Book Review: Momentum: Pursuing God’s Blessings Through the Beatitudes


From the Back Cover:

Why is change so hard?

Don’t you wish you could just snap your fingers and be spiritually mature? That the gulf between where you are and where you want to be wasn’t so wide? That you could experience the blessing of godliness more?

Change is hard, it’s true, but we often make it harder than it has to be. Momentum offers a better way forward, revealing how the Beatitudes—“blessed are the poor in spirit . . . blessed are the meek . . . ”—hold the secret to change that gets easier with time. Learn:

¿   What each beatitude actually means
¿   How they work together to give momentum
¿   Practical ways to mature in each one

The Beatitudes aren’t just poetic sayings; they’re a way of life. If you want
to make strides in overcoming sin, growing in godliness, and getting closer to God, this book is for you. And if you’ve lost hope that you can change, this book is especially for you. You can make progress, starting today.


My Review:

Momentum: Pursuing God’s Blessings Through the Beatitudes by Colin S. Smith is the most in-depth book that I have read about the Beatitudes in quite a long time. The author draws the reader into eight chapters deeply defining the Beatitudes such as: I bring Nothing- The Enigma of Empty-Handedness, I Take Ownership- The Power of Spiritual Mourning and I long to be Righteous- The Energy of Renewed Affections. The author uses both scripture, personal experience and other writers to teach each topic. I greatly encourage any one wanting to learn more about Jesus’ teachings and God’s character to buy this book and learn from it as much as I did.
