Mark Scandrette talks with Nathan Foster about seeing the world the way Jesus did, the hidden wisdom in the Beatitudes, and applying the Sermon on the Mount to everyday life.
[1:10] What was Jesus doing with these weird sayings, these Beatitudes?
[2:15] How do you think it was received by the hearers?
[4:38] In your work, you have 2 lines: “this is a new way to be human,” and “a journey back to reality.” Where do you take the Beatitudes for us today?
[6:15] Could you address this idea of our first instincts and new postures?
[11:40] Is there one that has been the most challenging or difficult?
[20:35] Is there a movement toward a practical practice as we move into this reality?
[22:50] This book was born out of practical labs. Can you tell us a little about that?
[25:50] What would you like to see happen for those who read the book?
[26:35] In your travels around the world, what have you picked up from Christians around the world that would be helpful for us in the West?
