Overview

The Applause of Heaven: Discover the Secret to a Truly Satisfying Life by Max Lucado

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.

This book shows us what the 'Sermon on the Mount' was really saying about our lives and how the beatitudes serve to clarify the steps we need to take to turn our lives around...brilliant!

We're using this book as the context for Bible study. Lucado's writing is written in everyday terms, with memorable stories and examples that allow the reader (me) to understand the Bible as it relates to me and my world today.

I thought I had understood the beatitudes until I read Lucado's insights. They helped me better comprehend heaven's litmus test for a genuine spiritual walk; and how to avoid so many of the counterfeits offering their own brand of 'peace'.

Max Lucado has a way of bringing Biblical principles to life. A good book if you want to reflect on your relationships with God. Plan to use this with my Sunday school class because I didn't realize that each Beatitude fell in line behind the one before it. Good food for thought.
