Item description for Life Can Begin Again: Sermons on the Sermon on the Mount by Helmut Thielicke & John W. Doberstein...
Christians have always turned to the Sermon on the Mount for inspiration. In Life Can Begin Again, Helmut Thielicke, himself one of the great preachers of the 20th Century, comes to grips with what is often seen as a collection of lovely, but impossible ideals. Thielicke makes it clear that the Sermon on the Mount can never be understood if, even for a moment, we forget the person of the Preacher of the Sermon. For without the person and the work of Jesus Christ, the marvellous words of the Beatitudes and the injunctions that follow them are the most radical and devastating distillation of God's claims that can be conceived; they leave us in utter, hopeless dismay. Only 'in Christ' do these words of the law become the glorious gospel that promises a new life. Here is not only great preaching on some of the most urgent and sublime themes, but great tenderness and compassion too. As in so many of his works, Thielicke brings the profundities of Biblical religion alive for the modern era.

A life changing book. Excellent and easy to understand!! Jun 7, 1999
This book for me was like looking through the perfect lens. The clearity of the scriptures that i have read all my life were made life for me!! I found Thielicke's understanding of our Savior and His way for our world a comfort and a light to my path!! His books need to made available to layman more. I found his book on the back shelf of our chuch library. It had not been read since 1987. I am glad I found it!!
