Have you become discouraged and uninspired? Could you use some genuine, lasting joy in your life? In this eye-opening and deeply encouraging look at the Beatitudes, Max Lucado offers a life-changing encounter with the only true source of joy.

Max Lucado is an accomplished storyteller, a master of poetic prose, a thoughtful and insightful observer...and the author of a string of best-selling classics that include Just Like Jesus, The Great House of God, In the Grip of Grace, and A Gentle Thunder. Two of his titles-When God Whispers Your Name and In the Grip of Grace-were named Gold Medallion Book of the Year. Lucado lives in San Antonio, Texas, where he is the senior minister of the Oak Hills Church. He and his wife, Denalyn, are parents of three daughters.

It is what you always dreamed but never expected. It's having God as your dad, your biggest fan, and your best friend. It is having the King of Kings in your cheering section. It is hearing the applause of heaven. Max Lucado believes that the Beatitudes provide what we need to discover the the joy of God. Much more than a how-to book on happiness. "The Applause of Heaven" is an encounter with the Source of Joy.
-Publisher

It Comes from God and it is Within Your Reach... A joy that can't be quenched? A peace that can't be broken? A happiness that can't be threatened? There is such a joy. It is a sacred delight, a holy gladness. You can't open your Bible without reading about it. You can't live a truly satisfying life without it. And it's nearer than you think. Jesus describes that sacred delight in the astonishing mountain message we now call the Beatitudes. And Max Lucado, in this classic exploration of enduring joy, shows you how this familiar but revolutionary prescription for living can bless your life beyond your wildest imagining. Imagine God doing what gods would do only in your wildest dreams-wearing diapers, riding donkeys, washing feet, dozing in storms-dying for your mistakes. Imagine having God as your pinch-hitter, your lawyer, your dad, your biggest fan, and your best friend. Imagine having the King of kings in your cheering section and hearing the applause of heaven ring out ... just for you. But don't just imagine it. Open your heart to it-the heavenly joy of knowing the God who delights in you.

Teaching Ministry of Max Lucado
In 1991, Max Lucado was presented the idea of developing a radio broadcast that focused solely on Jesus Christ. As a result, the vision for UpWords Ministries was born. Since that time, 'UpWords, with Max Lucado' has changed from a 15 minute, daily feature to an inspirational one minute message. Today, UpWords is heard in over fourteen hundred radio markets around the world.

Along with the inspirational radio program, UpWords provides a comprehensive library of full-length CDs as well as many downloadable audio files of Max's weekly sermons delivered to his home church in San Antonio, Texas.

UpWords exists for the sole purpose of encouraging others to take one step closer to Jesus Christ. The staff of UpWords is prayerfully dedicated to this purpose and is constantly humbled to see God's hand at work.
