What is joy? What isn't joy? And, most importantly, how can we experience it? After all, isn't that what we long for - something that goes beyond mere happiness and lays hold of the fullness Jesus promised? Yet while C S Lewis may have been 'surprised by joy', most Christians today are just plain confused by it. We talk of joy as though we know what it's about, but our lives tell a different story.
Penetrating to the heart of what biblical joy really is, Rich Wagner wrestles honestly with the tough questions many of us wonder but haven't known how to ask. Is joy anything more than a plastic smile? Can we experience joy while battling fear and uncertainty? Are Christians honestly expected to rejoice in the midst of turmoil and tragedy? Can real joy possible live up to the hype?
Joy is one of the great hallmarks of Christianity. Wagner helps us to understand and receive the unquenchable joy Christ promises.

What is joy? What isn't joy? And most important, how can we experience it?After all, isn't that what we long for-something that goes beyond a smiley face and takes hold of the fullness Jesus promised his followers? C. S. Lewis said he was "surprised by joy," but the reality is that most Christians today are just plain confused by it. While paying lip service to joy, we replace it in favor of a cheap substitute-happiness. In The Myth of Happiness, Rich Wagner dispels our misconceptions and reveals the true nature of biblical joy. He wrestles honestly with the tough questions many of us wonder but haven't known how to ask. Is joy anything more than a plastic smile? Can we experience joy while battling fear and uncertainty? Are Christians honestly expected to "count it all joy," rejoicing in the midst of turmoil and tragedy? Can real joy possibly live up to the hype?Joy transforms. It's God's most tangible gift available to believers this side of heaven. Wagner debunks the myth of happiness and helps us receive the unquenchable joy Christ promises.
