Firefly Books' Subject Bible series of twelve titles to date has sold over 150,000 copies in North America and three million worldwide. This latest title might just be the best of all. After all, humans devote their entire lives to striving for happiness by one means or another. And yet, happiness does not just happen. Pleasure might, fortune can, but long-lasting happiness and sustainable well-being -- what the author calls "flourishing" -- is an altogether more elusive condition, but not unreachable. It is a skill as much as a state. It takes effort, practice even. The Happiness Bible works with the reader to explain how happiness works and evolves, where it comes from, and how it can be nurtured and maintained. The book introduces the principles of positive psychology and how it works to achieve happiness or, it should be said, how to be less discontented. It examines what happiness studies have revealed and how positive psychology exercises help to banish the "thieves of happiness". Throughout the book are quotations that do more than inspire but also share wisdom worthy of reflection. 1. A History of Happiness -- Why It Matters 2. The Paradox of Positivity 3. Global Glee 4. Positive Psychology -- The Science of Flourishing 5. Thieves of Happiness and Barriers to Wellbeing 6. Mind-Mastery -- Breaking Down The Barriers to Wellbeing 7. Other People Matter -- Connection, Community and Communication 8. Happy Thinking -- Finding the Good and Surviving Well 9. Goals and Growth 10. Nourished by Nature 11. Find Your Forte and Go with The Flow 12. Meaning and Purpose -- What Matters Most and Why 13. Finding Space and Calm in The Now 14. Vitality is Vital to Living Well 15. A Happy Life is a Compassionate, Curious and Considered Life.

Scholars of the social sciences have devoted more and more attention of late to the concept of human happiness, mainly from sociological and psychological perspectives. This volume, which includes essays from scholars of the New Testament, the Old Testament, systematic theology, practical theology, and counseling psychology, poses a new and exciting question: what is happiness according to the Bible? Informed by developments in positive psychology, The Bible and the Pursuit of Happiness explores representations of happiness throughout the Bible and demonstrates the ways in which these representations affect both religious and secular understandings of happiness. In addition to the twelve essays, the book contains a framing introduction and epilogue, as well as an appendix of all the terms used in reference to happiness in the Bible. The resulting volume, the first of its kind, is a highly useful and remarkably comprehensive resource for the study of happiness in the Bible and beyond.

Happiness Bible Study Book includes a small-group experience for six sessions, individual study, applicable Scripture, and a group discussion guide. Christians are supposed to be happy. In fact, we are supposed to radiate joy, peace, and contentment that are so distinctive and attractive that others are naturally drawn to us because they want what we have. And yet, in today's culture, many Christians are perceived as angry, judgmental people who don't seem to derive any joy from life whatsoever. So why aren't we happy? Unfortunately, many Christians are taught early on that God doesn't want us to be happy; instead, He wants us to be holy. In fact, many Christians are laboring under the false notion that God Himself is not happy. But nothing could be further from the truth! In Happiness, noted theologian and author Randy Alcorn dispels centuries of misconceptions about happiness and provides indisputable proof that God not only wants us to be happy but also commands it. This is the most definitive study on the subject of happiness to date and a paradigm-shifting wake-up call for the church and Christians everywhere. Session titles include: 1. Joy and Happiness: The Conflict 2. Hardwired for Happiness 3. The Happiness of God 4. Idolatry and Happiness 5. Holiness and Happiness 6. The Happiness of Heaven

2017 ECPA Christian Book Award Finalist (Christian Living category) Christians are supposed to be happy. In fact, we are supposed to radiate joy, peace, and contentment that is so unmistakable and so attractive that others are naturally drawn to us because they want what we have. And yet, in today's culture, the vast majority of Christians are perceived as angry, judgmental people who don't seem to derive any joy from life whatsoever. So why aren't we happy? Unfortunately, many Christians are taught early on that God doesn't want us to be happy (he wants us to be holy). In fact, many Christians are laboring under the false notion that God himself is not happy. But nothing could be further from the truth! God does want us to be happy. The Bible is filled with verses that prove that ours is a happy, joy-filled God who not only loves celebrations but also desperately wants his children to be happy. Why else would He go to the lengths He did to ensure our eternal happiness in His presence? We know that we will experience unimaginable joy and happiness in Heaven, but that doesn't mean we can't also experience joy and happiness here on earth.
