Description

What is the way to obtain happiness? The philosophers debated this question from the very beginning. Unfortunately their answers were highly divided. The Bible offers a distinctive response: it is the way of the cross. Christ said, "I am the way and the truth and the life." The early church referred to itself as "the way." His cross of self-denial brings suffering, but it is also the only way to obtain life and the happiness that the world cannot give. THE WAY is an exploration of what the Bible has to say about happiness. It begins with an analysis of value. What is our highest value? What can make us truly happy? It also examines the Bible's diagnosis of the cause of our unhappiness. It discusses the counterintuitive Beatitudes and the strangeness of a blessing that begins in sorrow. It looks at the importance of love to the way. It discusses such topics as charity, mercy, justice and holiness. Finally it looks toward the restoration of paradise, as the Bible sees it. THE WAY provides practical guidelines for following the way of life and truth. Written in a plain, accessible style, it can be used to stimulate conversations about an important topic that is not often addressed in our churchesshow more
