    Product Description

    In this groundbreaking book, Pastor Jason Adam Miller re-examines the Beatitudes--eight paradoxes found in Jesus' Sermon on the Mount--and points to a whole new way to find hope in the midst of suffering.

    If the past few years have taught us anything, it's that the world is broken. The world we thought we knew vanished, and so many of us are now struggling to make sense of a world that's not what we thought it was. This book is about what happens when the fundamental picture we had relied on - our sense of how everything holds together - falls apart. For some, this moment comes when a global pandemic upends our security. For others, it's a partner leaving, or a terrible diagnosis, or the death of a loved one. Many of us have felt our worlds breaking when long-held beliefs about God or faith slipped through our hands. Whether the details are global or personal, the experience is the same: you discover that the framing reality you were living in has fractured. But here's the good news: The world has been breaking for as long as we can remember. We've been here before, which means we can turn to ancient, perennial wisdom to help us sort through these urgent problems. In When the World Breaks, Jason Adam Miller explores the possibilities for hope hidden in the paradoxes Jesus spoke when he taught the eight blessings - often called the Beatitudes - recorded in the beginning of Matthew chapter 5. These strange blessings name our experiences of suffering and are built on a particular kind of hope. This book is a meditation on those teachings as a transformative way forward when we suffer. Lyrically written, theologically rich, and supremely accessible, When the World Breaks reveals an unexpected way to look at these familiar verses, giving readers hope that God is with them in their suffering, and helping them become the kind of people who can put things back together.
