    Deep and engaging. The author interacted with contempoary commentaries (including Stanley Hauerwas, Davies and Allison) as well as patristic commentaries, extracting insightful tidbits from them and knitting them back into a book that is exciting to read. Instead of writing like an academic analyzing the text, the author explained how the Sermon's implication in our lives.
