Explaining that an inability to find happiness occurs because of a failure to look in the right places, a guide based on the Beatitudes reveals that happiness is a by-product of seeking what is truly important. Reprint.Publishers Description
Happiness. It's what we all long for, what all human beings seek in our jobs, our relationships, our activities. We try so hard to be happy, and all too often we end up empty and unsatisfied. Why? Because, says Billy Graham in this classic work, we are looking for happiness in all the wrong places.
We haven't learned the secret Jesus taught in the Beatitudes - that true, lasting happiness simply isn't to be found by seeking it directly. Happiness is a by-product, a bonus that comes when we seek what is really important. And the things that will bring us the satisfaction we long for are not necessarily what the world considers meaningful.
Jesus did not have to have an outward stimulus to make Him happy, Billy Graham points out. "He had learned a secret that allowed Him to live above the circumstances of life and fear of the future. He moved with calmness, certainty, and serenity through the most trying circumstances - even death What was His secret? He gave it to us in the Beautitudes."
Presented with Billy Graham's characteristic vigor and simplicity in this landmark book, it is a secret that can transform your life.

|The Secret of Happiness--The Sermon on the Mount Revisited Oct 14, 2000|
|The Secret of Happiness is a devotional exposition of the beatitudes (Matthew 5:3-10) and a must-read for all Christians. Each chapter explains a beatitude, puts the beatitude in a spiritual context, and discusses why Christians should pay attention. |
Graham's exposition is lucid and to the point. The book was first published in 1957 and it includes, at least in the first printing, a priceless portrat of Graham as a young man.
I have read this book twice. The first time was in college. I reading it again now in mid-career on the death of my grandfather. My grandfather loved this book enough that he donated a copy to the church library where it remained for 20 years. I receieved this book as an heirloom.
