Publisher's Summary

Christians are supposed to be happy. In fact we are supposed to radiate joy, peace, and contentment that are so unmistakable and so attractive that others are naturally drawn to us because they want what we have. And yet, in today's culture, the vast majority of Christians are perceived as angry, judgmental people who don't seem to derive any joy from life whatsoever. So why aren't we happy?
Unfortunately, many Christians are taught early on that God doesn't want us to be happy (he wants us to be holy). In fact many Christians are laboring under the false notion that God himself is not happy. But nothing could be further from the truth! God does want us to be happy. The Bible is filled with verses that prove that ours is a happy, joy-filled god who not only loves celebrations but also desperately wants his children to be happy. Why else would he go to the lengths he did to ensure our eternal happiness in his presence? We know that we will experience unimaginable joy and happiness in heaven, but that doesn't mean we can't also experience joy and happiness here on earth.
In Happiness, noted theologian Randy Alcorn dispels centuries of misconceptions about happiness and provides indisputable proof that God not only wants us to be happy, he commands it. The most definitive study on the subject of happiness to date, this book is a paradigm-shifting wake-up call for the church and Christians everywhere.

Good theory just way too long

theory in this book is very good but it gets very repetitive and could have been a third of this length

Wanna be happy?

The title of this book intrigued me. Who would not want to be more happy? Is God happy? How can we find the happiness we are all looking for? I was not disappointed. Randy Alcorn's premise, drawn from scripture and church history, is that God himself IS happy and wants us to be happy too! The book helps explain and expound this idea. So glad I listened. Worth every minute!
