"...a clarion call to discipleship in depth."
J. I. Packer, Well known author & Board of Governors' Professor of Theology, Regent College, Vancouver, Canada
"Terry Johnson has done it again. Sounding a note from his previous book When Grace Comes Home, he shows us here a picture of what transforming grace looks like in the life of a believer, and he does so following Jesus' own description of his disciples in the Beatitudes. What a timely emphasis for a generation long on license and short on character."
Ligon Duncan, Chancellor and CEO, Reformed Theological Seminary
"A magnificent interpretation of the Beatitudes alongside that of Martyn Lloyd-Jones, Sinclair Ferguson, John Stott and James Montgomery Boice, to name only the more recent ones. My "Sermon on the Mount' note book is now crammed with Johnsonisms--pithy one-liners that get to the heart of what Jesus meant by adorning the righteousness of the kingdom of God. Those who know him as I do can 'hear' him preach these powerful and convicting sentences. This is where preaching and teaching needs to go. A marvelous book which I cannot recommend too highly."
Derek Thomas, Senior Minister of Preaching and Teaching, First Presbyterian Church, Columbia, South Carolina
"He explains and applies them with a freshness that must surely fire every reader with the passion for the true godliness that is so hard to find these days, yet which is so vital to genuine Christian living."
Mark Johnston, Minister, Bethel Presbyterian Church, Cardiff, Wales
The Beatitudes have found, in Terry Johnson, the expositor we have all been waiting for, and they become, in his hands, a statement of Christian ethics as profound as it is readable. He is as faithful in bruising as in uplifting, but, being a true pastor, even his bruises have a velvet and healing touch.
Alec Motyer, (1924–2016) Well known Bible expositor and commentary writer
"...a challenge to Christian counter-culture on both sides of the Atlantic."
