And whilst many will dismiss his approach as "liberal" it is still founded on the belief that he articulates in his epilogue that you cannot have Christian ethics, without having a personal Christian faith, and thus his over-arching thesis in this slim volume is that whilst the Beatitudes have much to say to the wider world, that they cannot be used as.

O the bliss of the poor!O the bliss of the sorrowful!O the bliss of the hungry and thirsty!O the bliss of the persecuted!These, as Dr Barclay says, are 'startling contradictions of the world's standards, sayings which no man could hear for the first time without a shock of amazement'. But the Beatitudes are something more than surprising paradoxes: to work out their implications is to discover 'the technique of being a Christian'. In this book they are examined against the background of the Bible, both Old and New Testaments, and of its languages. Dr Barclay's insight and learning find fresh and fuller meaning in the familiar words, and help us to know and to follow the 'way of the Beatitudes' and its practice.

Half inch of a slight previous water mark on the top of the book but the book is in good shape otherwise.
