Summary: Hero. Someone we admire, someone we want to be like. But does your idea of a hero include someone poor in spirit? Meek? Merciful?

In this fresh look at the Beatitudes, Iain M. Duguid shows how Jesus turns our concept of a hero upside down. The Beatitudes hold out to us a higher form of heroism—the character and attitudes found in the Hero of Heroes.

What Others Say About this Book:

“Iain Duguid again takes us by the hand and leads us to Jesus. The book is so powerfully pastoral and heart-reaching, the language so simple and powerful, that we may not be aware of the biblical scholarship that drives it.”

Edmund Clowney

“A thorough, practical, readable, broad-ranging, and above all, Christ-centered exposition of the Beatitudes, suited to make readers better disciples.”
