Author Bio

Michael H. Crosby, a Capuchin-Franciscan priest, is author of many books, including The Prayer that Jesus Taught Us, and “Do You Love Me?,” both Catholic Book Award Winners. He gives talks around the world on biblical spirituality and corporate responsibility. Fr. Crosby lives in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Publisher Description

The Beatitudes offer a summary of Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount---a succinct summary of his essential teaching. In probing the meaning of these eight verses, Michael Crosby cuts to the heart of Matthew’s Gospel: a spiritual message that is at once personal and deeply social. Crosby posits that Matthew’s Gospel was written for a more affluent church community. As such, his Gospel offers a particularly telling challenge to First-World Christians. To pray in the spirit of the Beatitudes is to answer a radical call to conversion: a journey into God’s Reign of peace, justice, mercy, and renewal.
