The Beatitudes: “Meek”

Matt, Derek, and Alastair consider meekness.

Meekness is not often understood. And when it’s understood, it’s not often commended. And when it’s commended, it’s not often lived out. And yet we are told that the meek will inherit the earth. How should we understand this virtue Biblically? And how should we practice it in our own cultural moment?

The Book of the Month is Anglicanism: A Reformed Catholic Tradition by Gerald Bray. In this volume, Dr. Bray argues that some theological trajectories are more faithful than others to the nature and history of the Church of England. Readers looking to understand the diversity, nature, and future of Anglicanism will be helped by Bray’s historical examination. For the month of April 2021, Mere Fidelity listeners will get a 40% discount on their purchase of this volume with the code MEREFIDELITYAPR21 at checkout.
