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!
In 60 Days of Happiness, noted theologian and New York Times bestselling author Randy Alcorn shares sixty timeless devotions demonstrating that God not only wants us to be happy in him and enjoy his gifts, he commands and empowers us to do so.
MY REVIEW: This book is divided into 60 chapters, for 60 days. It looks like a really cool, well-thought-out, well-written book. Each chapter is three-five short pages long, and gives food-for-thought on the purpose, definition, and source of true happiness in God. I am excited to read this day-by-day and see what all Randy brings out.
A few of the chapter titles that look particularly interesting are:
- What role do our attitudes play in our Happiness?
- When are good things wrong, and when are they right?
- Must we choose between our Happiness and God's Glory?
- What does Thankfulness have to do with Happiness?
And of course there are many more--56 to be precise. :)
