The Beatitudes, by Thomas Watson
The opening verses of the best-known of all Christ's sermons were handled by many Puritans, for the Beatitudes gave full scope to the combination of sound doctrine, practical wisdom, and heart-searching application which characterised their preaching. Thomas Watson, a master of terse, vigorous style and beauty of expression, sought to follow Christ's teaching more than most in his generation. He employs all manner of illustrations from common life, and with simplicity and charm speaks words that are not easily forgotten. First published in 1660, The Beatitudes has been one of Watson's rarest works - in this edition the layout has been entirely revised.

The Beatitudes: The Only Way To Happiness, by John MacArthur
You can know true happiness with God by knowing one word. It's a word you've heard and read a thousand times. Jesus used it - in fact, He built the Beatitudes around it. You can rest in one word that reveals a new measure of life that can be yours when you give your life completely to Him. The good news is that this word is in plain view, in the first few sentences of the greatest sermon Jesus ever preached.

John MacArthur does more than point you to this word. He shows you how it can transform your attitude towards happiness - perhaps even redefine it. It happens when you deepen your commitment to the One who knows exactly what you need.It all comes down to one word: Blessed. Not being blessed by looking to others, but being blessed by following our Lord!
