Item Description...
The apostle Paul wrote to his young protA(C)gA(C), Timothy: "If anyone competes as an athlete, he does not win the prize unless he competes according to the rules" (II Timothy 2:5 NASB). To be on God's team, one must play by the rules. But rule-keeping alone is not enough. There is a higher level. Rules, like laws, simply test the bare minimum of acceptability. (How far can I stretch the limits of legality and not get caught?) Dedicated players aim higher. They will strive for excellence, not simply by observing the rules, but by cultivating wholesome attitudes, good team spirit, and personal integrity. Many sports figures have been disqualified because they failed in these vital areas. On the playing field of life, true disciples of the Lord will elevate the rules of behavior to a level of righteousness that goes far beyond the slavish grind of a cold and sterile legalism. We may trace this pattern in the beatitudes of Matthew 5:3-12, the Spirit's fruit in Galatians 5:22-23, and the Christian graces of II Peter 1:1-8. Together they form a composite of godliness. That is what this book is all about

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A heart molded to God goes deeper than rules  Dec 2, 2008
Written by my brother's father-in-law, this book explicates the beatitudes to help us learn to live God's way, even though it is not our way. Well-done, despite what may be one of the most bizarrely misnamed book titles in history! The emphasis of the beatitudes, and this book, is not on rules, but on a heart molded to God, a behavior and way of life that goes far deeper than rules.
