Overview

Christians should be the happiest of all people! Randy Robison, writer and producer for Life Today television program, encourages readers to embrace everything God wants for them, including deep, overflowing gladness that does not depend on pleasant circumstances or emotional highs. Robison provides helpful answers to important questions like these:

  • What is true happiness? How does it compare to blessing, joy, and our delight in the Lord?
  • Is true happiness attainable in this life?
  • Why does God want us to be happy? How does happiness relate to our relationship with God, our character, and our mission?
  • What keeps us from being happy? What promotes happiness?
  • How can we be happy even when we are broken, afraid, or navigating stressful situations?

Full of biblical wisdom and insight, this engaging new look at happiness challenges readers' unexamined assumptions and opens new possibilities for them to rejoice in the Lord like never before.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Here's a straight-from-the-shoulder guidebook that avoids the shallows of world-think, anchors to the rock of God's grace-filled and loving ways, and answers the deep-seated heartcry of innumerable honest men and women, teens and collegians who are seeking lasting fulfillment."
--Jack W. Hayford, President, The King's University

"Joy is hugely important in the lives of believers, and this is the perfect manual for finding real happiness."
--Andy Andrews, New York Times bestselling author of The Traveler's Gift and The Noticer

"Randy Robison challenges us to think more deeply about what it means not only to be joyful but also to be happy. The result is a book that will awaken the desire for true happiness in your life--today and always!"
--Margaret Feinberg, author of Scouting the Divine

"This book makes war on age-old heresy that Christians are unhappy people. Redeeming the truth that our God is the author of joy, Robison breathes life again into his reader's soul."
--Johnnie Moore, author of Honestly, vice-president and campus pastor, Liberty University

"We thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. It is very well written, practical, thought provoking, and relevant. A great resource for a godly view of true happiness."
--Josh and Katie Hamilton, Major League All-Star

"Having dedicated my life to strengthening marriages, I understand the importance of happiness for couples. This book not only helps people individually but also creates a better foundation for all relationships. In God Wants You to Be Happy, Robison joins godly wisdom with personal insight to create a refreshing guide for living with unconditional joy and happiness."
--Jimmy Evans, CEO, MarriageToday

"Negativity and discontent just don't lead us to the lives we desire. Wouldn't we rather just be happy? I would, and I know you would too! Robison shows us we all can possess and express happiness. What an impact this could have on every family, marriage, and individual."
--Jennifer Rothschild, author of Self Talk, Soul Talk and Lessons I Learned in the Dark, founder, WomensMinistry.net and Fresh Grounded Faith Events

"Hey, is there an unhappy person in your life? This book will help point the way to a place of greater joy."
--Dr. Kevin Leman, author of Have a New Kid by Friday and Have a New You by Friday

"This book has the potential to change a lot of lives! Real happiness can only be found in the light of Christ. This light, implanted into the heart of every believer, longs to consume us and emanate from us. Robison clearly defines the differences between the alluring happiness based on chasing our self-centered, ego-driven, materialistic desires, and happiness based on the light of Christ already within us."
--Pete Wilson, author of Plan B

"Robison provides an in-depth look at what happiness means in God's economy--he really has given us a Bible study on the subject. God does want us to be happy in the truest sense of the word. I learned so much and appreciate Randy's new insights, his scholastic approach, and his practical applications. If you want to know happiness as God intends it, read this book!
--Ruth Graham
