Zig Ziglar: The Victorious Life

Hello All,

I post this interview because Ziglar’s Christian philosophy offers an antidote to the world-denying ethos of suffering, which is prevalent in some Christian piety. Ziglar asserts that the life of faith (and morality generally) lead one to success and happiness, in this world here and now. Our happiness is not relegated to the distant hereafter even though the fate of our life here and now does, in some way, hinge on our sense of the eternal. Please note that I do not agree with all of Ziglar’s views nor with the conservative Christian morality that he presupposes.

Here’s his faith testimony. See link: Confessions of a Happy Christian
