Finding True Joy in a World of Counterfeits

René Breuel

104 pages
Lexham Press
If you're looking for happiness, forget about it. Literally.

In an engaging, paradigm-shifting book, René Breuel deconstructs our consumerist models of happiness and proposes a radical, Jesus-based alternative: we don't find happiness when we try to fulfill our desires—we find it when we stop looking for it and start focusing on serving others. By letting go, we find; by giving, we receive.
