Publisher's Summary

Experience the fullness of the beatitudes in your life.

This course will challenge and inspire you. What does it mean to be a disciple? What does it mean to hunger and thirst for justice in an unjust world?

Pursue these questions and more with Capuchin Michael Crosby as he unlocks the meaning of the beatitudes and the Sermon on the Mount. Fr. Crosby has been teaching Catholics for 30 years, and his book Spirituality of the Beatitudes is cherished by the faithful worldwide. Now you, too, can benefit from his wisdom with this insightful series.

A deeper examination of Matthew's Gospel shows that the code of conduct laid out in the beatitudes is meant for all people. As disciples of Jesus, we are called to value the beatitudes personally, communally, and collectively. We follow Jesus in his vision and effort to create an alternative community, defined by the beatitudes and defiant of the wider culture. Following Jesus' way of wisdom, we build our lives, relationships, and church on solid rock so that we can be "salt for the earth" and "light for the world".

Explore the profound message of the beatitudes in Scripture, society, and your life.

book review

this was hard for me. i did not like his use of kindom, as opposed to Kingdom. Kingdom should never be but what it is, GOD'S KINGDOM .

Excellent

At times a bit too heavily slanted toward the social gospel approach but none the less a great read.
