Quick Overview:

True joy is not mere happiness. It is not ruled by life’s circumstances. Rich Wagner describes joy as “the nature of God pumped through our bloodstream”---yet most Christians are confused by it. This book reveals the true nature and source of joy, and shows how to receive it as one of Christ’s most precious 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.
