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.
