Product Description

Product Description

'The followers of Jesus are to be 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 his careful exposition of the Sermon on the Mount, John 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

The message of the Sermon of the Mount. A challenge to us who are called to be salt and light in the contemporary world.

A good, thorough exposition of Christ's Sermon from Matthew's Gospel chapters 5 to 7. John Stott writes in a similar fashion to the way he preached, that is, clear, structured and easy to follow. Further, lots of the teaching here will be easily retained.
Stott expounds the familiar passages from the sermon, such as Christians being the `salt' and `light' of the world. He also tackles more difficult topics such as divorce and the Christian's relationships to members of their families and society at large. This is no dry, dull exegesis. There is lots of practical guidance for Christians in a non-Christian society.
The book comes complete with a study guide, which will be useful for Bible study groups or personal study. This book is part of the excellent Bible Speaks Today series, and I can highly recommend it.

4.0 out of 5 stars A lively exposition of the Sermon On The Mount 1 Jun 2001
Format:Paperback
The best thing for me about this book was I could read it as book not a heavy theological tone. In particular Stott grounds his theological observations in practical living in 2001. I thoroughly enjoyed it and passed it on to a stranger on a train before I could finish it, hence I am now buying my second copy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Christian counter-culture 20 Nov 2012

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought John Stott's "The Message of Sermon on the Mount" to replace a copy I bought many years ago which was falling apart. It's a book I've read many times and keep coming back to and I would strongly recommend it to anyone who wants to understand more clearly this very important passage in Matthew's Gospel.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sermon on the Mount by John Stott 9 May 2010
Format:Paperback
Product had 2 torn pages. Turns out a friend who also ordered the book also had 2 torn pages and he returned the book to yourselves.
I had an original copy of the book and photostated the missing pages, inserting them to the new book.
