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.
