Abstract:

Do you want to be happy? Doesn't everyone? Then why is happiness so elusive? Dr. Robert Schuller suggests it is because too many have the wrong idea about happiness, looking for it in wealth, fame, relationships, or recreational drugs. If only we could find relief from problems -- then we'd be happy. But strangely, somehow, we never seem to run out of problems! So how CAN we be truly happy? The answer, says Dr. Schuller, is found in the most famous section of the Sermon on the Mount, known as the Beatitudes.
