The new book by Robert W. Boyd, III, Does God Want You to be Happy? A Christian Perspective on Overcoming Obstacles to Joy, ($13.99, paperback, 9781498423489; $6.99, e-book, 9781498423496) addresses the most difficult problems that people face in the world today, utilizing highly impactful personal stories supported by a host of Biblical references. The aforementioned references reflect how the Bible offers very specific guidelines for overcoming those obstacles to joy that everyone encounters at one time or another, such as: fear, worry, loneliness, loss, grief, guilt, lust, and illness, to name a few.
“[This book] addresses the human condition, problems and obstacles to joy from a very down to earth perspective providing real life stories to illustrate the issues,” states the author. “It then, in a very clear and straightforward fashion, offers a host of extremely relevant Scripture, from both the Old and New testaments, enabling the reader to understand clearly what it is that God wants him/her to do. The reader always has a choice, to follow the ways of the world and continue to suffer, or to follow the teachings of Jesus and find a path to a life of joy.”
Robert W. Boyd, III, is a cum laude Princeton graduate with a degree in romance languages and literature. He is a Stephen Minister and an elected lay leader of Ingomar United Methodist Church, Pittsburgh, PA. His son is an ordained minister, missionary, and Bible translator for the Enga people in Papua New Guinea. Like his son, Bob feels that the way he can have the greatest impact on solving the problems confronting our world is by reaching out and helping others understand how much better off we all would be if Jesus’ message were known, understood, and accepted by everyone. “Does God Want You to be Happy?” is an extension of that desire, and is the author’s offering of a clear and understandable message: No matter what problems you face, God is there to help, if you are open to listening to him.
