About the Author
Dr. Charles Stanley is the senior pastor of the First Baptist Church of Atlanta, where he has served for more than 40 years. He is a New York Times bestselling author who has written more than 60 books, including the bestselling devotional Every Day in His Presence. Dr. Stanley is the founder of In Touch Ministries. The In Touch with Dr. Charles Stanley program is transmitted throughout the world on more than 1,200 radio outlets and 130 television stations/networks, and in language projects in more than 50 languages. The award-winning In Touch devotional magazine is printed in four languages with more than 12 million copies each year. Dr. Stanley's goal is best represented by Acts 20:24: "Life is worth nothing unless I use it for doing the work assigned me by the Lord Jesus-the work of telling others the Good News about God's mighty kindness and love." This is because, as he says, "It is the Word of God and the work of God that changes people's lives."

I started this book a while ago and somehow other things got in the way of me finishing it. (I read "When the Enemy Strikes" in 2 days). Some issues came up, I started feeling conflicted; I returned to this book and finished it in less than a week. After chastising myself for letting the enemy steal my joy, reading this book put me back on track.
Long suffering is just what it says, suffering for a long time, not patience. We can have patience without suffering. Dr. Stanley says it best on p. 162, when he writes "We must be willing to endure some tough times . . . ."
Dr. Stanley writes about "negative signals" and refers to "the loud music, " yet some Christian music today can be loud and even back in Biblical days they were to make a joyful noise.
Basically, though, this is an excellent book. Dr. Stanley has taught me, through writing this book, that the most important part of having peace is to have a close personal relationship with God. Through personal stories and Biblical examples, he shows how we can overcome regret, anxiety, and fear.
The main problem I had with the book was in the formatting. Having no space after a period makes it difficult to highlight. For my own personal reference, I like to highlight passages that have special meaning to me.
I'd definitely recommend this book. Dr. Stanley has a new book coming out in October 2013 if you're interested in reading another of his (I don't remember the title).
