Description

It comes from God and it is within your reach ... The applause of heaven.

A joy that can't be quenched? A peace that can't be broken? A happiness that can't be threatened?

There is such a joy. It is a sacred delight, a holy gladness. You can't open your Bible without reading about it. You can't live a truly satisfying life without it. And it's nearer than you think.

Jesus describes that sacred delight in the astonishing mountain message we now call the Beatitudes. And Max Lucado, in this classic exploration of enduring joy, shows you how this familiar but revolutionary prescription for living can bless your life beyond your wildest imagining.

Imagine God doing what gods would do only in your wildest dreams -- wearing diapers, riding donkeys, washing feet, dozing in storms -- dying for you mistakes. Imagine having God as your pinch-hitter, you lawyer, your dad, you biggest fan, and you best friend. Imagine having the King of kings in your cheering section and hearing the applause of heaven ring out ... just for you.

But don't just imagine it. Open your heart to it -- the heavenly joy of knowing the God who delights in you.

Do you long for a joy that can't be quenched? A calm that can't be broken? A happiness that can't be threatened? There is such a joy, and it is within your reach.

You can't open your Bible without reading about it. You can't live a truly satisfying life without it. It is a sacred delight, a holy gladness. And it's nearer than you think. Jesus describes this sacred delight in the astonishing mountain message we now call the Beatitudes.

Pastor and New York Times bestselling author Max Lucado explores Jesus' prescription for enduring joy and the ways this familiar but revolutionary pattern of living can bless your life beyond your wildest imagining.

In The Applause of Heaven you'll discover that God promises a special blessing to:

  • the poor in spirit
  • those who mourn
  • the meek
  • those who hunger and thirst
  • the merciful

  • the peacemakers
  • the persecuted
  • As you seek to live out the message of the Sermon on the Mount, you'll find your biggest fan walking alongside you. Imagine your best friend—the King of kings—in your cheering section and the applause of heaven ringing out . . . just for you.

    But don't just imagine it. Open your heart to it. Receive the heavenly joy of knowing the God who delights in you.
