Product Description

The Sermon on the Mount is more than great ideas by a great teacher. It is a way of life. Randy Harris invites you not just to understand these great teachings but to live them in ways you never before imagined.

This new book is a training tool for people who want to live the way of Jesus. Centered on the entire contents of the Sermon on the Mount found in Matthew 5-7, it unpacks the sermon in hard-hitting, easy-to-understand, and practical ways.

G. K. Chesterton said Christianity has not been tried and found wanting; it has been found difficult and not tried. Many people today view the Sermon on the Mount this way. They simply believe the teaching is too hard and give up in exasperation and guilt or confusion. The single most important interpretive key for the sermon, says Randy Harris, is to believe that Jesus really intended for us to live these teachings.

Martin Luther said the Sermon on the Mount is so di!cult that we can only fall on the grace of God. The teachings are indeed difficult, and we can only fall on the grace of God, but this doesn't mean the teachings cannot become a necessary guide for living the way of Jesus. The Sermon on the Mount, says Harris, is livable and this book is a guide to the greatest teaching of all time that will change your life forever.

    Some say the Sermon on the Mount are the most important words Jesus spoke and we should shape our lives by them. Some think the words are too hard to even consider.

    Harris suggests, "Yes, they are too hard but by God's blessing and grace we must try to keep them." (11) He is convinced we must take these words as a rule of life.

    He shares his journey of discovery and invites the reader to come alongside. He goes through the Scripture in sections. He notes that, while there are commandments, it starts with blessings. Harris believes, "it's impossible to live out the Sermon on the Mount if we don't first understand that we are loved and blessed by God." (33) He touches on the various topics addressed: lust, foul language, lying, revenge, wanting to be seen, and judging. He adds personal experiences and stories to illustrate his teaching.

    He suggests memorizing the Sermon on the Mount. "...[I]t gets into you, " he writes, "in ways it doesn't when you just read it."

    He gives the example of a community he created on the college campus where he teaches. The students in the community commit to live out the Sermon on the Mount. Harris also gives ideas for creating such a community, suggesting the use of the DVD series of the book.

    This book can stand alone or be used along with the DVD as a field manual for groups and individuals. Each chapter has "Discussing What Jesus Says," and then "Doing What Jesus Says." There are some practical suggestions and strategies included in them.

    While an individual would be rewarded by reading this book, I think it would best be used in a discussion group setting.

    Harris encourages the reader to make a decision. "The sermon is not a body of material to be cognitively mastered. It's a life to be lived." (20) Jesus offers a different way. What kind of person will you be?

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher for the purpose of this review.
