Product DescriptionWhat is happiness? How are we looking for it? Will we know it when we see it? These are questions, along with others, that are addressed in Sr. Joan Chittister's book Happiness. Is happiness as defined by culture, society and advertising really "happiness"? Or is there something more. Chittister suggests we look at many aspects of life and consider whether we feel happy in those situations. Maybe the lack of happiness occurs because we are looking at what we do not have instead of recognizing and being grateful for what we do have.
St. Joan is a Benedictine sister and an internationally known writer and lecturer. She deals in a respectful and pastoral way with many issues people are experiencing and dealing with in today's society. Topics in Happiness deal with "The Universal Quest The Gift of Nature A Commitment to Choose Putting the Pieces Together The Human Dilemma The Eternal Goal". Rabbi Michael Lerner says "This book has gems and insights in every chapter that will guide and awaken the reader to the rich possibilities of life". Chittister says the book is not redefining happiness but, with all the definitions of happiness found in the world today, the book is a study of what happiness is and how we can continue to pursue it.
