Editorial Reviews

Review

"Happy is a cheap word nowadays, hardly strong enough to describe the realistic, joyful, triumphant Christian life into which David Murray labors to lead us. His book overflows with earthy, deep-rooted biblical wisdom that many miss but all of us need."  

Dr. J. I. Packer, Professor of Theology, Regent College

"If anyone else had written a book with this title I wouldn't have picked it up. The fact that it was written by Dr. David Murray made me not only pick it up but study it in depth. This is not a 'feel good' book but a book about the genuine joy and happiness that we can know as beloved followers of Christ in a broken world."
Sheila Walsh, author of Loved Back to Life

"The Happy Christian is a timely reminder to all believers that the sorrows of this world are no match for the supreme joy of knowing Christ. Christians everywhere will be encouraged by this work for years to come."

- Ed Stetzer, President of Lifeway Research Division, contributing editor for Christianity Today

"A timely corrective to both the excesses of the "prosperity gospel" and the gloomy spirit that overcomes so many Christians. Biblically compelling and pastorally encouraging, this easy-to-read book makes an important point that Christians need to hear. Read The Happy Christian and remember that through the love of Christ you are blessed by God!"

- Dr. Richard Phillips, minister and author of Jesus the Evangelist

"A robust and welcome defense of how the gospel acts in the lives of those who have been transformed by it. A great read--transforming and uplifting."

- Derek Thomas, Professor of Systematic & Historical Theology. RTS.

Review

There’s a sort of gloom and doom in the air. You don’t have to go far to get a whiff of it, as matter of fact, you probably know it well. David Murray understands that there is a problem when our hearts and minds are set on the negative things of this world and he has a wonderful solution: the Bible. “The Bible has an uplifting and positive message,” he says. And he is right. “Jesus leads us through the dark valleys and beside green pastures.” If we set our minds on all we have in Christ, how could one not be filled with the joy of the Lord? With a fascinating mixture of science and biblical truth, Murray sets out to help us see how we practically seek the joy found in Christ. The Happy Christian reminds me that the joy of the Lord truly is my strength. -- Trillia Newbell

Christians and non-Christians alike are besieged by bad news and a world of difficulty. Christians, though, should respond in a way that reflects the hope they have found in Christ. In Happy Christian, David Murray instructs us on how to face the challenges of this cynical age with a rooted joy and a resounding happiness. Happy Christian will instruct, inspire and encourage believers to live our their faith with true joy. -- Ed Stetzer

David Murray’s Happy Christian is a timely reminder to all believers that the sorrows of this world are no match for the supreme joy of knowing Christ, Christians everywhere will be encouraged by this work for years to come. -- Ed Stetzer
