Well, Bob Schultz has done it again. With his characteristically self-effacing and transparent writing, he speaks to the hearts not only of young men, but to each of us. Practical Happiness: A Young Man's Guide to a Contented Life is a collection of concise but captivating stories designed to teach young men that genuine happiness can only be found by seeking the heart of God.
His chapter on job assignments has the potential of radically changing the mood in every household and is worth the price in and of itself. His section on tests revealing truth dares believers who say they love the truth to welcome both tests and the results. These and other riches are waiting to be mined in this thirty-six-chapter book.
Written in a relaxed, conversational tone, Practical Happiness may have been intended for young teens but seems best suited as a read-aloud, maybe as a bonus to your family devotion time. To make discussion as effortless as possible questions are included at the end of each chapter. While aimed at teens, there is nothing written that would not be appropriate for a much younger child to hear, making this book a great gift for any family which aims to raise a generation to glorify God.
