In the early 1960s, it became obvious to me that real happiness didn't lie in material success, adulation or celebrity. I'd experienced them all and they didn't provide for me that elusive, deep-down contentment. Here one of our most gifted Christian communicators spells out what I began to discover for myself all those years ago. Please read. It could well change your life. * Sir Cliff Richard, OBE *
In a world filled with quick recipes for instant happiness, J. John's exploration of the profound teaching of Jesus - which has fascinated the world for two millennia - is filled not only with uncommon honesty but, more than that, with a depth of insight that bears the ring of truth. * Steve Chalke, MBE, Founder of Oasis Global, UN Special Advisor on Human Trafficking *
J. John is one of a kind, and I have a deep respect for him as a speaker, teacher and friend. THE HAPPINESS SECRET based on the Beatitudes is truly wonderful. Whether you're outside the church looking in, or whether you already follow Christ, this book will teach you much about the secret to living a happy and blessed life. * Matt Redman *
J. John and I have been close friends for years. Few people inspire me as he does, whether having a meal with him or listening to him preach. But the people who can write as well as they can preach - or preach as well as they can write - are exceedingly rare. J. John is that rare person. We have written on much the same subjects, but when I read his material I am amazed at how much I had missed. His treatment of the Beatitudes is a perfect example. It reflects a scholar's research, a writer's carefulness, a preacher's passion and a soul-winner's heart. You will be stirred, thrilled and helped by reading this book. It is theologically sound, easy to read, full of wisdom and motivated by the honour and glory of God. I recommend it to the hilt. * Dr R. T. Kendall *
J. John is a superb communicator and he is a man who lives out what he teaches. He is always down to earth, humorous and practical. * Revd Nicky Gumbel *
J. John is one of the most creative, influential, and respected evangelists in the world today. I have known and admired him for years. If you want to know the real secret, of true happiness, you must read this book. With his inimitable style of clarity, conviction, warmth and humor,
J. John has taken these "be-attitudes" of Jesus, and translated them in a way that they become guides and realities in the midst of the everyday challenges of life in the 21st century.
* Dr Leighton Ford *
J. John has a unique ability and gift to take profound truth and make it comprehensible and accessible to the masses. When I began reading THE HAPPINESS SECRET, my spirit leapt and I found myself not only wishing that I could read faster, but thinking of all the people that I would
enthusiastically be giving it to. I am confident that this book will divinely find its way into the lives of many, and that it will clarify and make simple questions that have haunted the human soul down through the ages.
