No cheap and easy interpretation of the Beatitudes. I would expect nothing less from John MacArthur.
In this world's overwhelming trend towards a social gospel, to many misinterpretations abound in the so called christian community.
You can not, never, proclaim the gospel of Christ without a solid,deep view of your sin. Without repentance there is no gospel to proclaim. John MacArthur gets it like so few in this world do. Here, Here! Hurrah! Hallelujah!
I am so thankful to have read "The Beatitudes- The Only Way to Happiness". I can honestly say that this book has greatly impacted and changed my relationship with our Lord for the better. Never before did I fully understand Christ's Sermon as John MacArthur explains it. It was a difficult look into my personal realtionship with Christ that so deeply spoke and continues to speak to my heart each day. I highly recommend it to anyone who seeks better understanding of how God wants us to live; their role as a true Christian -Jesus Style.
