Publishers Description

Within the three chapters of Matthew known as the Sermon on the Mount are truths so rich and deep that no matter how often or how closely we examine their words, they continually bring new relevance to our lives. Do you want to know what kind of character you should have as a Christian? What should define your outer way of life and your inner habit of mind? Then study the Sermon. Ponder each sentence and test yourself by it.

There is no other section of Scripture that brings you face to face with your own humanity and the grace of salvation as the Sermon does. As Christ masterfully expounds on the Kingdom of Heaven, He presents believers with the perfect standard of the Christian life. He challenges the genuineness of our words and actions, allowing us to know exactly where we stand in relation to the Kingdom. Both humbling and encouraging, it is the greatest message ever preached.

Kent Hughes faithfully explores the words that penetrate our hearts, and brings forth the lessons from this matchless model of the Christian life. Part of the Preaching the Word series.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Sermon on the Mount: The Message of the Kingdom (Preaching the Word Series)?

Hmmm.... Deja Vu all over again...  Mar 25, 2006
This commentary reads well. It comes from a solid Reformed perspective. I had very few problems with the content (although Hughes' bracket-laden "translations" of the beatitudes appear to be almost intentionally absurd).

My problem with this commentary is that it is an almost exact copy of Boice's "The Sermon on the Mount," which was written some twenty-five years earlier. I was using both books (and several others) for some lesson preparation when teaching through the Sermon on the Mount and I can't believe how much Hughes seems to have lifted straight from Boice.

Some could be explained away. e.g., both men have great respect for Dr. Lloyd-Jones and his influence can be clearly seen in both. But Hughes just happens to decide to include most of the same obscure quotes, stories, etc? Entire chapters have the same structure, same illustrations (in the same order), much of the same language... As far as I could tell, he never gave any credit.

The material that actually *is* unique to Hughes is still quite good (although not as good as that which he has in common with Boice.) Anyway, unless there is some Q-theory at work here, I wonder how this volume came to be such a carbon copy.
