Set for release in early 2017, The Beatitudes Project - an album: Beatitudes with The Fuel Music, a book: Words From the Hill (An Invitation to the Unexpected) from NavPress, and a documentary Film currently in the works - reveals a wide world of connected stories: real people from all faiths and walks of life who embody mercy, poverty, meekness, the hungry and thirsty, the peacemakers, the mourners, and the pure in heart - as seen, heard and experienced through a 21st Century lens.

Over a decade in the making, the project is the culmination of Stu Garrard's (Stu G, best known as songwriter/guitarist for the British band Delirious?,) excavation of these "blessings at the bottom of life." For the album, he explored in community with like-minded artists across a wide swath in the musical landscape. Celebrated artists Amy Grant, Michael W. Smith, Hillsong UNITED and Martin Smith join singer/songwriters Matt Maher, Audrey Assad, John Mark McMillan and Amanda Cook and innovators Propaganda, All Sons & Daughters, and Terrian Bass - artists who collectively have sold more than 62 million records, won 11 Grammy, 90 Dove Awards and amassed dozens of hit songs and millions of followers on social media - to unearth the words of Jesus in unforgettable, unexpected ways.

The purpose of the album, book and film? "To make way for the presence of peace," says Stu "To help people know that when things are broken and when things aren't working out, God is on our side and fully present with us. And so we can lift our heads and hear the invitation to carry on."

The Beatitudes Project is a reset button in a world plagued with violence and division. These upside-down Jesus announcements on a hillside by the Sea of Galilee where Jews, Greeks, Romans and people of all ethnicities were gathered have never been more relevant... or more important. As ecumenical in nature as in spirit, The Beatitudes Project is an invitation not only to the internal work of getting to know our own lack and ache, showing ourselves mercy, Cinding peace - but also to the external work of the same - to be present among the people whom Jesus pronounced as blessed.

It is an invitation for all people. "If God is on the side of the poor and those whose spirit is crushed, and the brokenhearted, the overpowered and bullied, and with those who ache for justice and for what's right - if that's where God is - then I think he's showing us how to live," adds Stu "This is the Jesus way. And that's where the invitation is - to be where God is."
