The Gravity of Joy: A Story of Being Lost and Found
(Eerdmans, 2021)

WHO: Angela Williams Gorrell, assistant professor of practical theology at Baylor University’s George W. Truett Theological Seminary.

SHE SAYS: “Joy is what we feel deep in our bones when we realize and fell connected to hat is good, beautiful and meaningful.”

THE BIG IDEA: Resilient joy is the counteragent to despair, addiction and suicide.

THE PROGRESSION:
Through her own story and the stories of others, the author shares how she discovered an authentic, grounded Christian joy.

“Joy has a mysterious capacity to be felt alongside sorrow and even—sometimes most especially—in the midst of suffering.”
