Overview

“I am deeply convinced that the church of Christ needs to study the Sermon on the Mount again and again,” writes D. A. Carson. In his popular explanation of Jesus’ teaching in Matthew 5–10, this renowned author clearly presents the inescapable demands on the believer to live a pure and dedicated life.

As Carson covers the Sermon on the Mount and the events that follow, he blends good writing, thoughtful exposition, and consistent respect for the authority of Jesus’ words. Bible teachers in church and parachurch groups, thoughtful Christians who want more than a surface-level devotional, and pastors who preach on Matthew 5–10 will find rich insights and practical applications in this book.

With Logos Bible Software, Scripture passages appear on mouse-over, and all cross-references link to the other resources in your digital library, making this collection powerful and easy to access—a cornerstone reference for scholarly work or personal Bible study. Perform comprehensive searches by topic or Scripture reference—finding, for instance, every mention of “Sermon on the Mount” or “Matthew 5”
