God revealed grace to this woman many years before the grace movement.
She describes it as the secret to a happy Christian life. She is correct. God's grace brings happiness, life, liberty, and love into our lives. One of my favorite books of all time. ( )

This spells out basic concepts of Christianity that are frequently forgotten/missed/misunderstood in all different Christian denominations. I studied theology, Bible, and Catholic apologetics for six years during school, and somehow the fundamental ideas that Hannah Whitall Smith articulates were completely lost to me. This book is valuable. ( )

This book is practical; it deals with daily duties, deeds and decisions. It is personal; the other is no daydreaming spectator with her head in the clouds and her feet caught in the clods of the field; she had had knowledge and hard knowledge and beautiful balance. Powerful, unmarred by petty bickering's over face incidentals, this book is swept men into the ministry, selfish layman into unselfish living at the command of Christ

Though her life was difficult, Hannah Whitall Smith's message was joyful. In the Christian's Secret of a Happy Life, she writes that "e;Jesus came to save you fully now, in this life, from the power and dominion of sin, and to deliver you altogether."e; Passionate and practical, Whitall Smith's classic of the Holiness movement focuses not on human effort but on simple, stubborn faith in the Savior and Sanctifier of the soul.… (more)
