In 1875, tuberculosis was the deadliest disease in the world, accountable for a third of all deaths. When Robert Koch announced his cure for consumption, Arthur Conan Doyle, then a small-town doctor in England and sometime writer, went to Berlin to cover the event. Touring the ward of reportedly cured patients, he was horrified. Koch’s “remedy” was either sloppy science or outright fraud. Conan turned to a character inspired by the very scientific methods that Koch had formulated: Sherlock Holmes. Capturing the moment when mystery and magic began to yield to science, The Remedy chronicles the stunning story of how the germ theory of disease became a true fact, how two men of ambition were emboldened to reach for something more, and how scientific discoveries evolve into social truths.

In this calming book, Deacon Eddie Ensley shows how to tap into what St. Paul describes as “the peace that passes all understanding.” Through guided meditations based on Scripture, and beautifully told personal experiences that recount his own path to peace following a tumultuous youth, Deacon Eddie invites us to discover how Christ truly anchors us in his peace. With compassion and understanding, he shows us how prayer can help us make peace with fear, anxiety, anger, suffering, and even death. Ultimately, we move from being peace seekers to peacemakers as we share Christ’s mercy, love, and compassion with all.
