Living the Beatitudes Today
by Guy Robert Peel Steward
Genres: Bible Study & Devotionals, Christian Living
Living the Beatitudes Today looks at the basic building blocks of the Christian life – found in Jesus’s first recorded sermon — and unveils how they act like a hinge between the Old and New Covenants, encapsulating the law of Moses, the messages of the prophets, plus the teachings of Jesus and of all the New Testament.
Living the Beatitudes Today reveals the power of the two greatest commandments and of the golden rule. It examines the clear theological and practical implications of the Beatitudes for the believer in Christ, challenges the wrong assumptions about the Beatitudes, and invites the seeker to step out on a journey, through an understanding of the Beatitudes, towards a lifetime of ever-increasing connection with their Creator, and to truly live the Beatitudes today.
