Anne Howard interprets each beatitude through the story of a present-day student as well as Jesus' beatitudes. She brings the beatitudes into our experience now, beautifully, readably, so we can answer the question, "Where do you see God's presence in our world?" And so we can say, "yes, thanks" to God's invitation to participate. --Glen Harold Stassen, Lewis B. Smedes Professor of Christian Ethics, Fuller Theological Seminary
Can the beatitudes come alive for us today? The moving stories and compelling reflections of Claiming the Beatitudes say "Yes!" The questions at the end of each chapter offer true-to-life challenges. The entire book is an invitation to conversation and conversion. --Bishop Frederick Borsch, Professor of New Testament, Chair of Anglican Studies, Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia

radical in its vision and has so many young voices. The writing is
cogent and graceful. The Beatitudes will be new to you after reading it.
As I read of the next generation of Christians who find in their faith a living font for social action, I eagerly turned each page. (Who doesn't like reading about the future?)
Not only do these stories inspire faith and generate new ideas for practical religion, but they also marshal a strong living argument against the pundits who foster culture wars or those who think that Christianity's best days are behind.
I would recommend this book for church study groups or anyone interested in exploring real, lived faith and how it applies to our roles as citizens.
