Two lively young narrators – Eric Johnson and Jennifer Milani – help to interpret world-renowned experts who provide contemporary evidence for God, the soul, the resurrection of Jesus, and the purpose of suffering. An illustrated, user-friendly Study Guide is also available with summaries, study questions, definitions, biographies, and references.
This 7-episode video series is designed to answer the most fundamental questions affecting our lives — our happiness, purpose, dignity, and sense of destiny:
- What is happiness — and how can we be optimally happy?
- What makes life worth living — and even optimally worth living?
- Do we have a transcendent eternal soul through which God calls us to himself?
- Why does God allow suffering — and how can we suffer well?
The authors of this program selected world-renowned experts in these four areas to present the most contemporary scientific, medical, psychological, philosophical, and theological evidence to answer these questions. These interviews are framed within an accessible dialogue between two young people — Eric Johnson and Jennifer Milani – who help explain the experts’ major points and principles. An illustrated, user-friendly, Happiness, The Workbook is also available with summaries, study questions, definitions, biographies, and references.
Interviewees include: Eduardo Verastegui, Dr. Gary Habermas, Dr. John Lennox, Leah Darrow Dr. Jan Holden, Dr. Aaron Kheriaty, John Chavez and our own Fr. Robert Spitzer, S.J., Ph.D.

Still happy?
How do we keep the happiness “buzz”. St. Theresa of Avila once said, “There are no sad saints”. H’mmm, That follows along the path of Fr. Spitzer’s Four Levels of Happiness. Start with Linguini and aspire to… well, you’ll have to check it out for yourself.
