This is more a workbook and less a commentary or deep dive into the beatitudes. I did enjoy the questions and the introspection they provide, however I would’ve liked to see more exposition on the subject in between the questions.

I read this book with my small group. Pretty structured, but good discussion questions for a Beatitudes study. I wish it would have been more reading and less of a workbook.
Dwight Walker
A great coverage of the Beatitudes of Jesus are covered very good for a Bible study group to use.
