Bobby Schuller has experienced enough loss and family struggle in his thirty-three years to understand that being blessed is not about glory, money, or fame. It's about so much more.
In Happiness According to Jesus, Schuller explores ten contemporary truths drawn from Jesus's Sermon on the Mount about what it means to live a blessed life. He asks:
How can I be a peacemaker in my relationships?
If God loves me, why won't he answer my prayers?
Is it wrong to be materially blessed?
What does it mean to be "poor in spirit"?
How can I find fulfillment whatever the circumstances?
No matter how long we have been following him, Jesus wants to mold our hearts to his so we view life as he does. As Schuller writes, Jesus didn't come to bring a new law. He came to make us a new creation.
My thoughts: I like that this book is based on the Sermon on the Mount, which is something we have been studying at our home. Filled with personal experiences, this is a wonderful and easy read. I thought it was engaging and insightful.
I received this book from Worthy in exchange for my honest review.
