HOW CAN I BE HAPPY? (AND OTHER CONUNDRUMS)PAUL GRIFFITHS & M. ROBINSON Book Number: 87105 Product format: Paperback
A special book about life's puzzling spiritual questions - who am I? If there is a God, what is he or she like? What happens after I die? How can I be happy? Why is there suffering in the world? What is the spiritual world and how does it impact my life? These are questions of identity, destiny, happiness, suffering and the spiritual world and today many of us struggle to find a vocabulary to frame or express the questions that are often just below the surface of our lives. The book is an invitation to explore what these questions might look like and is a six-session course called Puzzling Questions, aimed to provide a safe place for people to consider, reflect on and talk about some of the questions they are carrying. People today go to their GP not only to talk about their physical issues but also their mental, pastoral and spiritual issues, things that are actually affecting their health. The authors have been shaped in their own perspectives by the life and teaching of Jesus, and it is on these points of reference that they draw throughout the book. There are dozens of examples and anecdotes: "For many years Paul was invited to head off to South Korea to speak at various churches." "When Jane was 18 she was diagnosed with ME." 157pp in paperback.
