What does living as a Christian really look like? What changes do I need to make to the way I live my life? How does Jesus want me to live?
The Sermon on the Mount is Jesus' teaching on how to conduct our lives. While his original audience was a crowd of first-century Jews, his words are astutely relevant to 21st century living, particularly as modern Western cultural trends are increasingly at odds with Jesus' teaching. Laid out to follow the structure of Matthew 5-7, each chapter delves into the topics raised in these verses, including:
- Dealing with anger
- Handling conflict and criticism
- Managing money
- Sex, marriage and divorce
- The secret of true happiness
With his familiar mix of wisdom and humour, Nicky Gumbel explains Jesus' teaching and presents practical ways to apply it so Christians can follow Jesus in every aspect of their lives.
