Product Description

For decades, scientific research on the brain focused on studying negative behaviors and emotions like depression and anxiety. More recently, research was conducted to discover what causes and sustains feelings of happiness. As Dr. Henry Cloud read these new findings he was astounded to see that what makes our brains happy is what the Bible has taught for thousands of years. In essence, he discovered scientific proof that happiness can be found by living life as God designed it to be lived.
In The Law of Happiness, Dr. Cloud shares his findings and outlines the actions and attitudes that bring true happiness and well-being. Learn how actions like giving, forgiving, and setting boundaries, produce positive chemical changes in your brain and enable spiritual health and growth. By making simple choices every day, you can discover a new way of living that will transform your life and give you the joy you've been seeking.
The Law of Happiness is the winner of the 2012 Christian Book Award for Inspiration.

Publisher's Description

Drawing from the latest scientific and psychological research on the quest for happiness, The Law of Happiness reveals that the spiritual truths of the Bible hold the secrets to the happiness we desire. As Dr. Cloud unpacks these universal, eternal principles, he reveals that true happiness is not about circumstances, physical health, financial success, or even about the people in our lives. In other words, it’s not about the factors that are frequently beyond our control. Rather, happiness is found in choosing to become the kind of people God created us to be.

With chapter titles like "Happy People Connect," "Happy People Are Envy-Free," "Happy People Have a Calling," and "Happy People Forgive," Cloud shows just how happiness is achieved as he sets readers on a pathway of spiritual transformation that connects them with the God of the universe. With these new tools, readers will discover that their relationships, their careers, and their inner selves are infused with the joy they’ve been seeking.

Publisher's Weekly

If there is a technique for achieving happiness, it is maintaining a positive attitude. The author (The Secret Things of God) and radio host searches the scriptures and laws of human behavior to find common elements of contentment. "When we realize that we are working for God, every task becomes significant and meaningful," he writes. Happy people follow 14 simple principles outlined in the book; they are based on the Bible and require acting in faith. Cloud advocates getting the right attitude, forgiving ourselves and others, and then setting and pursuing definite goals. This simple book does a great job integrating the Bible into everyday life, especially for those looking for calling in life. It will appeal to the Christian reader who liked Rhonda Byrne's The Secret. (Jan.) Copyright 2011 Reed Business Information.

    This book's bottom line could read : "How to succeed in life in every area, God's way. The style and language of this book would lend itself to being accepted by non-Christians who were seeking some answers to problem areas in their lives. It is not "preachy" but clear and simple but speaks volumes into your life in a very profound way. Christians should find this book, if prayerfully read, allowing God to shine His light of truth into their hearts, a revelation of freedom to be who God has called you to be as a result.

    Thoroughly enjoyed this book and have ordered his first book in this series.
