Spiritual Guidance through the Sermon on the Mount
Imprint: Wipf and Stock
"Dr. Stephen Robbins has written a fascinating, insight-filled, and potentially life changing book about the Sermon on the Mount. Written in a crisp style with many notable turns of phrase, Robbins seeks to unlock the depths of Jesus' teaching about how we are meant to live as His disciples.
The heart of the book, to my mind, is found in the Sermon Application section in each chapter, which provides a fit response to the material in the chapter itself. Working with the questions and the exposition of various spiritual disciplines and practices in this section is a powerful way for both laypeople and clergy to process the words of Jesus in the context of their own lives.
Robbins takes seriously the fact that to be a disciple of Jesus is to walk diligently along the road to transformation. He has provided a guide for us to do just that."
