Overview

Sometimes it just feels like life is beating us up. We worry about our family, our health, our money, our time, and in the process we run ourselves ragged. These stressors are not a recent phenomenon, but have been with humanity since the fall. Even though The Christian’s Secret to a Happy Life is over 130 years old, author Hannah Whitehall Smith was aware of the age-old problems that plague humanity. In her studies, she discovered that there is a way to handle the stressors in our life in a healthy way that builds us up instead of tearing us down. That way of dealing with life’s trials is through living faithfully in the rest and comfort that Jesus offers us. True happiness does not come from an absence of difficulty, but through the loving embrace of our Savior.

This edition features an artistic cover, a new promotional introduction, an index of scripture references, and links for scripture references to the appropriate passages.

Meet the Author

Hannah Whitall Smith - (1832-1911), Quaker Holiness author
Hanna was raised in a strict Quaker home and was given to morbid introspection that found little relief until her marriage to Robert Piersall Smith in 1851. They were both converted under Plymouth Brethren influence in 1858 and in 1867 had a new experience of faith that propelled them on a speaking tour of the United States and Europe. Their "Higher Christian Life" meetings in England were exceedingly popular, partly because of D. L. Moody's success there.

They remained in England due to Robert's declining health and observed the founding of the Keswick Convention in 1874, an outgrowth of their conferences. Trouble followed, however. Robert began to entertain notions of spiritual wifery, was criticized, and eventually claimed to be a Buddhist.

Hannah was the author of the spiritual classic, The Christian's Secret of a Happy Life (1875) and later developed ideas on the final restitution of all things, diverted herself into social causes and writing. She produced The Unselfishness of God and How I Discovered It in 1903. A year later she was stricken with arthritis. Although confined to a wheelchair and in much pain, she maintained an optimistic spiritual outlook until her death.

    What treasure! What an author!

    This book, written over a hundred years ago, still speaks clearly to issues prevalent even in the lives of Christians today. I am grateful to the fine folks at Google and at B&N for making it available for me to read on my nook! (Note: there are several typos on most pages, but the value of the content far surpasses any irritation one might feel at finding them.)

    Caution:Paraphrased or Shortened Version

    This is not the original version, so I would not recommend it. The original version is wonderful!

    No exaggeration - this changed my life

    When I read this classic 40 years ago at the suggestion of friends with Campus Crusade for Life it did not register. Then, 5 years ago I read it again, and it had a profound impact on my understanding and Christian daily life. I am not someone who reads a book more than once, but I have read this one 5 times and given over 50 away. Combine this with daily Bible reading and Oswald Chambers' daily devotional My Utmost for His Highest and I cannot imagine your life not changing.
