Crazy Happy

Nine Surprising Ways to Live the Truly Beautiful Life

Daniel Fusco

About Crazy Happy

Is it crazy to want a happy life? The host of Jesus Is Real Radio and Hillsong Channel’s Real with Daniel Fusco unlocks the happiness we long for in the most famous teachings of Jesus and the apostle Paul.
 
“Don’t just skim through this book quickly. Savor it and discuss it with a friend. Your personal happiness is at stake.”—Rick Warren, author of The Purpose Driven Life, from the foreword
 
Dissatisfied with your life? Yeah, most of us have been there. There’s no shame in wanting to be happy, but real satisfaction often eludes us. At best, what fleeting happiness we find tends to dribble away in never-ending debts, stressful deadlines, and mindless scrolling. At worst, it’s chased away by anxiety, depression, or fallout from our selfishness.
 
Here’s the truth: whether we hunt for happiness in parties, bars, the workplace hustle, or even in church pews, we’ll wind up shortchanged. Why? Because we don’t see our lives as beautiful. 
 
But God wants something better for you—happiness so real this world might think it’s too good to be true.
 
In Crazy Happy, Daniel Fusco unpacks fresh connections in two of the Bible’s most familiar passages—secrets of happiness that can really, truly, honest-to-goodness change things. If you stick around for the ride, you’ll find the kind of God-given beauty that can change your life for good—even in our sometimes-crazy world.

Influential Pastor Daniel Fusco—Host of Hillsong Channel’s “Real with Daniel Fusco”—Unveils a Countercultural Pathway to Living a Truly Beautiful and Happy Life
 
Fusco Explores Spiritually-Rich Insights by Connecting the Beatitudes with the Fruits of the Spirit

“Blessed are the meek...” and “The fruit of the Spirit is love...” So begin The Beatitudes and the Fruit of the Spirit, two of the most beloved passages in the Bible. Each provides incredible wisdom about what makes for a good life. But what happens when we bring these nine teachings and nine fruit together? An incredible biblical synergy that forms a beautiful and surprising invitation to the deep happiness each person desires. It's so simple and so profound we might even be tempted to call it “crazy.”
 
With wit and wisdom, clarity and conviction, Pastor Daniel Fusco unpacks these key teachings of Jesus and Paul for everyday readers in his new book Crazy Happy: Nine Surprising Ways to Live the Truly Beautiful Life (WaterBrook; on sale 2/16/21), with a fresh, redemptive arc toward a blessed future. He shows readers nine countercultural ways that believers’ lives change for good when they learn to see the world like Jesus does, making fresh spiritual connections that can transform their lives for the healthier and happier.
 
In his book, Fusco emphasizes that the Beatitudes are not about doing better or trying harder:      
“The beautiful life of being crazy happy is about you and I learning how to abide in Jesus…even in the real world that faces us every day…so, honestly, we can both acknowledge that even though we don’t have it all together, Jesus is enough.”

Spiritually rich and practically accessible, Crazy Happy will change the way readers see themselves, their family, their neighbors, their enemies, and yes, even God.

“It’s no surprise, but Jesus regularly taught about the beautiful, happy life. In fact, he was quite bold and persistent about it. Yet in a world full of so much pain and despair, it’s quite easy to lose perspective and forget his words. Daniel does a great job in this encouraging, fast-paced, and biblically centered book to remind us of Jesus’s most famous words, Paul’s important teachings, and God’s magnificent outline for a beautiful, happy, and fulfilling life. I think you’ll be blessed to read this book.”—Luis Palau, evangelist
