31 Days to Happiness

Pastor David Jeremiah has written a very practical book in 31 Days to Happiness: How to Find What Really Matters in Life.  This is an easy to read book which is based on the book of Ecclesiastes.  This is not a commentary, yet can be referred to as a practical commentary.  Jeremiah seeks to lead the reader through the life of Solomon as he looks through Ecclesiastes, chapter by chapter. 

Ultimately, Jeremiah's goal is to help the reader understand what Solomon struggled with in his later years, as he exclaimed, "Vanity is vanities, all is vanity."  There was a profound meaninglessness to Solomon, even though he had it all.

Jeremiah breaks the book down into 31 chapters.  Each chapter consists of approximately 10 pages.  It's a book which can be read in a few days, but I would recommend taking your time and digesting what he had to say and how it can relate to our lives.

Jeremiah uses a great number of examples to help the reader understand the attainment and the failures of other people.  31 Days to Happiness was easy to read and understand, but it would have been great if a Study Guide was included in the book.

I received this book at no cost from Thomas Nelson publishers in exchange for an unbiased review.
