapter are questions for reflection.
For me, I believe the section on Christ’s mother, Mary, was the one I’ve read so far where I found the most area for reflection.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Bethany House for a fair and honest review, which is exactly what I gave.
Have you read this book? If so, what was your impression of it?
