9781570755491: Spirituality of the Beatitudes: Matthew's Vision for the Church in an Unjust World

The Beatitudes offer a summary of Jesus' Sermon on the Mount - a succinct summary of his essential teaching. In probing the meaning of these eight verses, Michael Crosby cuts to the heart of Matthew's Gospel: a spiritual message that is at once personal and deeply social. Crosby posits that Matthew's Gospel was written for a more affluent church community. As such, his Gospel offers a particularly telling challenge to First-World Christians. To pray in the spirit of the Beatitudes is to answer a radical call to conversion: a journey into God's Reign of peace, justice, mercy, and renewal.

About the Author:

Michael H. Crosby (1940-2017) was a Capuchin Franciscan whose preaching and writing on contemporary biblical discipleship took him around the world. He authored seventeen books, many of which have won awards from the Catholic Press Association, including Spirituality of the Beatitudes, Finding Francis, Following Christ, Repair My House, and The Paradox of Power.

Review:

"Michael Crosby has not only understood what Matthew was saying; he has understood the mind of Matthew and brought that to bear upon the world today... it will help many Christians read the Scriptures with new insight and challenge."
