Publisher's Description


According to the Beatitudes, we should pursue happiness in the Lord. We need to adopt a theology of happiness. The pursuit of happiness is common to all people. It is the motive behind much of what we do. But the path to true happiness is far different than people think.

This nine-session course investigates the joys that can be found in knowing God and living his way.
