Picture of The Jesus Lifestyle

The Jesus Lifestyle

By Nicky Gumbel

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.

Chapters include:

  1. How to find the secret of happiness
  2. How to change the world around you
  3. How to understand the Old Testament
  4. How to handle anger
  5. How to understand sex in the twenty-first century
  6. How to view marriage and divorce
  7. How to live and act with integrity
  8. How to respond to difficult people
  9. How to handle conflict
  10. How to become a generous giver
  11. How to pray (and fast) like Jesus
  12. How to handle money
  13. How to stop worrying and start living
  14. How to deal with criticism
  15. How to respond to the most challenging words ever spoken
  16. How to make the big decision
  17. How to spot false prophets
  18. How to build a secure future
