Reviews - What do customers think about Sermon on the Mount, The: Matthew 5-7 (Expositional Commentary)?
One of a number of good books on the subject Mar 15, 2008
We have several books on the subject of the Sermon on the Mount, and we wish to get several opinions on the subject. This is one of them.
Remarkable for "Regular" People Jun 26, 2007
Most expositional commentaries are written with a specialized audience in mind -- like pastors, divinity students, and other "professional" religious people. Boice's commentary on Sermon on the Mount, though, is delightfully accessible. Anyone can enjoy it -- even "regular" people (i.e., without religious credentials). As a lay person, I found the book approachable, understandable, and delightfully engaging. It was also a great read -- easy to follow, and even entertaining. (Boice's many references to secular and personal experience were illuminating, refreshing, and effective.) I learned a lot about this important section of the Bible, and enjoyed every insight. Highly recommended -- for a very broad audience.
