60 Days of Happiness: Discover God's Promise of Relentless Joy
I just finished reading '60 Days of Happiness: Discover God's Promise of Relentless Joy.'
I was excited to read this book because I loved Randy Alcorn's book 'Heaven' and thought this would be as inspirational and dynamic.
Sadly, I found it a bit dry. It seemed like he looked up happy quotes on the internet and scattered them throughout. And the chapters felt very repetitive.
I did take away one thought though that may have been worth reading the whole thing! And that was when he pointed out that we expect God to treat us by the way we perceive Him. So if we see Him as a harsh, controlling task master with no sense of joy we will fear Him and not get close. But if we see Him as a happy God then we can expect Him to want us to be happy too.
That made sense to me.
If you want Bible verses about happiness and joy or quotes from other writers and well-known people, then get the book.
Tyndale gave me a copy of this book for my review.
