March 2015/110 pages/$9.99

Dan Walsh, bestselling fiction author of novels like The Unfinished Gift and The Reunion, has penned his first non-fiction book. Perfect Peace is a 31-Day Devotional crafted from the pages of Dan's personal journal, written over the last several years.

Here's an excerpt from Day 2: “If you’re like me, you’ve known moments of real peace. Moments when you’ve trusted God fully for your life, for everything going on in your life. In those moments, you knew real peace. The problem is, the word ‘moments.’ The moments didn’t last. The promise of Isaiah 26:3 is not to have moments of peace in our lives. The promise is that God would keep us in Perfect Peace.”

In Perfect Peace, Dan shares the Scriptural life-lessons he's learned during some of the more challenging times in his life, hoping to encourage other Christians wrestling with things like stress, worry or fear.


Dan Walsh is the bestselling author of 12 novels, published by Revell and Guideposts, including The Unfinished Gift, The Reunion, and The Discovery. He has won 3 ACFW Carol Awards, 2 Selah Awards, and three times his novels have been named as finalists for RT Reviews Inspirational Novel of the Year.

For those who haven't read Dan's books, reviewers often compare him to Nicholas Sparks and Richard Paul Evans although more recently, Dan has also started to pen suspense novels, including What Follows After and When Night Comes. Dan has been writing fulltime since 2010. He and his wife Cindi have been married 38 years and have two grown children and three grandchildren. They live in the Daytona Beach area, where he grew up.

I love Dan Walsh's novels, and having met the man and read some of his blog posts, it is easy to imagine him in his former pastoral role. So I was thrilled to learn he has taken some of his journal reflections and published them as a devotional book. Reading these devotionals is like having coffee with a spiritual mentor. Walsh speaks Truth with the wisdom of one who has walked (and is still walking) the road of the reader. With authenticity and humility, yet confidence born of a proven faith, Walsh shares how the reader can find peace in the midst of life's storms. This book will inspire and encourage you. Why not pick up two, one for yourself and one for a friend?
