Blessed Are You: Meditations on the Beatitudes

In the sixth century, a monk named Benedict devised the “Daily Office” as a way of encouraging the members of his community to focus on God during their regular routine. Since then, many have discovered the value of such ‘interruptions’ for enjoying God’s beautiful, life-giving presence. This book offers a series of Daily Offices based on the Beatitudes of Jesus, those timeless words that inspire, comfort, and challenge all who hear them. Over the course of eight weeks, the Scripture readings, devotionals, reflective questions, and prayers in Blessed Are You will help readers slow down and draw near to God—so that souls might experience what they most deeply want and need. Featuring contributions from members and friends of West Shore Evangelical Free Church; Mechanicsburg, PA.
