HAPPY ARE THEY: Living the Beatitudes
In this book, we read the stories of eleven (11) people who take the gospel seriously and, forgetting themselves and unafraid of sacrifice, find that the more they give themselves away, the more they are filled with happiness. This book is a perfect antidote for those who live a self-centered life and the perfect companion for everybody who, even when nobody is looking, try to do the right thing in life. Happiness and holiness are seldom associated in our society. Yet with amazing grace, Jim Langford narrates the lives of people who are happy exactly because they have been touched by the holiness that only God can give. In a world shadowed by sin and self-seeking, Jim Langford tells the story of ordinary folk whose devotion to humankind has lightened the darkness that besets us all. 176 pp.
