For many years Angela Thomas thought of the Beatitudes as a list of "Gotta Be's," as in: Gotta be meek. Gotta be merciful. And when she compared her life to the standard they set, she always felt that she came up short. But through God's great mercy, she has come to see this passage instead as a roster of "When You Are's." When you are meek, there is a spiritual inheritance. When you are merciful, you will be shown mercy.
This shift in thinking has led Thomas to understand that God does not require perfection, but rather our gracious obedience. In His eyes, our lives-complete with mistakes, blemishes, and imperfections-are A Beautiful Offering.
Karen Northcutt5 Stars Out Of 5December 11, 2009Karen NorthcuttThis a wonderful book especially if you have been through deep hurt and pain in your life for whatever reason. It inspires you to keep the faith, to stay focused on God through it all and is so encouraging that even in our hurt we can still be a beautiful offering to God. She is an excellent writer and God definetely gave her the words. Highly recommend it. Wish I could buy a case to give out to all my hurting friends.
Anne P5 Stars Out Of 5April 15, 2009Anne PWhat a wonderful journey through the Beatitudes! Angela Thomas is so real, open, funny and direct. Christ is looking for all who are broken and willing to give their life to Him. Angela portrays this beautifully!
Susan Rasinski4 Stars Out Of 5September 17, 2007Susan RasinskiAngela Thomas has become one of my favorite authors. Her common sense, down to earth "conversation" with her listeners is so refreshing. A Beautiful Offering is such a beautiful heart-cry to God. This book (and the video) has helped me grow so much in my relationship with Christ. It has helped me to realize how personal and intimate my God is. Angela Thomas is so approachable. This is someone I could have coffee with, and spend the afternoon laughing, crying and praying with.
