Richard E. Howard
The book is based on two fundamental propositions:
1. Ultimately, we desire two things – and two things only – in this life: Joy and Peace.
2. Ultimately, God promises to provide two things – and two things only – in this life: Joy and Peace.
Complicating matters is the not-so-insignificant fact that we are born into a world where many times good people suffer and bad people prosper (at least temporarily).
It all comes down to the age-old question of: How can I find true happiness in a fallen world?
