Paul, sustained by God's grace in all of his difficulties and upheavals, repeatedly calls in Philippians for his friends to "Rejoice!" And yet Paul is in prison, still struggling with "a thorn in the flesh," and is living with at least six other daunting challenges which normally would smother joy. His joy truly is miraculous.
The Miracle of Joyis a 31-Day Journey into that deeper joy. It speaks compellingly to individuals but is also suitable for Group Study. Guided by a refreshing study of the Scriptures, this encouraging work cites numerous historical references, Christian hymns, and real-life illustrations. Dr. Huggins affirms that the same miraculous joy Paul experienced and celebrated is available to us today. Philippians reveals the Key to that joy and offers more than twenty specific, sometimes surprising, ways to nurture that joy.
This 31-Day Journey may change your life forever.
