The Author’s Welcome
I am delighted you are participating in my book’s blog tour! In Search of Persons of Peace, is a compilation of exciting stories that not only explain the concept of persons of peace, but will inspire you to join in the search and share your faith as never before. The stories will thrill your heart and move you to action
I believe this is a book that Christians need in our nation. Many Christians do not share their faith and have no understanding of the concept of persons of peace. I hope you will enjoy the stories so much, you will want to pass on the inspiration and order copies for your Christian friends and family. My prayer is that God will use the book to multiply inspiration for sharing Jesus.

“Persons of peace as referred to in Scripture (cf. Luke 10:5-7) serve as relational human bridges whom God can use in the spread of the good news of Christ, even in resistant settings. Dr. Carolyn Knight provides historical, biblical, and current-day stories of these God-prepared people. She also lays out instructions, all biblically rooted, on how to find persons of peace, using them to access lost people with the good news of Christ. By putting the persons of peace concept to work, we can multiply opportunities for people to know Christ. For this reason, I’m ‘in’ …. I heartily commend Dr. Knight’s work to all Great Commission workers!”
