The Way of Jesus offers fresh insights into the relevance of the Beatitudes for our lives. It inspires us to live with the heart of Jesus, and challenges us to go beyond ourselves in being genuine disciples in an increasingly complex world.

In an age of ever increasing litigation we have become highly tuned to the need for justice. But is there room for mercy? In this book Fr Ken Barker argues passionately that without mercy justice will not be complete. He makes a compelling case for mercy through the use of stories about remarkable human beings who, faced with hurt and violence, have chosen to forgive rather than to seek vengeance. He reminds us that mercy is the highest quality in the heart of God, and hence the most liberating attitude for any human heart. […]

“With an engaging blend of scriptural reflection, theological investigation and very personal and human stories of struggle, confusion and journeys in faith, Father Ken Barker has provided his readers with a very real reason to live their lives in hope. Over and over again he shows us that the basis for this hope is Jesus Christ. As Father Barker insists, however, there is a world of difference between knowing about Christ and knowing Christ. It is when we encounter him as a living presence in our lives today, rather than simply an interesting and perhaps inspiring figure from the past, that our lives begin to be transformed by his saving grace. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to know Jesus better, love him more and serve him with generosity and courage.”
