It’s easy to receive an easy message—one we want to hear—one that allows us to settle back in our comfortable seats. But occasionally we hear a message that shakes us up—a message that challenges our comfortable thinking.
Author Troy Dobbs, Senior Pastor at Grace Church of Eden Prairie, Minnesota, confronts the wildly popular prosperity gospel—that God promises health and wealth—which has gained a foothold in the world today. He unpacks the profound message from Jesus that will make you think and rethink . . . and maybe even change your mind about what a blessed life really means.
The Blessed Life, that no one really wants, unpacks a timeless message that is as relevant today as when it was first spoken on a mountain, over 2000 years ago.
Hardcover with dust jacket, 112 pages
I have studied the Bible for several years. I never focused on the Beatitudes in the Bible. In the first chapter, Troy explains that people can miss Jesus message and focus on the worldly things. After reading his book and the Bible, Jesus stresses that our way to heaven can have bumps in the road. We need to overcome them and enjoy being with Jesus forever.
I read it and then gifted it to my son-in-law. I really liked it.
What a wonderful, blessed read. Pastor Troy has insights of the Beatitudes that are absolutely essential to one's understanding of Christ's message.
Wonderful book! Inspiring, helpful, motivating and very practical. Will read it over and over
The book is amazing! Pastor Troy illustrates the true meaning of the “Beatitudes” with 100% accuracy and clarity. Thank you for sharing your heart and the Word of God!!
