Editorial Reviews

Review

“Father Jonathan Morris explores the richness and depth contained in the seemingly simple Serenity Prayer, and helps show how we can begin to discern God’s will in our lives—as well as how to cooperate with Him! Profound truths presented in an engaging and down to earth style.” (Timothy Cardinal Dolan, Archbishop of New York)

“For believers, The Way of Serenity provides a roadmap to peace. For non-believers, Father Morris provides a deep incentive to consider the other side.” (Bill O'Reilly, Anchor, Fox News Channel)

“Rarely in the world of spirituality, do you find smart and compassionate, worldly and sensitive, profound, accessible...and practical! That’s what Father Jonathan Morris has done for people of all Christian backgrounds in The Way of Serenity.” (Kirsten Powers, Columnist, USA Today and The Daily Beast)

“Father Jonathan has captured the simplicity and the mystery of both surrendering and actively pursuing the peace and joy that serenity provides. Just the right book at just the right time for people no matter in which season of their life they may be.” (Dana Perino, co-anchor of The Five, Fox News)

“Every leader meets countless challenges in our lives that cause us great stress. In The Way of Serenity, Father Morris teaches us a practical way to patiently and wisely discern what we can and cannot do and how to find peace as we give the responsibility to God.” (Alan Sears, President and CEO of Alliance Defending Freedom)

“With vivid writing and engaging personal stories, Father Jonathan Morris unpacks the wealth of wisdom contained in the simple Serenity Prayer. The Way of Serenity is a lifeline for anyone who has ever felt lost and overwhelmed.” (Jennifer Fulwiler, author of Something Other than God)

“Jonathan Morris is an unusual priest, not just because he’s become the celebrity go-to priest for Fox News… and because The Way of Serenity will debut on The New York Times bestseller list. He’s unusual because so many priests’ sermons ignore what’s happening in the world.” (Crux)

“This is a book that can make a difference, one day at a time.” (The Dubious Disciple)

“For a conversation about faith with a warm, thoughtful, big-hearted man of God, The Way of Serenity was satisfying.” (Guideposts Magazine)

“In The Way of Serenity, Father Jonathan Morris examines the appeal and value of the popular ‘Serenity Prayer,’ … [sharing] some profound insight about the simple three-line prayer.” (Catholic San Francisco)

From the Back Cover

Father Jonathan Morris, Fox News religion analyst, bestselling author, and parish priest, has seen firsthand how easily our day-to-day lives are consumed with anxiety and stress as we focus on our failures and troubles, while peace feels unattainable. When he re-discovered the Serenity Prayer, he realized that this little prayer can be, in fact, a powerful roadmap for our spiritual journey toward God. As he began to share this prayer with others, he saw that living these simple lines became a source of profound peace and happiness:

Lord, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I can,
And the wisdom to know the difference.

For years a mainstay of recovery programs, this prayer has proven it can change lives. What's more, through it we all can find comfort and support, including an active collaboration with God's grace as he works alongside us to grant the serenity we seek. Unpacking the prayer phrase by phrase, Father Jonathan shows how we can gain a deeper spiritual understanding by practicing its message. Through powerful personal stories, illuminating historical anecdotes, and biblical passages that show us God's plan for our lives, The Way of Serenity will help us grow closer to God and find serenity, regardless of our circumstances.

Join Father Jonathan and the many others who have made this prayer an integral part of their lives, and find lasting peace and happiness today.

Format: Hardcover
What is the serenity prayer, and what does it mean in my life? Like so many simple passages taken from great books or verses of faith, the simple prayer is far deeper than it seems. Morris’ book takes you along a path looking into the scope that it entails and the many people it can touch. Like his other books, his warm tone feels like a discussion with a good friend, rather than dictation of the faith.

This book should not be limited to just the people of faith, as its contents touch on so much more than that. Compassion. Inner strength. Wisdom. All things that anyone could use more of. With the pressures of modernity at every side, looking back into ourselves to find our inner strengths and vulnerabilities, our character, and even our faith is a compelling reason to read this book. This insightful book may just strike a chord in you, as it did me.

I bought this book the day it came out. I've never read a book by Jonathan Morris but I'm really glad I bought it. Recently I've been going through major anxiety and depression due to personal issues in my life. I was searching for a book that would be easy to read and comforting to the soul. This book is both! I spent hours searching through Amazon books to finally pick this one.

If you are suffering from worry, anxiety or depression this book is a must. If you're looking for a book that will comfort, reassure and reveal God's love and peace then please buy this book.

By far the best book he's written and I have them all. I highly recommend this book to anyone struggling with finding their own inner peace and happiness in the midst of chaos called life. It really has made me a more peaceful individual and I refer back to certain chapters whenever I'm feeling tense/stressed and I just love the prayers he has at the end of each chapter! This book is a "must read."

In a time when everything is unstable, keeping our spirit... heart and mind strong is a must. "The Way Of Serenity" by Father Jonathan Morris takes his readers to the spiritual heroes of whom they are already familiar with. If you are struggling with stress, failure, depression, loneliness or an overwhelming crisis, this book will be a blessing. The great thing about this book is that it gives real steps that you can do right now to help your situation and the way you think. Based on the Serenity Prayer -- it is written from the heart and offers Bible references and personal stories that offer hope and strength in difficult times. I had studied Acts of the Apostles before, but never thought about it the way Father Morris explains on P. 119. I especially loved the prayers at the end of each chapter. We can't live out the Christian life and find serenity on our own. We need the power that only comes from God. Father Morris' book offers sincere help on how to attain peace and serenity through trusting in God's will for us. Father Morris provides some meaningful insight for coping with the burdensome problems that we all face at one time or another. Very inspirational book! Thank you, Father Jonathan Morris!

I am quite familiar with the Serenity Prayer from days with Alcoholic Anonymous. This book however brings to life multiple means to the message. I never fully realized how powerful it was to so many aspects of my daily life.
Importantly, a discussion of how this prayer applies to problems we face each day is so valuable. Father Morris knows that our lives are messy and hits the nail on the head over and over.
It has helped me.
