About "Taking Jesus At His Word"
Blessed are the poor in spirit. Blessed are the meek. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Judge not, that you be not judged. You cannot serve God and mammon. Though these sayings from Jesus' Sermon on the Mount are very familiar -- even to those who have never stepped inside a church or read the Bible -- many people, including Christians, still do not understand Jesus' real message and its implications for everyday life. Now in mid-life, Addison Hodges Hart returns -- bringing with him his own failures, regrets, joys, and sadnesses -- to sit at the feet of Jesus and listen to his words. Join him as he encounters the Sermon on the Mount afresh, passage by passage, asking "How should I live the rest of my life?" This honest, accessible, and open-minded book -- drawing on sound scholarship yet free of theological jargon -- seeks to encourage and challenge a broad audience to consider anew what it means to follow Jesus.
