Choosing Joy really surprised me. I didn’t know what to expect reading a book about joy.
It was conversational and easy to read. It kept me interested the whole way through with entertaining stories and comments that literally had me “laughing out loud”.
Lord had a down to earth approach, he didn’t claim to be an expert on Joy nor felt as though he had mastered the acquisition of it either. He presented a well researched theory and called upon the example of his Father as his model. He shared his personal journey from his past as frontman of a band, his personal struggles and how anxiety, materialism and narcissism are obstacles to joy.
Intelligently written and insightful, I found myself nodding my head as it confirmed so many things I believed. I particularly enjoyed the section at the end of the book on heaven.
I received many fascinating new insights from this book. I have already recommended this book to many people I know. A fantastic book!
