A Treasure For All, January 25, 2003
 Reviewer: apple2003 from South Florida

    Surprised by Peace is a treasure that I highly recommend to all. It is easy to read, hard to put down, and extremely moving and inspirational. The stories are so real you can feel the anguish and joy of the authors as you read. This book offers insight into gay people that we do not often encounter. It will make you rethink the typical stereotypes of gays, as well as Christians, especially the negative ones. It shows how gay people are among all segments of society and that they yearn for the same things all people do: peace, love, joy, and hope.

    From these accounts, we see that God is much bigger and of such greater character than what we are led to believe by religion, its leaders, and their interpretations of Scripture. The stories are about people of various ages, family status, educations, religious backgrounds, nationalities, professions, finances, and health, yet they all find peace through a simple faith in God.

    For these reasons, Surprised by Peace has universal appeal. It is the kind of book we all need to read to better understand ourselves and all those around us, as well as the character of God and the peace and hope we can all find through simple faith in Him.

 

 

Amazing book of the peace of God, January 25, 2003
Reviewer: Kathy Bergerson from Hialeah, FL USA

    I'm not much of a reader, but when I started to read Surprised By Peace I found that I couldn't put it down.

    I have read it three times. Sometimes when I am having a bad day I pick it up and read some of the stories and find that it gives me encouragement and peace.

    The stories were written by people from all walks of life. Each story touched me in a different way. I identified with the pain, hurt, sadness, and happiness the writers felt as they wrote about their life experiences. The stories portray how God can take heartache and turn things around giving Peace and Love in its place. Surprised By Peace shows God's love and acceptance of everyone as each of us should accept and love one another.

    I pray that this book will give each reader the peace and love that only God can truly give us.
