Item description for The Beautiful Attitudes: The Wisdom of the Beatitudes by Stephen M. Crotts...
Overview "No one who reads this book will feel the same way about life when getting up the next morning." In this pocket-sized book, Crotts quotes Oliver Wendell Holmes as saying, "Most people are willing to take the Sermon on the Mount as a flag to sail under, but few will use it as a rudder by which to steer." Crotts provides relevant background and contextual information, with contemporary illustrations. The beatitudes are those timeless gems of wisdom that have been often abused or misunderstood. Stephen Crotts brilliantly exposes the sanity of this classic collection of sayings and applies them to a world that at times appears to be insane. "Perhaps now we're ready to listen!" From these pages the reader will find a deep and abiding peacefulness that can become available even to the worst skeptic ... or to those who have endured tragedy or hardship.
