Item description for Champagne for the Soul: Rediscovering God's Gift of Joy by Mike Mason...

Overview
If you were given the chance to be happy for the rest of your life, wouldn't you jump at it? In Champagne for the Soul, bestselling author Mike Mason explains that the Bible does make this offer. Yet most of us hang back, reluctant and skeptical. Theologically most Christians will agree that the Bible teaches and offers a life of joy; yet deep down we're not convinced that such a life is practical---for us or any ordinary person. But, says Mason, such joy truly is ours to claim and embrace. What you now hold in your hands is a call to throw off all worries and complaints and to "come and share your master's happiness" (Matthew 25:21). Is it possible to live every day in joy? You will never know if you don't try. These pages, drawn from the author's own ninety-day experiment in actively pursuing joy, will lead you on a journey that will help you-no matter what your circumstances---to escape the trap of worry, fear, and dullness and grab hold of the joy of the Lord.

Publishers Description
"The injunction 'Get real' usually means 'Leave your world of fantasy and return to what really is.' True Realism always and everywhere is to find out where joy resides. In the past year this magical gift got lost or mislaid in my life. Mike Mason has located it, given it voice, and helped me to recover it. Even one sip of Champagne for the Soul is a heady, exhilarating experience." -Brennan Manning, author of A Glimpse of Jesus: The Stranger to Self-Hatred If you were given the chance to be happy for the rest of your life, wouldn't you jump at it?

Reviews - What do customers think about Champagne for the Soul: Celebrating God's Gift of Joy?

Second time's a charm.  Aug 13, 2008
First time through it was sort of like reading Greek. I just had great difficulty grasping the concepts. I put it down for six months and picked it up again at the beginning. For some reason, it resonated with me and has since. Sadly, I am sure there is more than one evangelical that won't touch it because "champagne" is in the title. Their loss.
 
Joy is always available!  Mar 11, 2008
This is a very easy to read, practical book on joy. Joy and happiness are not hidden things, but can be experienced daily, as the writer of this book shares. This book has helped me to realize that I don't have to search for happiness as I have done previously in my life. As the author shared his practical experiences of daily joy, I have identified similar events in my life that I realized were moments of happiness. As I practice looking for the happiness that already exists in my life, I am more aware of what's been there all along for me--gifts of happiness from God.
 
Champagne for the Soul  Feb 10, 2008
The book is wonderful! It's just like a delicious taste of champagne that really fills you with joy. When I feel down I go pick up this book for a quick "pick-me-up" as the chapters are short and "just enough". I am so in love with this book and I would highly recommend it.
 
A jewel of a book  Jan 17, 2008
Mike Mason is truly a gifted writer. Each chapter is filled with shiny nuggets of truth and inspiration. I keep my highlighter handy. This is a book to be read over and over again.
 
Champagne for the soul  Jan 7, 2008
I started reading this book like I do most books - by devouring it. But its too good! I had to go back, re-read and savor each chapter like a really good meal. I found myself discussing the chapters with friends and sharing our thoughts and desire to live a life of Joy - the only true joy - from Jesus! I recommend this book to anyone tired of striving to be joyful day to day - it is changing my life and the lives of those closest to me.
