Joy, a gift of the Spirit, is a rare commodity in society. Contains some of the key features of joy, and encouragement to rejoice.

The theme of joy is mentioned only infrequently in the media. The author explores the question of why joy, a gift of the Spirit, appears to be such a rare commodity in our society. He offers reflections on some of the key features of joy, and encourages us to rejoice, to ‘do joy’. This book has its origin in a sermon preached on 29 August 2010 in the context of a retreat given to the Community of the Sisters of the Love of God at Fairacres, Oxford.
