The Happy Christian

The Happy Christian
Ten Ways to Be a Joyful Believer in a Gloomy World
David Murray

People tend to lean towards being negative. And often Christians are viewed as the gloomiest of all. So the author has taken his knowledge of theology and pulled from psychology and modern science to write a book about how Christians can be happy despite the negativity that surrounds us.

The book is written with a heavy slant towards psychology and brings out some great points about addressing the issues that keep us from being positive and joyful. The author is honest and authentic, which is refreshing. The book is written in a more text book feel which leans away from the study guide style that is so popular right now. My favorite part was the chapter on gratitude and the part it plays in our joy.

I received this book free of charge from Thomas Nelson in exchange for my honest review.
