Jesus was giving us life lessons . . . ways to live our lives in a manner which brings glory to God and demonstrates love for others. Garrard seeks to do the same for us.
In each of the 8 chapters, he tells stories about the different beatitudes and ways they have been realized in the lives of so many people.
Garrard is a former guitarist in the groups Delirious?, one of my favorite Christian rock bands. He brings a unique perspective to this book.
It is well worth reading. It can be used as a devotional book to read through the Beatitudes, then to read a chapter of this book. The chapters are about 20-30 pages longs, but the reading is quick and moving.
It's a reminder to each person to live our lives in a manner which seeks to experience the power and presence of Christ. It's a reminder we are all broken, some more than others, and we need to drink in from the well of the Beatitudes and the well which God offers us.
While it's an easy and quick read, it's also a profound read, which has the opportunity to change your heart!!
I received this book from Tyndale Press in exchange for an honest review.
