What is the purpose of our being? How much joy are we supposed to feel in a troubled world? Can our trials make us happier as well as stronger? If joy is the absence of sorrow or disappointment, then how could God be happy (because surely He has reasons for both!)?
In this new addition to the popular Time Out Classics series, bestselling author Chris Stewart discusses how to experience a more joyful life. Drawing on unforgettable real-life experiences and rich examples from the scriptures, he offers suggestions for reorienting our lives in order to achieve greater joy and happiness — even in the most challenging times. Redefining Joy looks at some of life’s most difficult questions. But be prepared. The answers may surprise you.
I read this book and enjoyed the author's life stories so much that I went and bought a copy for my dad for father's day. The whole time I was reading, I thought, "these stores and analogies are so unique and interesting and I know my dad will be able to relate them." He isn't much of a reader, so the fact that it's a quick read is great as well! This is Chris Stewart in a different genre of literature, and I think he does a great job!
