5.0 out of 5 stars The Sermon on the Mount in a clear and relevant manner., 28 April 2008
This review is from: The Message of Sermon on the Mount: Christian Counter-culture: With Study Guide (The Bible Speaks Today) (Paperback)
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.

This review is from: The Message of Sermon on the Mount: Christian Counter-culture: With Study Guide (The Bible Speaks Today) (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
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Message of Sermon on the Mount: Christian Counter-culture: With Study Guide (The Bible Speaks Today) (Paperback)
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.

This review is from: The Message of Sermon on the Mount: Christian Counter-culture: With Study Guide (The Bible Speaks Today) (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.
