Item Description...
Overview
In Matthew's Gospel, the Sermon on the Mount inaugurates Jesus' public ministry, and the first word out of Jesus' mouth is "blessed." He repeats this word throughout his first sermon. Jesus calls his disciples by blessing them, and as he speaks, Jesus introduces himself to us but also introduces disciples to themselves, for the Beatitudes offer a character sketch of who disciples will become if they follow him. The Beatitudes, says Martha Stortz, function as a compass for the journey of Christian discipleship. The first group of Beatitudes target people in situations of suffering. The second group of Beatitudes target people who help those who suffer. Each chapter in Blessed to Follow is structured around a similar pattern: appeal to experience; biblical stories; Jesus: the one blessing and the one blessed; disciples: blessed to be a blessing; practice: the blessing made real. Includes questions for discussion and additional resources.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Profound Insight into the Topic of Discipleship  Nov 15, 2009
By using the Beatitudes as a guide, she shows what true discipleship is really all about. Good for personal faith growth or to use in an adult Bible study group on the subject. If you sometimes have trouble forgiving, she reminds us that Jesus did too. While on the cross, He didn't say, "I forgive you", He said, "Father forgive them".
We are called to discipleship not church membership. This little book would make a good gift for new members to start them on that journey.
