Yes, I know, I’ve been so inactive and busy for a very long time, and I haven’t written any blog within that time. Due to some reasons, I have to temporarily refrain from blogging to prioritize my studies. To end this year, I’d like to leave this book review to all of you; for you to secure a copy of this life-changing book, available at CLC Bookstores.

Written by a Doctor of Medicine, Frank Minirth has written this wonderful piece that really changed my outlook in life. After the success of his best-selling book Happiness is a Choice, I must say that this too could reach the top. Noted that it was written by a Doctor, my first impression is it’s less of Biblical content.

All around the world, many people commit suicide to ‘resolve’ or ‘end’ their problems. Many people lose their contact with reality in their grief. Knowing that life is sometimes rough and hard, can we really be happy in the midst of it all?

After I finished the book, I was so inspired by everything the author has shared, his insights and stories are so light as if you are having a hand to hand talk with him. I just felt that it really touches the inner being.This book is filled with so much useful insights and even facts. From discouragements to stress, to anxiety and anger, to loneliness and grief, Minirth has so much to say. Never miss any single chapter; His advises are not just biblically based but also medically. His experiences and years of being a doctor is very much manifested in this book, that he always include medical terms (which are not confusing) for illnesses and disorders that will enlighten you to live a physically-healthy life (have a free doctor consultation with it!). This book will help you discover how to start over to live a joyous life. At the latter part of it you’ll find very useful resources including bible scriptures for encouragement (what an awesome add-on!), and a Glossary full of theological, physiological and psychological terms (a medical dictionary at the same time, just WOW!). To sum it all, an emotional, spiritual, and physical guide book in one.

Lasting happiness is within your reach. As John 10:10b Amplified Version declares: “I [Jesus] came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance[to the full till it overflows!]” So this life was meant to be a joyous journey. Certainly, you could choose happiness even when life is hard.

Indeed, your happiness depends on you, simply the decision is yours! Decide now and grab a copy of this life changing book! Your life might never be the same again!

Our focus has been to publish books by trusted authors with a clear and timeless message.

Today we are also publishing books by well known authors like Warren Wiersbe and Michael Catt.

Many of our books are influenced by the message of the Keswick movement starting in 1875 in England and therefore some of our older authors have British origins or spoke on the Keswick stage at one time or another. While we do not limit our publishing to the theology of this movement, we are certainly excited to be able to convey the message of the Victorious Christian Life to a new generation.
As a part of CLC International, our books are sold and distributed in countries all over the world including but not limited to the UK, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, South Africa, India, the West Indies, and the Philippines.
