Customer Reviews for Baker Reading the Sermon on the Mount

Baker Reading the Sermon on the Mount

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.

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.

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.
