Seven Things That Steal Your Joy

Overcoming the Obstacles to Your Happiness
Borrow Borrow
Throughout the Bible, from "make a joyful noise" to "rejoice in the Lord always," believers are encouraged to be joyful. Not only does joy foster good feelings, but it also promotes strength and health. However, the stresses of the world often make joy difficult to come by. Now, Joyce Meyer offers numerous examples from Scripture to remind listeners that God promises a joyful attitude to anyone open to receiving it. She examines the seven pitfalls that prevent most people from living a joyful life and offers solutions to overcoming each of them. Then, in her honest and straightforward style, she encourages listeners to make the decision to enjoy life—not just once in a while or when things are going well, but in every circumstance—every day.

    March 29, 2004
    Meyer, host of the television show Life in the Word
    and author of a multitude of Christian books, presents a good survey of biblical texts referring to the central place of joy in the believer's life, but her conclusions from those verses do little more than restate the obvious. She gives advice to combat various "Joy Stealers" such as religious legalism, excessive reasoning, ungodly anger and envy, but her directives can be oversimplified: "Arm yourself with the kind of thinking that says, I would rather suffer than fail to please God. If you surrender to Him, you will never again intentionally disobey God." The book's language often slips into a very heavily Christian subculture accent: "I'll tell you what I'm believing for this year, Mom. I'm believing to walk in love with every person I come in contact with." Despite these drawbacks—and the fact that Meyer has already tackled many of these topics in her earlier titles—her basic, straightforward discussion will appeal to many readers, walking them through some valuable self-examination. The desire most people have for more joy, coupled with Meyer's growing name recognition, will make this a popular book. (Apr. 6)

    Forecast:
    Joyce Meyer has sold more than six million copies of her books to date, more than 1.2 million of them in the last year alone. She currently dominates the CBA Charismatic bestseller list, with four of the top five titles
    .

  • AudioFile Magazine Why aren't we happy when we have so much? In a clear voice resonating with conviction, Meyer offers practical concepts to add joy to your life. She urges her listeners to obey God and lists seven common joy stealers. Personal testimonies highlight her concepts and are woven throughout the tape, making it sound as if she's telling what happened to herself or a friend. Competent but a bit repetitive, this production provides hope delivered by a compassionate speaker. Though music at the beginning and between CD tracks is sometimes inappropriately ominous sounding, the remaining music is upbeat and enhances the production. A.G.H.
