Taking Jesus' teachings on the beatitudes as his central focus, Thomas Schmidt investigates the various ways that this particular text has been interpreted. From those who say that the discourse is purely political, to those who read it as Jesus giving a "zap" of good feelings to his listeners, Schmidt helps his audience sort through the cultural, contextual, and hermeneutical issues to claim that even if our postmodern world, Jesus' message cuts across all cultures, times, peoples, and places.
