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.

left wing political view of Jesus

What disappointed you about Sermon on the Mount?

That there was so little about the Sermon on the Mount and so much about how Liberal activism will save the world. Jesus is lost in the politics. Of the 8 hours, only two are about the Sermon on the Mount. The other 6 are about investment bankers, the Status quo and Jesus giving power to the people. I think Rohr is intelligent and has something to say, but i was not looking for a political rally.


What was most disappointing about Richard Rohr’s story?

I think he lets his political views, change how he views Jesus and his works.


You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Rohr has some good ideas about the people age and come to wisdom.


Any additional comments?

If you are looking for a bible study on the Sermon on the Mount, you should probably look elsewhere. If you are looking for a well thought out argument on how Jesus was a radical activist hippie, then this is your book.

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.
