A Different Kind Of Happiness - Discovering the Joy That Comes From Sacrificial Love
Dr. Larry Crabb
Description: True happiness comes from true relationship--and true relationship comes from sacrificial love
"Larry Crabb has done it again! In A Different Kind of Happiness I've been diagnosed gently, kindly shown Jesus, and then offered a better way. This is a profound, honest, life-changing book. This old cynical preacher found hope here. You will too."--Steve Brown, radio broadcaster, author, and seminary professor
"You will not be able to put this book down. Dr. Crabb shows the way to true happiness and joy--being like Jesus and getting your joy from Him. You may never be quite the same again after reading it."--R. T. Kendall, former minister of Westminster Chapel, London
"Dr. Crabb has a message that challenges the status quo: ultimately the Bible is about relationship. He reminds us that growing in sacrificial other-centeredness is not easy, but it is the way of Christ, which is a critical message for the body of Christ."--Jason Kanz, PhD, ABPP, board certified in clinical neuropsychology, Marshfield Clinic
"While reading this book I found my heart longing to love like Jesus loves. Larry writes in a way that stirs the deepest part of me, which truly does want what God wants. I wish every Christ-follower would read this book and allow God to create a vision in them for loving well."--Bill Lenz, senior pastor, Christ the Rock Community Church, Appleton, Wisconsin
"We were built for happiness. The path there is mostly misidentified and counterintuitive. In this book, Larry points to the life-giving way."--Dr. Kent Denlinger, pastor, Valley Springs Fellowship
How to love when you don't feel like loving
Everywhere we look, we see evidence that love is in short supply. Terror and corruption, school shootings and troubled marriages, impatient online sniping and character assassination--all point to the fact that we do not know how to love one another as Jesus commanded and modeled. We put our own interests, comfort, and happiness first, despite the fact that the greatest happiness comes through sacrificial love.
A Different Kind of Happiness shows you a love that is deeper than being nice and serving others. It's a love that relates to others in such a way that they feel heard, seen, and valued. A love that sacrifices and suffers and keeps loving, even when doing so is costly. This kind of love, says Dr. Larry Crabb, is the kind shown to us by our Creator and Redeemer--and it's the kind worth fighting for in all of our relationships.
