Even in an Age of Instant Gratification, Life's Best Takes Time and Effort.

What is happiness? The immediate gratification of our physical and emotional desires? A sense of satisfaction brought about through consumerism or other promises of short-term enjoyment?

Our twenty-first-century views of happiness are not what the writers of the Bible had in mind. Nor are they what the ancient Greeks or the drafters of the Declaration of Independence envisioned. Such false ideas of happiness always leave us empty, chasing the selfish and superficial. Authors J.P. Moreland and Klaus Issler illustrate how we are happy only when we pursue a transcendent purpose -- something larger than ourselves. This pursuit involves a deeply meaningful relationship with God through a selfless preoccupation with the spiritual disciplines.

The Lost Virtue of Happiness takes a fresh look at the spiritual disciplines, offering concrete examples of ways you can make them practical and life-transforming.

Comments from people who have used this material:

This is a rare book. It manages to be biblical, deep, understandable, engaging, and practical all at the same time. As few books are, this one is worth contemplating, discussing, and putting into practice. I highly recommend it.
- Randy Alcorn, author of Heaven and Safely Hom
