The aim of this course is to explore the Beatitudes, which encapsulate the teaching of Jesus. Jesus himself lived out the Beatitudes in his earthly life and called his followers to do the same.
This five-session group study course encourages Christians to examine their lifestyle in the light of Jesus' radical teaching and to live out these kingdom values - now.
This course takes a two-pronged approach to studying the Beatitudes, deepening our understanding of Jesus and challenging our deepest personal values; and helping us understand how they should impact on our approach to major global issues, such as environmental pollution and the deep-seated hostilities and injustices that afflict our world.
Each session of the course contains enough material for 90 minutes and includes guidelines for group study, with full background notes for leaders, interactive activities, including questions for group discussion and multimedia suggestions, a wide range of suggestions for Lenten prayer and meditation, and a challenge to practical action.
'A welcome return and repackaging of a book that was used successfully by many churches as a Lent Course a few years ago ... There is a very practical and detailed introduction designed to guide the course leader and, as someone who worked through it with a small group, ... I can recommend it with confidence.' -- Tim Hurren
'The content is easily understandable, clearly laid out, and would be a wise study for anyone looking to explore the heart of the Beautitudes ... Each session is mapped out time-wise, making this a good choice for potentially new groups with first-time leaders looking for a bit of structure and guidance.' -- Christianity Magazine
'This is an excellent resource, creative and thoughtful, a useful source of prayers, quotes and ideas. I expect it to work well with small groups looking for a challenge and hope to try it with my own homegroup during Lent.' -- April McIntyre
