Recently we interviewed Dr. David Murray, Professor of Old Testament and Practical Theology at Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary, about his latest book, The Happy Christian. Austin and I enjoyed a lively discussion with David as we talked about such topics from the book as the new “happy psychology” research, the impact of news on our emotional state, and the joy we can have in appreciating the differences of others. I hope you will give it a listen below.

If you desire a happiness that is much truer than the latest platitude from Joel Osteen, reaches much deeper than the positive psychology offered by Gretchen Rubin, and lasts longer than a Pharrell Williams’ song, then you should read – and apply – The Happy Christian. Here is my endorsement.
While interacting with secular researchers, popular authors, and theologians both ancient and modern, in his newest book David Murray opens up the Scriptures and offers immensely practical means for cultivating the abundant life Jesus promises to his people. Thankfully, I can also attest that David not only teaches these truths, but lives them, which causes their authenticity to ring through the pages.
