Item description for Sermon on the Mount by John D. Mummert...
Overview Published By Ragged Edge Press Jesus and his teachings were central to the faith and mission of the early Christians, just as they are today. The Sermon on the Mount is one of the best known summaries of Jesus' teachings but is often interpreted in a superficial way. Modern treatments sometimes offer instant answers to believers' problems without any references to the deep roots and vital faith of the earliest Christians. During most of the first four centuries of the common era, Christians were persecuted for their beliefs and found comfort in writings which made them feel closer to Jesus and strengthened for their lives in the world. Early Christian writers commented on the Sermon on the Mount more than on any other single text. John D. Mummert has studied the Sermon on the Mount extensively and makes early Christian thought and practice comprehensible and useful for modern Christians. Think back before the Protestant Reformation, back to the Roman Empire, with its multiplicity of religions, and discover early Christianity for yourself.
