About-

No portion of Scripture has been more influential in renewing church and society than Jesus' Sermon on the Mount. This book invites groups and individuals into a transformative engagement with these remarkable teachings of Jesus. Accessible consideration of each major text is complemented by suggestions for multisensory methods by which to enrich the study--quotes, questions, application exercises, songs, and prayers. Faith communities are challenged not only to study the Sermon on the Mount but to begin practicing these radical teachings of Jesus. In addition to use in congregations, this volume is recommended for college and seminary classes that seek holistic methods for engaging biblical texts.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"The Sermon on the Mount's transformative power is realized only when it is performed among and by God's people. Under Jim Bailey's clear, engaging direction, we not only hear the Sermon in fresh ways, but are invited to sing it, pray it, and grapple with it in our congregations and our daily lives, where it forms us into a 'contrast community'--salt and light for a senseless and dark world."

--Stanley P. Saunders
