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.

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.”
