Asher brings together personal testimony, biblical wisdom, and practical guidance to lead readers toward Jesus in the midst of difficult circumstances.

The free accompanying 6-week video course is perfect for church small groups seeking to re-focus on Jesus in daily life. A detailed discussion guide makes it simple for leaders. Download the videos and the guide below.

Testimonial Quote Icon

I have known Oliver Asher for about sixteen years. He embodies "invincible joy." He always has a smile on his face. I had no idea of his story until he handed me this manuscript, which made his joy that much more remarkable. He lives the principle of this book. I heartily recommend Invincible Joy. Run, do not walk, to your bookstore or to Amazon to buy this book. You will be glad you did. I have a feeling you will read and reread it — like I am.

Oliver’s timely book touched my heart, drew me closer to God, and made me think about God’s plans for my own life. I highly recommend this book to those experiencing difficult times, those fighting depression, those who want to make their lives on this earth count for others, and those who want to live life to the fullest with Invincible Joy!
