Jesus' Plan for a New World: The Sermon on the Mountby Richard Rohr
Synopses & Reviews
When Jesus talked about the Kingdom of God, he was talking about an utterly different way of relating to human society as we know it. He was talking about a new world order, a term recently on the lips of politicians. What a false sense of the term they have used, contends popular preacher and author Richard Rohr. "I doubt that any major political leader would align a new world order in terms of cooperation, trust, service and redemptive suffering," writes Rohr. "For all the talk of a new world order, it's simply the old world order. The 'New World Order,' or the 'Reign of God,' is the heart of the New Testament."
When politicians today talk about a "new world order", they are actually referring to the "old world order"--the heart of the New Testament. Rohr and Feister explore the Gospel According to Matthew and delve into the Sermon on the Mount, considered the blueprint of the Christian lifestyle. They emerge with a clearer understanding of the Gospel writers, especially Matthew, who passed the sermon on to us.
