Baker The Sermon on the Mount: Matthew 5-7

Jesus' Sermon on the Mount shows us the absolute necessity of the new birth and a regenerated heart. It points us to Jesus himself. And it indicates the way to blessing for Christians--how we can please our heavenly Father.

In this unique addition to his popular commentary series, James Montgomery Boice provides an in-depth look into the Sermon on the Mount found in Matthew 5-7. He explains the meaning of the text verse by verse and relates its concerns to today's world, the church, and the realities of the Christian life.

Boice's clear, practical writing makes this a helpful commentary for a wide range of readers--from serious Bible students to interested laypersons--to understand and apply the truths found in Jesus' teaching. It covers such topics as:

  • "The Secret of Happiness" (5:3-12)
  • "How to Rejoice in Persecutions" (5:12)
  • "When You Are Angry" (5:21-26)
  • "Divorce and Remarriage" (5:31-32)
  • "How to Pray" (6:5-8)
  • "The Names of God" (6:9)
  • "How to Defeat Temptation" (6:13)
  • "Fasting" (6:16-18)
  • "Spiritual Discernment" (7:6)

Afer reading my copy I bought 13 more to use with an adult Bible study I teach currently on the Beatitudes and excerpts from the Sermon on the Mount. I favored Boice over 12 other authors on this subject because of his clear and solid writing. My class is very pleased as well. I assume the book is a print version of a sermon series Dr Boice preached while at 10th Presby-Philly.

Dr. Boice's arrangement of his comments on the text into a 1, 2, 3 type format greatly enhances the teaching of the Sermon on the Mount in a group setting.
