Begin The Quest

By Marlin J. Harris

The author hopes to show how the beatitudes are important and how we need to understand them. In this book you get a description of each one. Marlin says that the “Beatitudes are character building callings from the Master Himself to take up a sacred quest to become the person God created you to be.” The author was a missionary to Paraguay and shares some stories from that experience. He writes about the important of the beatitudes and why Jesus used them to prepare hearts for what He had to say on the Sermon on the Mount. The book is divided into ten chapters, each chapter dealing with a single beatitude, with an added story of a person from the Bible, such as Moses, Abraham, Paul and others. The author uses scripture verses, quotes from different writers and quotes from some Christian songs. At the end of each chapter he offers “Thoughts for meditation” section that will help you in your understanding of the beatitudes that was covered in that chapter.

The book can give you a new understanding of the beatitudes and be used fin discussion groups. In my opinion, he could have used less quotes from songs, other then that it is well written and is a informative book.

I received this e book free from the publisher through the BookLook Bloggers book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255
