A couple of reviews:

  • “This book is a “must read” for Christians and a vital tool for Bible Study with both brothers and sisters in The Lord and with those you are mentoring and have led to the Lord. You will find yourself jumping for joy.”                    John S.-Indianapolis, In.
  • When going on a trip, your most essential item should be a map to help you reach your destination in the most fulfilling way. “Learning to Agalliao” is just such a map in developing and maintaining your relationship with God. You will find yourself picking out favorite sections wanting to read them again and again. Regardless if you have just begun your walk with God or have been on the path a long time, “Learning to Agalliao” is beautifully written and scripture based covering every step for all travelers. I was pleased to see David’s sense of humor peeping up from time to time which made it all the more enjoyable. I highly recommend that you not only read this book but also give it as a gift. What a blessing                                                                Bobbie Burnett- Lakeside, Arizona
Sometimes it may seem as though God has allowed great pain and trial into your life and you might even wonder if He has abandoned you. It can make your life so very dark. But God desires that even when you are in the position of being persecuted, or even when enduring really difficult circumstances, that you own joy. But Not just any joy, His joy. I know it is possible, I know it can be done, for God has assisted me with this in my own life. He can assist you as well. There is no magic formula, but there is something we must do. 

Here’s an excerpt from “Learning to Agalliao”-       

“And although evil may be able to identify those who are made righteous by means of the blood of Christ, it cannot steal their joy, because their source of joy is God and they will live as though they love God with all their heart and they will love their neighbors as themselves. These two things are the blood on the doorposts that shield us from the enemy. These two things show us as children of the most high God. And the enemy knows that even if that person is attacked, it will neither sway them from the love of God nor from loving God, because they understand and they perceive spiritual matters and their love for God is not determined by circumstance.”

  1. Dave, it’s great! And a challenge. It’s not an option as a Christian. It’s what God desires for us – to delight in Him; to be able to “agalliao” in all circumstances. We know joy is a sign of God’s presence, but jumping for joy is a whole different, deep process. May we always ensure our every effort and focus is only on Christ, so we can fully agalliao! Blessings!

    1. Thank you for the kind words, Raewyn. I agree totally with you. If everyone could only discover that amazing joy found only in the Lord. It’s such a great place to live.
