One of the most familiar passages in the New Testament, the Sermon on the Mount functions primarily as a catalyst for character formation, says Talbert. In this concise and clear introduction, Talbert's section-by-section commentary points out structural highlights; provides illuminating cross-references to Jewish and Greco-Roman literature; and offers essential guidance for your own ethical decision-making. 160 pages, softcover from Baker.

Customer Reviews for Reading the Sermon on the Mount
Review 1 for Reading the Sermon on the Mount
Date:November 22, 2007
For pastors, teachers and students, a very excellent commentary on the Sermon. It is technical at points, so the lay reader with a passing interest might find the book difficult, but it is still a great introductory text to the sermon.

Review 2 for Reading the Sermon on the Mount
Date:June 8, 2006
This book is way too technical. If you are into that you might like it. If you are a lay person it is not easy reading. I skipped over the Getting Ready section hoping the part on the actual verses would be better but it was not. Still a bit too technical.
