Most of the time, life doesn’t work out like we expect it will. We spend time and energy trying to climb some sort of spiritual ladder, oblivious to the fact that it is God who is moving toward us. We want answers to our problems, yet what is offered is presence.
Words from the Hill turns each beatitude on its head to see the unexpected beneath the understood—diving into the story of a woman on death row to speak about mercy, personal stories from the Israeli-Palestinian conflict to talk about peace, and much more. Author Stu Garrard has walked with these people in their stories, and he vulnerably offers his own as he unpacks the Good News of the Beatitudes.

Words from the Hill by Stu Garrard clearly states we should see His power to bring us closer to Him. He is there even when it seems like He is not, when it feels like our prayers are not being answered. He is always there at the darkest times until the light shines so bright we are blinded. Such an inspiration to read! I received a copy for this review from Tyndale House Publishers and all opinions are my own.
Cricket5 Stars Out Of 5Great Fresh View of the BeatitudesMay 1, 2017CricketQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5In Words from the Hill: An Invitation to the Unexpected, author, Stu Garrad, invites the reader to move in just a little closer as if we were in the crowd on the mount near the Sea of Galilee as Jesus gives His famous teaching that includes the Beatitudes. He sets the stage reminding us to go back in time when there would have been no screens to read from, no amplifiers to make sure even the back row could hear well, no devices to make notes on, and no band to warm everyone up for what was to be taught. Then he tells us to really listen and asks, What does it mean to listen?
One-by-one through eight chapters Stu revisits each of the Beatitudes and asks us to listen and look at them with fresh eyes and apply them to our own hearts today to delve into the rich meaning of each one.
Stu Garrad, best known as the guitarist for the British band Delirious?, lays down his guitar and picks up his pen to once again move in closer to the Words from the Hill and to recognize afresh that God is on our side.

While writing isn't foreign to him, since he has written many Christian songs, Word From The Hill is new territory for him.
I was excited to read this book because anything in the Beatitudes is always interesting to me. Stu did not disappoint. He walked the Beatitudes and shared not only his personal stories but stories of others that have effected his life. I found this book full of personal examples of how God has worked in peoples' lives.
That being said, I would not call this a Bible study or even a devotional. This is many experiences and journeys with Jesus. That is a good thing. They are testimonies. Examples of how God works in the simple ways and in the big ways.
Overall this book is just an excellent reminder of who we need to be looking for. Jesus.
