Format: Hardcover
The Secret of Happiness is a devotional exposition of the beatitudes (Matthew 5:3-10) and a must-read for all Christians. Each chapter explains a beatitude, puts the beatitude in a spiritual context, and discusses why Christians should pay attention.
Graham's exposition is lucid and to the point. The book was first published in 1957 and it includes, at least in the first printing, a priceless portrat of Graham as a young man.
I have read this book twice. The first time was in college. I reading it again now in mid-career on the death of my grandfather. My grandfather loved this book enough that he donated a copy to the church library where it remained for 20 years. I receieved this book as an heirloom.

This is a spiritual guide to true inner happiness in any circumstance. In this day and age it's easy to become sad and have an empty, almost fearful feeling. Dr Graham, in this book, gives us all the tools and reminders we need of what is really imporant and that God offers to us an inner peace in all situations. This book is an excellent tool to regain the inner peace and happiness in all lifes situations. I highly recommend this book!

As Christians, we have the greatest gifts that are available to all who choose to receive Jesus Christ, but received only by those who have accepted him. One of these gifts is the eight beatitudes of Christ, found in Matthew 5:3-10, which have helped me (and I’m sure many others) look ahead to God’s plan of redemption in their lives: spiritual, physical, and in many other areas. And the Lord has spoken through Dr. Billy Graham in The Secret of Happiness: where Dr. Graham examines all eight beatitudes individually, and dissects them, one-by-one. Just what are the results?

Well, one of the most notable ones is Dr. Graham’s observation of the famous question, “why do bad things happen to good people,” the same title of the bestselling book by Rabbi Harold S. Kushner that made people believe God to be finite (see my review). Dr. Graham takes us through the Bible’s passages on suffering, offering interpretation, and helps us apply them to the present day world. If you are not being persecuted, it might not necessarily mean you haven’t been faithful, Dr. Graham teaches; you live in a Christian nation! For me, this was a breath of fresh air, as I live in a town where most people are Christians, and may be tempted to wonder if they haven’t been faithful when they haven’t been persecuted. Dr. Graham does a jam-up job explaining the last of the eight beatitudes, and his perspective here may change the direction of your life and faith for all eternity. (The same intention Dr. Graham had with his last sermon, The Cross, when it aired on his ninety-fifth birthday this past November, 2013, according to Franklin Graham in his introduction to his father’s sermon.)

It doesn’t stop there, however. Dr.

The beatitudes are explained using today's language, which allows easy understanding. The presentation is supported by cross Bible verses and living examples that facilitates the interpretation.
