Publisher's Summary

We live in an age characterized by agitation and lack of peace. This tendency manifests itself in our spiritual as well as our secular life. In our search for God and holiness, and in our service to our neighbor, a kind of restlessness and anxiety take the place of the confidence and peace which ought to be ours. What must we do to overcome the moments of fear and distress which assail us? How can we learn to place all our confidence in God and abandon ourselves into his loving care? 

This is what is taught in this simple, yet profound little treatise on peace of head. Taking concrete examples from our everyday life, the author invites us to respond in a gospel fashion to the upsetting situations we must all confront. Since peace of heart is a pure gift of God, it is something we should seek, pursue, and ask him for without cease. This book is here to help us in that pursuit.

Practical and profound guide to this indispensable attribute

There are many good spiritual books for the Christian to read, but this small volume richly annotated with a pertinent Scripture citations is giving me a map and compass to keeping inner peace. I desperately want to remain at peace in this chaotic world, but I lacked clarity as to why. Now I have it.

Life Changing

J Philippe has a unique combination of wisdom and humility lacking in most people who aren't doctors of the Church. I want ALL of his books! And the narrator's performance is exceptional! I will definitely look for other books with Mr Coppock's narration.

Great book, terrible title, okay audio

I'm so grateful this book is in audio form now (even though the audio isn't that good)! It's been a favorite book for nearly two decades––top 5 spiritual books probably!

The title sounds like a self-help book, and so I avoided it for several years, but it really does what it sets out to do: help you find peace. I've come back to it again and again. It's thoroughly and authentically Catholic. I've met Fr. Philippe on few occasions, and found him to be a very authentic and holy priest.

This audio version is not very high quality, but it suffices. I thought the narrator's voice would bother me, but when I put it on 1.3 speed, it is quite manageable, and actually his inflection is very accurate.

Beautiful content, overly dramatic reading

I read this book (print version) several years ago and loved it. My Lay Dominican chapter chose this for discussion, but I couldn't find my paperback. I was happy to see it among Audible's selections. However, the narrator was often far too emotional and dramatic. It was distracting at times. Fortunately, the spiritual content is so good that I listened to the end.

If possible, I advise reading on Kindle or in print.
