Max Lucado believes that the Beatitudes provide what we need to discover the joy of God. This joy is not cheap, he cautions. What Jesus promises is not a gimmick to give you goose bumps nor a mental attitude that has to be pumped up at pep rallies. It is, instead, a radical reconstruction of the heart. The Applause of Heaven, a best selling classic, leads the searcher to an encounter with the source of joy. It shows that the peace of God is within your reach. And the applause of heaven is nearer than you think. Download and start listening now!

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah | 2/4/2014

    " This is not Max Lucado's best book I didn't think but still a good read. Based on the beatitudes with 2 chapters dedicated to each beatitude it is a thought provoking read filled with typical Max Lucado stories and pearls of wisdom "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 John | 2/3/2014

    " This book is an easy-to-digest study of the "be attitudes" in Matthew 5. Some of the parallels he made really hit home for me, and made these well known scripture speak to me in a whole new way. Brilliant writing. Transformation message! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Annie Bailey | 1/28/2014

    " Easily one of the best books I've ever read. Max Lucado pulls no puches telling about Beattitudes and what God does for us and what we should be doing to enter the kingdom of heaven. A very well written book and one I could easily read many times over. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Steve Curll | 9/30/2013

    " Okay, Lucado is a master wordsman, but somewhat shallow theologically. Engaging writing style,great pictures drawn, but little new theologically or doctrinally. For me, he is too much sugar and not enough medicine. "

    " Very inspiring, encouraging. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lillie | 7/22/2013

    " The style is simple and entertaining, but the message is powerful. This book ties the Beatitudes together in a way I hadn't thought of before. Rather than a series of individual items, they are interrelated. "
