Publisher's Summary

Richard Rohr leads us through the social, political and environmental setting out of which Matthew brought Christ’s radical message of a new world order. He explains Matthew’s challenge to let go of the conventional wisdom that comes with contemporary American culture. Each of seven talks brings us closer to the heart of the Sermon.
Rohr contrasts conventional wisdom with the wisdom of Christ and draws the listener into the Kingdom of God, the end of the world and the experience of enlightenment. He explains that each generation lives in end times, that the Kingdom is for those willing to let go of all cultural idolatry (past and present) and that those who live in reality travel a path of life which unfolds into freedom. This series is a powerful call to follow Jesus Christ in the commandments of the New Testament.

Finally a way to understand the ancient scripts!!!

What did you love best about Sermon on the Mount?

Father Rohr gives us a valuable insight to the context/times/culture that Jesus was teaching and clears up what we have either lost in translation or simply do not understand because of the language and major time barrier/gap.

What other book might you compare Sermon on the Mount to and why?

The Art of Letting Go

What does the narrator bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

His inflections. You can hear him smile and he drives home the points wonderfully.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It brought me closer to an understanding of God, Jesus, as I seek enlightenment.

Excellent!

Richard does an excellent job of laying the foundation for Matthew's presentation of Jesus' sermon on the mount. By the time he's finished with the foundation the actual text begins to fall into place much more easily and much more understandably.

Much food for thought

This is a brilliant series of explanations, and results in being a huge source of hope. The sermon is explained, and makes sense in a deeper way, because of the lead up from Richard. He simplifies the messag whilst keeping the complexity of the context. The Bible makes so much more sense, and remains so very relevant to today.

WHAT AN EXPERIENCE

To complete this review I was forced to rate performance and story with stars. Not needed in this case. in this case. I just finished listening to Fr. Richard talking to me about the Sermon on the Mount.
Now I just sit here , speechless. I had a wonderful experience that can only be expressed by one word: " WOW !" Thank you Fr. Richard.
