Item Description...
If we have a particle of sense, St. Augustine said, we realize that we all want to be happy. In fact, we were designed to crave happiness - human happiness was actually God's original idea. Why is it, then, that it so often cannot be found? Are we looking in the wrong places? David K. Naugle begins with the biblical creation account, arguing that God's plan for happiness was based around a loving relationship with the Creator, our work, relationships, food, rest and recreation, homes and habitats - an "edenistic" happiness called shalom. Then the plan went wrong: man sinned against God. Now separate from the Creator, man attached his loves in excessive ways to various things to fill the need for that perfect love now missing. Yet while searching for that happiness, our disordered loves have disordered our lives. Our quest for happiness results in misery. Only the restoration of a loving relationship with God can bring us back into shalom. Naugle here presents a counter cultural - both secular and church culture - view of happiness, drawing us back to the original and perfect model we must strive for. Reordered Love, Reordered Lives points readers to the transforming power of the gospel of Jesus Christ in order to discover the truly happy life in God.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A good hodge podge  Jun 8, 2009
I heard professor Naugle interviewed on Mars Hill Audio. He talked about the seven vices and the seven virtues. I was intrigued so I ordered the book. The book had quotes from Schaefer, C. S. Lewis, Plato, Aristotle, N. T. Wright, Kathleen Norris and a host of others. No one could doubt that Naugle is well read.

The problem with the book is that it comes across at times as a mixed bag of common evangelical maxims for living the Christian life. The book is so peppered with quotes that I lost the argument at times. Most of the quotes I have seen multiple times before in other books. Most of the advice on the Christian walk I have seen in other better books.

The book is good. The doctrine seems mostly sound. It is far deeper than most of the drivel written this century. It is good to be reminded of the spiritual disciplines and how our lives should be ordered around Christ. He quotes so many authors that he does bring up some new perspectives on the old truths. I recommend the book, but there is nothing here that you couldn't get from better authors like Lewis, Schaefer and Richard Foster. This book might be a good starting point to the old masters.
