The Christian's Secret of a Happy Life
Full Product Description
The Christian's Secret of a Happy Life opens with the words: “No thoughtful person can question the fact that, of the most part, the Christian life as it is generally lived, is not entirely a happy life. A keen observer once said to me," writes the author, “You Christians seem to have a religion that makes you miserable.” This was when Hannah Smith, saw for the first time that the religion of Christ ought to be something to make its possessors happy, not miserable and, in her words, “I began then and there to ask the Lord to show me the secret of a happy Christian life.”
In the following pages of her 10 million copy bestseller, the famous Quaker thinker goes back to the Bible to find what faith in Christ was meant to do for us, why we sometimes won’t allow it, and what to do to overcome our resistance to the love and grace of God that could and would transform our earthly lives.
"One of the most inspiring and influential books we have ever read." -- Dale Evans and Roy Rogers.
Written over 130 years ago, Hannah discovered that there is a way to handle the stresses of life in a healthy way that builds us up instead of tearing us down. That way of dealing with life’s trials is through living faithfully in the rest and comfort that Jesus offers. True contentment, she shows, does not come from an absence of difficulty, but through the loving embrace of our Saviour even in the worst of it.

The Christian's Secret of a Happy LifeMelanie Carroll, via The Good Book Stall
A lovely exceptionally affordable edition of what is probably one of the best known "Quaker" books out there. Though written over 100 years ago this book still reads as well today as it ever has, there are in these simple honest words and thoughts by Hannah Whitall Smith a timeless wisdom and beauty that encourages you on in your own faith. There is strength and purpose, courage and determination and unremitting faith on every page, and all of it simple to understand, easy to read and a blessing to recieve. "It depends only upon the fact of an entire surrender and an absolute trust. Anyone who will honestly use these two wings, and will faithfully persist in using them, will find they have mounted up with wings as an eagle, no matter how empty of all emotion they may have felt themselves to be before." (pp248). A beautiful work and at a bargain price - this is a brilliant book.
