Schuller, Bobby. Happiness According To Jesus: What It Means To Be Blessed. Franklin, TN: Worthy Publishing. 2015.
Presenting Chapters 5-7 of Matthew, the Sermon on the Mount, in a new, understandable, personal manner, Bobby Schuller shares stories, personal accounts, thoughts and prayers on happiness. Not just any-old happiness, but the truly genuine happiness found through and with Jesus. Peace, love, understanding, acceptance and quiet all factor into a blessed joy found in Jesus.
A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS:
Such an intriguing method of presenting a well-known yet perhaps not well-understood part of the Bible. Giving up living, surviving and trying to find happiness on our own, though not easy, when paired with Jesus can result in less turmoil, chaos and turbulence while opening us up to inner peace, contentment and true beauty of life. With the ultimate goal of eternal life, Happiness According To Jesus fixates on the message found in the Sermon on the Mount in a meaningful, maybe more modern context while keeping it pure. Perfect as a sermon topic, Bible study, ministry, or even a Sunday School lesson for older children…such a wonderful reminder that we cannot do it alone.
