Hannah Whitall Smith wrote The Christian's Secret of a Happy Life in 1875, originally as an article for her husband's magazine. The book subsequently became a worldwide best seller that has influenced generations of readers. In the preface she explains, 'This is not a theological book. I frankly confess that I have not been trained in theological schools and do not understand their methods nor their terms.

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. ( )
