Item description for Rebuilding Relationships: A Sermon on the Mount Floor Plan by Chris Altrock...

Overview
Three fundamental relationships from which you derive your greatest joys and sharpest pains stand at the center of your life; your connection with others, your bond with God, and your association with possessions. Most long for fulfilling families, friendships, and daily relationships. Many of us are searching for a deep and authentic spirituality. The majority of us want balance and simplicity when it comes to the things we own - we don't want them to own us!

Publishers Description
Three fundamental relationships from which you derive your greatest joys and sharpest pains stand at the center of your life: your connection with others, your bond with God, and your association with possessions. Most long for fulfilling families, friendships, and daily relationships. Many of us are searching for a deep and authentic spirituality. The majority of us want balance and simplicity when it comes to the things we own-we don't want them to own us In his greatest speech-the Sermon on the Mount-Jesus addresses these three basic longings. Using the image of a house, he reveals a floor plan for life that enables all three relationships to reach their fullest potential. Jesus demonstrates how to build a life characterized by gratifying relationships, rewarding piety, and freedom from consumerism. He does this by punching a hole in the roof of our lives and urging us to look through it to the God above. Throughout the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus removes the dark clouds of divine mystery and reveals surprising views of God. These, in turn, transform how we treat others, the way in which we practice our spirituality, and the view we take on wealth and possessions. Let the Master Carpenter help you build a better life. Strengthen your relationships. Deepen your spiritual experiences. And find true financial freedom.

Reviews - What do customers think about Rebuilding Relationships: A Sermon on the Mount Floor Plan?

Expository Method  Sep 13, 2009
Using the expository method with a biblical passage in a sermon or book means at least two things: First, this approach allows the issues unfolded in the Bible itself to dictate the topic of the book or sermon. Second, this technique insists that Scripture itself provides the message for the contemporary presentation.

A good example of taking an expository approach to an extended biblical passage is Chris Altrock's Rebuilding Relationships--A Sermon on the Mount Floor Plan (St. Louis: Chalice, 2008). Altrock's thirteen chapters follow the themes and messages of Jesus' three chapter Sermon on the Mount found in Matthew 5-7. Altrock's approach is not to offer a commentary on the text, others do that. Nor does he cite the text and then go on to make his own points, many contemporary preachers do that. What he does is this: he stubbornly works his way through the entire sermon allowing the words of Jesus to raise the topic of his next chapter and insisting that the message of each chapter is dictated by Jesus' own message.

Just What I Needed  Sep 3, 2009
This book wasn't great; it was incredible! It's easy to read, full of practical applications, and is definitely worth the purchase. I would recommend this book to anyone, as it is a helpful tool in understanding the daily application of the Sermon on the Mount.
 
Great read and helpful tool  Sep 2, 2009
Really a great look into this significant piece of Jesus' teaching. The book is readable, practical, and thoughtful. I'd recommend it to anyone seeking to draw closer to Christ, looking for helpful sermon or bible class material, or just looking to understand Scripture better. Well written!
 
Not What I Was Hoping For  Jul 22, 2009
This book isn't terrible, but that is about all I can say for it. It doesn't deliver what it bills and it is boring. It is hard to read because it is repetitive. It is short on practical applications and theory, which leaves too many not very helpful stories.
