"Inviting, accessible and personal. . . . A reminder of an overlooked truth: faith leads to joy." —James Martin, SJ, author of The Jesuit Guide to (Almost) Everything

Fox News analyst Father Jonathan Morris challenges the wisdom espoused by New Age self-help experts with the time-tested counsel found in the Bible. Readers who may have sought solace in popular self-help books like Eckart Tolle’s A New Earth, Rhonda Byrne’s The Secret, or Deepak Chopra’s The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success will be enthralled by Morris’s moving argument about the enduring spiritual succor awaiting in Scripture.
