Omtale Blessed are the Poor?
Listening intently to what the poor have to say is Laurie Green's way into a new study of Jesus' most famous Beatitude - Blessed are the Poor. Combining years of pavement level experience with informed biblical analysis he sets out for us how the perspective of the poor opens us up to new biblical and theological insights. These issue in a radical rethink about mission and what it means to be Church in a post-secular society.
The book introduces us to Britain's poorest housing estates and uses the radical edge of contextual theology to present a prophetic challenge to each one of us, and to a Church which is reluctant to respond seriously to the challenges of the Beatitudes.
