Happiness 101 Class (DVD): A Biblical Invitation to Joy and Delight in Christ

Is God happy? Should His children be happy?

Many believers today are taught that God wants us to be holy, but not happy, and that joy and happiness are fundamentally different. They’ve even been left with the impression that God Himself isn’t happy.

But joy, gladness, delight, celebration, and happiness in Christ are based on solid redemptive facts, including God’s love and sovereignty. Through the Gospel, called in Isaiah 52:7 the “good news of happiness,” God makes possible a settled happiness in Him despite life’s very real difficulties and sorrows.

The Happiness 101 class, filmed at author Randy Alcorn's Western Seminary course, contains 12 one-hour sessions on 6 DVDs that will guide your study of our God-given quest for happiness. Randy examines the triune God’s own happiness that makes Him the source of ours, as well as the rich constellation of Hebrew and Greek happiness synonyms in Scripture. You’ll discover how the most popular Bible translations have obscured many happiness passages, and how the now pervasive evangelical contrast between joy and happiness is both unbiblical and misleading.

This video series will help you cultivate a foundational happiness in Christ that enriches you, encourages your family and friends, and draws unbelievers to Jesus.

The people of God ought to be the happiest people in all the wide world! —A. W. Tozer

I really enjoyed the class. Randy did an excellent job teaching! This is really a paradigm shifting truth. I know it will have an impact upon my ministry! – J.S., pastor

Note from Randy Alcorn: If you’re new to our website, please ignore this. We are just glad to have you here! For our regulars, giving to EPM is significantly down this year, over 39% compared to previous years, which means more has been going out of our account than coming in. If you feel led by God to support us, we would greatly appreciate any gifts to our general fund. We aren’t worried, as God has faithfully provided for our ministry for 33 years. But if you’ve found our resources to be helpful, we invite you to consider making a one-time or recurring gift to help fund our eternity-shaping work.

Jesus said, “Freely you have received, freely give” (Matt. 10:8). It’s our joy to share freely what God has so graciously entrusted to us. We are here to serve everyone without cost, so please do not feel pressured to give!
