Practical guidelines for living out Jesus’ teachings
Our culture is obsessed by lifestyle. Magazines and websites tell us what to wear, how to get fit and what to drive. But Jesus lived, and taught about, a radically different kind of lifestyle. How to deal with anger. How to handle money. What to do when faced with difficult people.
In this engaging and fascinating book, Nicky Gumbel takes a closer look at the Sermon on the Mount and presents, with his familiar mix of humour and wisdom, the way Jesus tells us to live our lives.
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.
Illustrations throughout the book are by Charlie Mackesy.
The book is also available as an ebook.
