From the Publisher
The Gospel for Real Life booklet series by the Association of Biblical Counselors (ABC) applies the timeless hope of Christ to the unique struggles of modern believers.
We do not like to be vulnerable. It makes us feel defenseless and opens the door to being hurt.
But, as difficult as it may be, vulnerability is necessary for us to be loved by others and is a healthy character trait when it leads us to take risks for God’s glory.
So how can we grow in the kind of vulnerability God wants us to have?
Brad Hambrick offers a study of vulnerability from an unexpected source: the Beatitudes. He takes us through an examination of each one, highlighting what it says about vulnerability and helping us come to terms with our struggles with it. He also brings encouragement, giving us ways to reflect on and begin implementing these teachings on vulnerability in our own lives.
- "Vulnerability in relationships is important yet dangerous. Brad Hambrick, using the familiar Beatitudes of Christ, helps us to learn how to do it wisely and intentionally." —Leslie Vernick
"The gospel isn't just an ethereal idea. It's not a philosophy and it's not static. It moves and shapes and transforms. I am grateful for ABC's work of letting the gospel bear its weight on these real life sorrows and pains." --Matt Chandler, Lead Pastor, The Village Church, Flower Mound, Texas

There were so many "wow" moments of realization where the truth hit deep. 10/10 would recommend if you want to take your friendship with someone to the next level. Fair warning: If you take this book seriously, it's uncomfortable to bare your hurts and sins and weaknesses to another person. However, being taught the value of vulnerability and how to put it into practice has deepened my relationship with God and my friend.
