9780875521770: Hero of Heroes: Seeing Christ in the Beatitudes

Hero. Someone we admire, someone we want to be like. But does your idea of a hero include someone poor in spirit? Meek? Merciful? In this fresh look at the Beatitudes, Iain M. Duguid shows how Jesus turns our concept of a hero upside-down. The Beatitudes hold out to us a higher form of heroism—the character and attitudes found in the Hero of heroes.

About the Author:

Iain M. Duguid (PhD, University of Cambridge) is professor of Old Testament at Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia. He has written numerous works of biblical exposition, including Esther & Ruth and Daniel in the Reformed Expository Commentary series.

Review:

"Iain Duguid again takes us by the hand and leads us to Jesus. This book is so powerfully pastoral and heart-reaching, the language so simple and powerful, that we may not be aware of the biblical scholarship that drives it." --Edmund P. Clowney

"A thorough, practical, readable, broad-ranging, and above all, Christ-centered exposition of the Beatitudes, suited to make readers better disciples." --Daniel M. Doriani

"Iain Duguid plays the subtle tempter, somehow holding before us a true poverty and mourning and hunger so that we find ourselves envying what we naturally despise. He casts this spell with the only real magic: holding before us the image of the Blessed One, the Christ whose life was beatitude." --Kris Lundgaard
