Contrary to widespread belief, to be at peace is not a condition only applicable to those who have died. Personal peace is, in fact, available to everyone according to Brian Baker the author of this book. This is not in any sense a spiritual or mystical experience but is based entirely on a program of practical personal adjustments to one's own attitudes and lifestyle. Brian was the founding Pastor of one of the largest churches in Australia (1979 -1989). After he resigned from the ministry he began to examine his own faith and seek evidence for the veracity of the Bible and Christian belief. He finally came to the conclusion that his Christian beliefs had been entirely
but sincerely, wrong as they had been based on myth and stories handed down over hundreds,and in some cases thousands of years. He concluded that it is virtually impossible to find any factual historical or scientific evidence to validate the contents of the Bible or the existence of God.
When he had come to terms with his transformation from believer to atheist he also realized that for the very first time in his life he began to live day by day in peace. During all those years when he was totally immersed in Christian life and ministry he had been surprised and disappointed that he was never able to experience the level of personal peace he had desired and expected. - At last the personal peace which had been so elusive became a reality.
The contents of this book are the result of Brian's experience and discoveries which he believes will assist anyone to find their own personal peace by applying the practical principles and self examination to their life which will enable them to live in peace.
In the first chapter - Peace without God - Brian explains his reasons why Christian or religious peace is a false peace which ultimately cannot provide the high level of personal peace we all desire." Personal peace without God!
