Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The followers of Jesus are to different, writes John Stott, different from both the nominal church and the secular world, different from both the religious and the irreligious. The Sermon on the Mount is the most complete delineation anywhere in the New Testament of the Christian counter-culture. Here is a Christian value-system, ethical standard, religious devotion, attitude to money, ambition, lifestyle and network of relationships--all of which are totally at variance with those in the non-Christian world. And this Christian counter-culture is the life of the kingdom of God, a fully human life indeed but lived out under the divine rule. In this careful exposition of Jesus' Sermon on the Mount, John R. W. Stott accurately expounds the biblical text and relates it to life today. Above all, the author says, he wants to let Christ speak this sermon again, this time to the modern world.

Synopsis:

John R.W. Stott's observations on the radical blueprint for Christian living contained in the Sermon on the Mount is part of The Bible Speaks Today series edited by Mr. Stott and J.A. Motyer.
