In this outstanding exploration of the Beatitudes, Father Gerald Vann offers a moving and poetic description of our Lord's Sermon on the Mount. He shows that, far from being considered some kind of escape from the real world, the Beatitudes guide our worldly action toward serving God through the service of the souls around us.
As the author briefly summarizes in his introduction, "The Beatitudes tell us how to be happy; the way to be happy is to search for something else." That "something else" is the theme of this book.
