About the Lecture

Happiness (and the lack of it) is big business. It motivates a huge industry, advertising, self-help, and much therapy. Being happy is a big focus of human life—and has been for generations. The Bible actually has much to say about happiness, particularly in the Psalms, yet we rarely teach or preach about happiness as a Christian concern. What do the Psalms have to tell us, and how can they help us shape a distinctively biblical vision for happiness?
