Finding Lasting Joy in a World of Comparison, Disappointment, and Unmet Expectations
National surveys agree: happiness is not happening. According to the annual Harris Poll Survey of American Happiness, at its highest point only one-third of Americans surveyed said they were happy.1 By some estimates clinical depression is ten times more rampant now than it was a century ago.2 The World Health Organization forecasts that by the year 2020 “depression will become the second leading cause of disease worldwide.”
All this negativity demands the question: Should we give up on the pursuit of happiness?
Pastor and New York Times bestselling author Max Lucado says adamantly no. In his latest book, How Happiness Happens: Finding Lasting Joy in a World of Comparison, Disappointment and Unmet Expectations (Thomas Nelson, September 2019), Lucado offers wisdom for turning humanity’s tide of unhappiness.
