You want to be happy.
It's okay to admit it. We all want to be happy. But beyond our culture's superficial definition of happiness is joy. True joy persists despite adversity. It lifts us up during spiritual dry spells. It comes from God and is returned to God in the form of worship and praise, such as we find in the Psalms.
But can it really be yours?
In The Broken Road to Joy, Matthew Jacoby answers with an emphatic yes and then mines Scripture to show you how to find it, grasp it, and hold on to it no matter what comes your way.
Matthew Jacoby is the teaching pastor at Barrabool Hills Baptist Church in Geelong, Victoria, Australia, and the leading member of the Psalms project band Sons of Korah. Matthew has a doctorate in philosophy and theology from the University of Melbourne, Australia. He teaches often on the spirituality of the Psalms.
