Reviews - What do customers think about Christian's Secret Of A Happy Life?
Poor condition from packing and shipping May 13, 2008
I received 3 new books from this site with the super saver shipping. When they arrived, they were in a large box with only a little bit of that inlatable packing on the top-nothing to keep the books from shifting around. Nothing around the books or between the books.
A christian's Secret to a Happy Life arrived with the binding crushed on one end from not being adequately protected in the box.
Love the book, not happy with the shoddy packing.
The "secret" every Christian needs to know Apr 27, 2008
So many Christians struggle with every day life--just like the rest of the world. While some secrets place all the power on "self," which fails us more often than not, this one places all the power in God's hands where it belongs. This timeless classic stays relevant because it communicates biblical truths that make a difference for all eternity.
A Must Read for Any Christian Apr 10, 2008
There are very few treatises on the Christian life written with more insight, humility, and honesty.
It is not an easy read, Ms Smith is writing in the language of her day, which is above the eighth grade level used in today's books. It is worthy of your efforts, however. The exercise for your brain, soul, and spirit will do you some good.
Kudos to Whitaker House for keeping this important book in print.
Wonderful book! Sep 30, 2007
This is a wonderful book - written in a simple, clear style yet filled with deep insight. The author has a true heart for God, and writes with compassion for her brothers and sisters in Christ.
Zigging a little where others zag Mar 18, 2007
Of the reviews listed here as of this date, only one departs from a laudatory amen.
Ms. Smith has offered a perspective which I believe could be an advance for some but possibly a snare for others.
With only a an uncertain grasp of her life gleaned from surfing the net, these thoughts present themselves:
Much like Christ himself, she grew up in a religious tradition (Quakerism) that her spiritual journey required her to depart from. It is fairer to say the book has been written by a religious rebel than by a Quaker.
Again, like Christ, she looks to God the Father.
Like Christ, she attracted followers and supporters.
Like Christ, within the boundaries of loving God, she offers faith and hope. I come away from Christ with more of a sense of the importance of charity than I do after reading Ms. Smith.
Again, assuming that biographical material perused after reading the book is true, the encouragement and success of the book is understandable. However, material is never confronted which might have been had the book title been 'The Joy of Being Crucified With Christ'
