Would you like to experience true happiness?
When it comes to happiness, most of us have the same questions. Why can’t I be consistently happy? Is it wrong to be happy when there’s so much pain and suffering in the world? And perhaps the biggest one: How can I be happier? Some Christians make an artificial contrast between joy and happiness, while others claim God wants us to be holy, but not happy. In fact, he wants us to be both, and the two go hand in hand!
Happiness is an odd thing to talk about in the Christian community, but Randy Alcorn does a thorough job of explaining how it fits and what it is. He goes through the debate on if joy and happiness are the same thing or not. I really enjoyed this, I do think it could have been shorter than 60 days. Some of the questions I felt were repetitive and irreverent to the topic.
I gave this book a 3 out of 4 stars, I would recommend it to someone who likes theology and the joy versus happiness debate. Its a good one for someone who is just starting to learn about God and His love.
