Item description for The Ladder of the Beatitudes by Jim Forest & James H. Forest...

Drawing on stories from the lives of the saints, scripture, and everyday life, Jim Forest opens up the mysteries of the beatitudes. These ancient blessings, with which Christ began his Sermon on the Mount, are all aspects of communion with God. As Forest shows, they are like rungs on a ladder, each one leading to the next. They appear at the doorway of the New Testament to provide an easily memorized summary of everything that follows, right down to the crucifixion ("Blessed are you who are persecuted") and the resurrection ("Rejoice and be glad").

Reviews - What do customers think about The Ladder of the Beatitudes?

excellent commentary  Oct 6, 2005
For anyone, like me, whose ever read the Sermon on the Mount and thought, "wow, this sounds really beautiful, but what does Jesus really mean by this?", Forest provides an amazing discussion of these beatitudes, translating them from the eloquence of their Biblical language to the meat and potatoes of everyday life. This could can be read straight through, or one beatitude at a time, it's simple to read, yet challenging to live. I first read it in high school and read it years later and found I got even more out of it.
A clear, crisp, relevant, and holy look at the Beatitudes  Aug 16, 1999
Jim Forest takes the reader on a thought-provoking journey by exploring the Beatidues as a whole and individually. Using examples from such diverse sources as the Desert Mothers and Fathers, Russian Orthodox saints, and contemorary peace and justice activists, he opens the Beatitudes in ways which allow readers to see their connection to our own times and lives. He does an especially good job delineating the meaning of words as they are used in the Beatitudes. A good resource for teachers, preachers, and anyone who wants a "new-old" way of looking at these basic teachings of Christ.
