Readers' Responses to Happiness
I just finished this book last night. I've been a believer for 45 years and a Bible Study teacher for 12, [and] I came away with a much better understanding of God and of Scripture. –D.P.
I'm really enjoying reading Happiness... and I thought Heaven was the best book I've ever read. Happiness is running a close tie race! –B.C.
I really enjoyed reading this book. Frankly, if a book called Happiness wasn't a pleasure to read, wouldn't that be a major problem right there? Also, as you're sitting there holding a thick book with Happiness emblazoned on the cover, you may have somebody come up and ask you what you're reading. Won't it knock their socks off when you tell them? Now that's a way to start a Christ-conversation, with happiness. –F.F.
For many years I felt so bad about not feeling the "joy" that others claimed to have. I just didn't get it. I understood happiness and could relate to that emotionalism. I'm so thankful that you linked the two together in such a Scriptural and spiritual way. Now it makes sense... no more guilty feelings!.–B.C.
In the last 11 years I've been a Christian, I've heard the phrases "God wants us to be holy, not happy" and "God is more concerned with our holiness than our happiness" more times than I can count. Yes, we absolutely need to be holy. However, being saved Christians with the promise of Heaven should make us the happiest people on Earth! No one will want to learn more about Jesus or become a Christian if we look miserable and unhappy all the time. I think this book is an extremely important work that should be read by every Christian. –D.M.
This book has helped me refocus on why I am happy. It’s quite simple for me. He Lives! I serve a risen Savior; He’s in the world today. I know that He is with me whatever man might say. He lives within my heart. None of the success by worldly standards last past the next morning, but God’s plans for us will last thru eternity. Let’s all opt for that one! –D.S.
