Bringing about peace

You too can be a peacemaker. Leave your personal fingerprint and make a difference!

How does that work? The members of the CPA Switzerland are happy to tell you about our professional life as “Christian and Policeman” and would be pleased to receive an invitation. Because those who put on the uniform do not have to take off their faith!

In 2010, the CPA Switzerland published a “Police Bible” in the form of an ethics manual. In addition to interesting, helpful contributions on the subject of ethics and peace, it contains the New Testament and parts of the Psalms. Personal accounts of experiences give the book a special touch.

A topical subject, everyone is challenged in it – in their place, especially our security forces in the police, border guards, customs and military. This book is addressed to them first, but then also to all people in our society, because everyone can have a peacemaking effect by adhering to good ethical principles! This small handbook aims to introduce these and at the same time offer help in coping with difficult situations.

The book consists of three parts:

  • Teaching section on ethics (80 pages)
  • New Testament (Hope for all), selected Psalms, Proverbs
  • Moving life stories and help for people in need (80 pages)

Police officers report in an exciting and true-to-life way about a God who can be experienced in the challenges of everyday life, who gives courage and strength, helps to overcome fear, forgives guilt and gives hope. This book not only wants to be read, but the ethical principles it presents want to be lived.

The edition, which is now somewhat outdated, contains, in addition to the eternally current Word of God, some contributions by people who are no longer in their former office, which unfortunately makes it difficult to sell. In order to spread the word about these valuable manuals nevertheless, we have decided to conduct a gift campaign so that they will continue to find their way to interested readers. Of course, we are happy to receive voluntary donations. Orders to office@cpv.ch.

Pretty Best Villain "Josef Müller

DESCRIPTION
For Munich’s chic crowd, Josef Müller was the insider’s tip with whom to invest one’s money. But the truth about the Starnberg tax consultant’s breathtaking rise to the international jet set is different: His life had a criminal component – with a soft start and James Bond-worthy consequences. Soon he was being pursued not only by creditors, but also by the FBI on an adventurous flight across America. “You won’t get me,” Müller had let the investigators know by Christmas card. Müller’s book is a turgid gangster epic only at first glance. If you take a closer look, you will discover a book of wisdom and self-knowledge: the account of a rich man who had to lose everything in order to find true wealth.320 pages plus 40 colour photo pages “I have known Josef for over thirty long years; I have seen him bursting at the seams – in every respect! – and I was often amazed. Now he is 37 kilos poorer, but all the richer at heart. It is a Saul-Paul story, frightening, admirable, worth reading!”- Charles Brauer, actor and “Tatort” commissioner

Hands up for freedom

DESCRIPTION
This book is for the edification and encouragement of uniform wearers (police officers, executive officers, customs officers, security, military officers) who are in doubt whether their profession is compatible with the values of the Bible.
How does God think about it – is there anything at all in the Word of God about it – am I allowed to carry and also use a firearm? Questions upon questions. And these are answered in a simple way. You will be surprised. Furthermore, the author gives testimony about his life with Jesus and brings a few examples from the police service how one can also serve humanity in faith.

New Handbook of Bible Prophecy

DESCRIPTION
There are many interpretations of the end times. This book differs from them in that it takes into account the rebirth of Jerusalem at the end of the church age. Starting from John 3, the author takes the reader into the Old Testament to lay the foundation for understanding and interpreting eschatological texts of the Bible.

Everything that the New Testament says about the end times can already be found in the Old Testament: Golgotha, the new birth, the Rapture, the two witnesses, the Whore of Babylon, the Antichrist, the false prophet and much more. Statements on end-time events must therefore be developed from the Old Testament and closely coordinated with it, because the Old Testament is given too little consideration in contemporary interpretations.
Without the knowledge of the rebirth of Jerusalem, statements about the future of Israel and that of the church of Jesus Christ cannot be exhaustively presented. With this knowledge, however, texts by Paul, Daniel and Isaiah, the end-time speeches of Jesus and even passages of John’s Revelation shine in a new and unusually bright light.
Finally, it is shown that Paul already knew and taught these topics in great detail. It is shown that the Bible is reliable in all its statements.

The author is an architect, born in 1962, married and has four grown-up children. Among other things, he was a director at a German and a Swiss commercial bank, where he was responsible for advising wealthy private clients on real estate. He has been self-employed since 2006. As a sideline, he is active in preaching in the Evangelical Regional Church and in free-church congregations in Germany and Romania. He is the author of several books on biblical topics and runs a YouTube channel with the same content.
