Glenn Packiam redefines the word lucky in the context of Jesus’ beatitudes in Luke’s Gospel. Lucky uncovers how the poor, hungry, mourning and persecuted are blessed because the Kingdom of heaven—its fullness, comfort, and reward—is theirs in spite of their condition. This is Christ’s announcement: the Kingdom of God has come to unlikely people.  Like the people Jesus addressed, we are called lucky not because of our pain or brokenness but because in spite of it, we have been invited into the Kingdom. The trajectory of our lives have been altered. What’s more, we now have a part in the future that God is bringing. Like Abraham, we have been blessed to carry blessing, to live as luck-bearers to the unlikely and unlucky.

Review:

I have just finished reading the book you are holding in your hands. And I’m feeling lucky. I’m feeling lucky to have spent a few hours in the company of a pastor who cares enough about the gospel of Jesus and the kingdom of God to take them seriously on their own terms, to respect their intergrity.” Eugene H. Peterson, professor emeritus of Spiritual Theology at Regent College

"Dean Gallagher delivers this work with the authenticity of one who is rediscovering the true nature of the Kingdom of God. As Gallagher’s voice rises and falls with expectation and surprise, the listener will be entranced at the message being relayed. The Christian message is for those who weep for their condition, the author says, for those who are poor, and for those who hunger for an unattainable righteousness before a holy God. Gallagher offers a reactive reading—he reads the book with the emotions of a man who is understanding his need for Christ. The listener will be glued to the speakers, wanting to hear the message in its entirety."
