by John Kuypers

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
Highly praised by Christian leaders Jean Vanier, Greg Paul, Bishop Douglas Crosby and Dr. Josie Lombardi, The First Rule of Inner Peace offers people of faith Jesus’ universal yet little noticed way to resolve troubles and be happy. Based on Matthew 7:5, this Christian practice cures our spiritual blindness so that we can see clearly what to do. Kuypers describes in vivid detail how first getting neutral before we respond is the spiritual key to healing our inner self.
Jean Vanier, founder of L'Arche, author and a great man of faith speaks out: "“This little book can have far-reaching consequences if we learn and live it. Seeking peace is like seeking wisdom. We need help to put order especially into our disordered relationships. Peace is not absence of war. It is to be in communion with those whom we tend to push aside. Peace is not a flower we can pick. It is a loaf of bread which we have to make and bake. We have to work at it. The FIRST RULE of INNER PEACE can help us see what is disordered. Then we can “work at it” so we can eat bread together.” The FIRST RULE of INNER PEACE awakens the sensible part of our soul to see clear, God-centered answers in troubling situations. Then we find the courage to do the right thing. But there is a catch. We must seek inner peace first, before we know the results we will get. It is contrarian, universal and powerfully effective. Based on Jesus’ teaching in Matthew 7:5, The First Rule of Inner Peace is for people who feel: • Anxious and stressed • Frustrated with someone close • Unhappy despite outward success • Hurt by heartaches and loss • A heartfelt desire to grow closer to God Surprisingly, you have already used THE FIRST RULE of INNER PEACE without even noticing. This little book will astonish you. See video and testimonials at Readers from pastors and bishop's to housewives and professionals love the personal impact this book on their lives. It is praised by Christians and non-Christians alike. "I have found myself thinking about this book every day." "Simply amazing. I love it!" "Shares a timeless truth missed by so many people." "Powerful, grace-filled and practical!" "I will be promoting your book everywhere I go." "A simple, profound tool." "My son changed 110%" "...has had a profound impact on me." The FIRST RULE of INNER PEACE is Jesus sensible way to resolve issues and be happy.
