The Ninefold Path of Jesus: Hidden Wisdom of the Beatitudes 

By: Mark Scandrette 

IVP, 2021, 176 Pages  


In this book based on the Beatitudes, Mark Scandrette shows how these nine statements by Jesus found in Matthew 5 invite the reader into nine postures for life – literal postures that are demonstrated in the book through illustrations. Instead of living in fear, anxiety, and greed, we can choose radical love. Jesus offers nine sayings that move us beyond our first instincts and instead help us embrace the deeper reality of the kingdom of God. Whatever your story, whatever your struggle, wherever you find yourself, this way of Jesus is available to you.
