The Sermon on the Mount in a clear and relevant manner.
on 28 April 2008
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.
