Reviews - What do our customers think?
Life Changing  Dec 31, 2004
This is a must read for all Christians. It is Biblically sound and will change the way you live. Instead of having to try to perform all the time, we must learn to have faith and let God take over. Ignore the one bad review, the reviewer missed the boat on what Hannah Smith was saying.
A Christian Classic  Dec 23, 2004
Smith has written a classic that will continue to bless long after her passing. The book is divided into three main parts:

1. The Life (how to enter into the Christ life).
2. Difficulties concerning: faith, the will, guidance, doubts, temptation, failures).
3. Results of the Christ-life (growth, service, joy of obedience, practical results in everyday life, etc.).

Written by a Quaker, the book will encourage Christians of all denominations. Read, enjoy, and be encouraged in the Lord.

Highly recommended!
Very encouraging book  Feb 11, 2004
I highly recommend this book. I read it while stationed in Iraq and it encouraged me very much in that situation. It is thoroughly orthodox in its theology and praxis and has nothing to do with modern "psycho-babble" as one other reviewer mistakenly suggested. The book was written over 100 years ago. If it was written today the author most likely would use the term "joyful life" in the title rather than "happy life", but it's clear that her meaning is a happiness that comes from the Lord and is not based on circumstances (which nowadays we would probably call "joy"). Mrs. Smith's secrets to the happy/joyful Christian life are: surrendering all to the Lord, trusting implicitly in the Lord, and immediate obedience to Him. Hard to be more orthodox than that. She gives many anecdotal stories to help the reader understand how much God loves us and how surrender, trust, and obedience result in our abiding more deeply in Christ and consequently having joy in all circumstances.
Simply the best!  Jan 15, 2003
This book has been blessing people for 130 years - there is a reason for that. The reason this book is so great is that it focuses upon the only 2 essential practices for Christian growth and strength: Surrender and Faith. Everything in the book teaches us how to maintain absolute surrender to and total trust in God, how to overcome difficulties so that faith and trust remain steadfast, all mingled with many words of encouragement telling of the peace and joy such a life produces.

The one negative review in this list claims the book is terrible because we should seek holiness, not happiness. Clearly 100% surrender to God's will and 100% faith in God are holiness defined - and that expresses the entire thrust of the book. It is very unlikely that reviewer even read the book beyond the title - ignore them. Jesus wants our joy to be full, He tells us steps to take "so that your joy may be full"....but we better not tell this lone reviewer that Jesus recommends we seek joy - they might give HIM a bad review!

Do what this book says to do and find God waiting there to bless you abundantly with Christ-likeness.....with the natural result being great happiness! I agree with what one review said, if I had to choose only 2 books, they would be the Bible and The Christian's Secret of a Happy Life.

Hope for the Discouraged Christian  Oct 21, 2002
Are you at the point where you are ready to give up on ever being able to live a life that is pleasing to God? I think many Christains are struggling with the difficulty of behaving in ways that are godly. I wanted to be "a good Christian" but found myself in continual failure, I could not speak words of love, I could not give selflessly, or serve selflessly. This book opened my eyes and taught me how to live that life of holiness that God has called me to. It is God who leads us in the paths of righteousness and it is for His namesake (Psalm 23). We cannot do this in our own power! This book holds so many answers to the problems facing many Christains, please take the time to read it!
