About The Book: The Beatitudes occupy an expansive realm in God’s Promised Land, a bountiful spiritual frontier suspended between heaven and earth. Plunge into God’s plentiful grace and goodness to explore this marvelous kingdom in his sequenced and purposeful order. The Beatitudes are a supremely challenging journey, requiring significant sacrifice of earthly nature and great emptying of self. The grand reward is total saturation in God’s spirit and living life as Jesus did upon this earth. Discover an ever deeper relationship with God and your fellowman—which will never end, neither here nor there!
About The Author: Marlin Harris served as a foreign missionary in Bangladesh, Costa Rica, and Paraguay, where God generated challenging opportunities for spiritual growth, provided powerful evidences of His great grace in action, and created a driving desire to acquire the heart, soul, and mind that God seeks for His servants to be purposeful instruments in His kingdom. His career spans twenty years in healthcare administration at various stateside and foreign institutions, and eleven as an educator in Spanish. He sees careers as merely vehicles that God uses to thrust His servants into unique situations and the lives of others to make a mighty difference for His kingdom on earth. Marlin resides at Pine Hearth, the family farm in central Alabama, with his wife, Jean, and daughter, DeLena. Marlin is also the proud father to Katelyn, who attends Mercer University in Macon, Georgia, and son, Marlin (IV) and daughter-in-law, Caroline, who also live in Macon and serve in the pastoral ministry and medical field. Marlin's fervent desire is that this book will serve as a God-given gauntlet to challenge and convict many of this generation to take up the quest for the Beatitudes and let its life-changing power reap great rewards for God's kingdom and countless lives for Christ.
My Thoughts About The Book: I have always been a huge fan of studying the Beatitudes and I was delighted to find this book for review. Harris did an amazing job capturing my attention and focusing me on the messages held in the Beatitudes. If you are interested in delving deeper into the Beatitudes then this is definitely the book for you. It was so easy to read and I loved the stories at the beginning of each chapter. For anyone wanting to study and understand more about the Beatitudes, this is the book to read. It is easy to read and holds the reader's attention. I would love to attend a class/book study with Harris on this topic. I believe he is truly hearing God's message. As a pastor this book is definitely a must for my office library and I forsee it coming in handy in the future when studying for my sermons. Thank you so much Marlin Harris for this wonderful nugget.
