Rejoice and Be Glad: (Y)Ours is The Kingdom of God
$18.00 – $30.00
When “Blest are They” was first written it caught our attention with its lyrical writing and singability, then it challenged and invited us to live the Beatitudes with renewed Christ-centered fervor. In this new book David Haas explores Matthew’s version of the Beatitudes through the lens of music he and others have written; through texts of Pope Francis, and David’s own exploration of the Beatitudes in everyday living. Rejoice and Be Glad! The Kingdom of God is (Y)ours! The Kingdom of God is both yours and ours – it belongs to all of us: the poor, sorrow-filled, the lowly, the hungry, the homeless, the pure of heart, the peacemakers, you and me, all of us, the Children of God.
Through the lens of his justly popular song-prayer “Blest Are They” (one of my all-time favorites), David Haas, one of the church’s greatest liturgical musicians, has provided us fresh thinking and challenging words to invite us to a passionate commitment to live the Beatitudes. But these are not gentle and soothing words. Instead, readers will discover a heart-stirring and spirit-filled framework to follow Christ in brand new ways. Read this book to live, pray, serve—and, of course, sing —as if for the very first time.
