Book Description

The Sermon on the Mount is probably the best known section of the entire Bible. Yet it is also one of the least understood parts of the teaching of Jesus Christ. ‘It is not a sermon about an ideal life in an ideal world,’ writes Sinclair Ferguson, ‘but about the kingdom life in a fallen world.’ It answers some of the most pressing questions every Christian encounters: What is a Christian? Does the law of God still have a place in the Christian life? How can I learn to pray? How can I learn self-discipline? Why am I a prisoner of anxiety?

Sinclair Ferguson’s The Sermon on the Mount deals with these issues in a crisp, concise, and readable way. It provides an ideal instruction to Jesus’ great manifesto for life in his kingdom.
