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.


"Iain Duguid again takes us by the hand and leads us to Jesus. This 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 P. Clowney

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

Daniel M. Doriani

"Iain Duguid plays the subtle tempter, somehow holding before us a true poverty and mourning and hunger so that we find ourselves envying what we naturally despise. He casts this spell with the only real magic: holding before us the image of the Blessed One, the Christ whose life was beatitude."

Kris Lundgaard
