This book on Christ's Beatitudes provides a fresh perspective on this essential teaching of Jesus. Lawrence Pencook gives new insight into these pertinent truths and their application in our daily lives. His presentation for the application of these principles will enhance your walk with the Lord and your effectiveness as a disciple. I heartily recommend this book as a back to basics approach to the Beatitudes. -Reverend Lewis R. Barton (MDiv) Pastor Lifeline Baptist Church. Almost everyone is familiar with Christ's Beatitudes. But why did he speak them and how do you live them? This powerful book shows the path Jesus gave to grow closer to Him and to become an authentic citizen of the Kingdom of Heaven. You learned them as a child; you know them as the center of his teachings, so now what do you do with them? Even though they may seem far-fetched and pie-in-the-sky in today's culture; they are a part of coming to faith that will outline your spiritual growth in Christ. No matter how well you think you know, or live the Beatitudes, this book will renew your understanding to the way of the Lord. This is a fresh interpretation that will impact every aspect of your life and consequently you will greatly impact the Kingdom of Heaven to the glory of God.
