Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Human beings are constantly searching for happiness, but too often seek it from insufficient and disappointing sources. This is the message that Naugle, professor of philosophy at Dallas Baptist University, eloquently presents. He argues that human beings have always searched for happiness, but come up empty most of the time because we cling to things of the created world rather than to the Creator. His prose is engaging, peppered with intriguing quotes from pop culture books, music and movies that propel his exposition along. The author's discussion of virtues is particularly compelling, and his presentation breathes new life into this topic. Many Christians will enjoy this book and be renewed in their quest for true happiness. Others will not, given the author's insistence that accepting Jesus is the only way to real happiness. In a religiously pluralistic world, the wisdom of Christianity can be shared with everyone if presented correctly. While the author lost that opportunity here, he is able to capture the sense of longing to live for something greater than themselves that so many feel, regardless of their religious views. (Nov.)

Review

Charles Colson -Founder of Prison Fellowship 'David Naugle, an outstanding scholar and writer, has tackled one of the most misunderstood words in American life: happiness. When Jefferson included that in the Declaration of Independence, he had in mind the classical definition of a virtuous life. Today we understand happiness only in the crassest materialistic sense. Naugle has written a very important and challenging book on a crucial question - what makes the good life. I can highly recommend it." Publishers Weekly "Human beings are constantly searching for happiness, but too often seek it from insufficient and disappointing sources. This is the message that Naugle, professor of philosophy at Dallas Baptist University, eloquently presents.

The author's discussion of virtues is particularly compelling, and his presentation breathes new life into this topic. Many Christians will enjoy this book and be renewed in their quest for true happiness." John D. Witvliet -Calvin College and Calvin Theological Seminary "David Naugle writes as a philosopher, master teacher, and child of God. He draws on a wide range of classic Christian texts and crystallizes this countercultural wisdom about a virtuous and happy life for students of all ages. His candid discussion of the disordered human condition is particularly crucial for explaining just how dramatic and transformative the gospel really is." Steven Garber -director of The Washington Institute for Faith, Vocation, and Culture "For many years now I have offered to any who need to know that I regard David Naugle as one of the most gifted professors in America. Perennially his students learn to think and care about the most important things - remarkably so, in fact. Reordered Love, Reordered Lives allows shoulder, and through his heart,' listening in on the unusual pedagogy that is uniquely his. Amazingly wise, incredibly well-read, he is always attentive to what matters most, and his book should find its way into hearts and minds, courses and colleges, far and wide."

Whether you're struggling with addiction or just having a meaningful life, Naugle clearly shows a better way through the gospel of Jesus. Using Augustuine's rightly reordered life as an example, with many other stories along the way, he simply illustrates the power that will change your life.

I urge you to not purchase the Kindle version of this book. There is no table of contents, the footnotes are broken, and page numbers are not counted. It has been a chore to read this work via my Kindle.

I heard professor Naugle interviewed on Mars Hill Audio. He talked about the seven vices and the seven virtues. I was intrigued so I ordered the book. The book had quotes from Schaefer, C. S. Lewis, Plato, Aristotle, N. T. Wright, Kathleen Norris and a host of others. No one could doubt that Naugle is well read.

The problem with the book is that it comes across at times as a mixed bag of common evangelical maxims for living the Christian life. The book is so peppered with quotes that I lost the argument at times. Most of the quotes I have seen multiple times before in other books. Most of the advice on the Christian walk I have seen in other better books.

The book is good. The doctrine seems mostly sound. It is far deeper than most of the drivel written this century. It is good to be reminded of the spiritual disciplines and how our lives should be ordered around Christ. He quotes so many authors that he does bring up some new perspectives on the old truths. I recommend the book, but there is nothing here that you couldn't get from better authors like Lewis, Schaefer and Richard Foster. This book might be a good starting point to the old masters.

I have read a number of Naugle's essays and find them unfailingly brilliant. I really wanted to like this book as Augustine is a favorite area of study. Some of my disappointment may be due to my own familiarity with the subject, so this can still be a good introduction to Augustine.
