Allegories and paradoxes for contemporary living.

After a diligent search, I selected this book as the syllabus for the Adult Bible Study I moderate at the Morrow Memorial United Methodist Church in Maplewood, New Jersey. As a former college professor and scientific researcher, the "footnotes," collected at the end of the book, that direct the enthusiastic reader to further references, swayed my judgment. The penetrating questions and more sources in the book's Study Guide, matched with each of the ten Sessions, challenge even the most percipient reader to contemplate the verse of the Beatitudes according to Saint Matthew just covered.The book is very accessible and a compelling read. Reverend Lucado employs a narrative style and strong figurative language to create unforgettable images - metaphors, similes and puns punctuate his anecdotes that all can relate to. Without proselytizing, the minister imaginatively explicates the paradoxes and jarring hyperboles that comprise the Beatitudes. He invites the reader of The Applause of Heaven to a preview of the eternal blessing of unbounded joy promised to the believer in the Kingdom of God. Whether, as a drunk, one uses the lamppost for support or to find ones way, this book guides one on the path to meet with Jesus on the Mount. As recommended for the performing artist's arduous journey to Carnegie Hall, practice, practice and more practice of each "be attitude," the text assures us, will land the Christian in heaven to be greeted with God's thunderous applause.As one rebuilds ones heart using the Beatitudes as the blueprint for living, ones contemporary values are disabused by John Elliot's admonition that "he is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose." Read Reverend Lucado's deconstruction that to be meek, for instance, involves not only practising humility and eschewing vanity but also exercising patience, tolerance, contentedness and control over ones anger. "And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus." Shalom!

Welcome Back!

If you have been away from God for a long time this is welcome home. Max expesses the unbelievable truth of God's love and grace for you. Plan to read it through with tears in your eyes.

An amazing spiritual awakening

I picked this book up on sale, and Jesus came home with it. The book will change not only the way you look at God & Jesus, but how you look at you. There is an aura in this book that tells you when to put it down and think. You can feel His presence as Rev Lucado opens your eyes so you can open your soul to the word. This is one of the few books I have read that had the ability to make me laugh, cry, and pray all at the same time. It is definitely a MUST read for anyone unsure of their faith or their fate.The "Study" guides at the end of the book are like postage stamps on your heart and soul, guiding you ever closer to home and Him.
