About the Author

People have come to expect sound advice from Johann Christoph Arnold, a pastor and award-winning author with more than 2 million copies of his books in print in more than 20 languages. His other books include Why Forgive?, Rich in Years, Seeking Peace, Cries from the Heart, and Be Not Afraid.
Born in Britain in 1940 to German refugees, Arnold spent his boyhood years in South America, where his parents found asylum during the war; he immigrated to the United States in 1955. He lives with his wife, Verena, in upstate New York.


Arnold dispenses much practical advice while exposing the roots of such human perennials as loneliness, frustration, alienation, and despair. Sometimes his medicine is Zen-like in its common sense.--Booklist
Not many authors pack as much wisdom, and as little fluff, into a page as Arnold. If you're wondering who you want to be when you grow up, Escape Routes offers a road map to real life. If you're already grown up and wondering if you missed something, this book offers a hard but real path to rebirth.--Andy Crouch, Christianity Today
Beautiful...Arnold does not give us a magic formula for coping with life's hells - there is none - but gently reminds us that the first step begins with ourselves. Drawing on the wisdom of men and women of many faiths, this book is one that can be appreciated by all.--Ari L. Goldman, Columbia University
Escape Routes is a gem of a book from an infinitely wise pen - a lucid, poetic, and pragmatic companion for "people who feel trapped in life's hells." Though rooted in the author's personal faith, it transcends religious boundaries and has universal, ecumenical appeal.--Shira Dicker, National Foundation for Jewish Culture
A humble and thoughtful offering...with stories and personal anecdotes that gently urge readers to a more meaningful life.--Foreword Reviews
