The Saints' Guide to Happiness: Practical Lessons in the Life of the Spirit

"What is happiness and how can I find it?" may be one of the most frequently asked questions there is. Perhaps that's because it is so hard to experience lasting happiness.

In The Saints' Guide to Happiness, Robert Ellsberg suggests that some of the best people to show us are holy men and women throughout history- from Augustine to Flannery O'Connor, Thomas Merton to Teresa of Avila and Mother Teresa. These people weren't saints because of the way they died or their visions or wondrous deeds. They were saints because of their extraordinary capacity for goodness and love, which- in the end- makes us happy.


"Robert Ellsberg regards saints as friends worth knowing... for their uncommon wisdom as people who discovered that happiness and holiness are the same thing." -Kenneth L. Woodward, author of Making Saints

"Neither a quick fix nor a stiff tome, but a modern, refreshing guide to a true life and the kind of happiness that lasts." -Nora Gallagher, author of Practicing Resurrection
