Blessing is one of the most used but least understood of Christian terms. We want to be blessed, and to be a blessing, but do not think a great deal about what that implies. This engaging introduction unpacks the rich, many-layered concept of blessing from a variety of angles, looking at the place of blessing in the scriptures, in theology and in daily life.
â€¢ What it means to â€˜Bless the Lordâ€
â€¢ Blessing in terms of thanksgiving, praise, and recognition of who God is
â€¢ Jesus as the Son of the Blessed One
â€¢ Overcoming the opposite of blessing
â€¢ Who and what is blessed
â€¢ How and when we bless today
With sections on vocation and the â€˜prosperity gospelâ€ movement, this guide will not only help the reader to think differently and more deeply about blessing, but also about the places, people and situations that we bless.
