What People are saying about this

Dale C. Allison
Charles H. Talbert’s expertise regarding the relevant ancient sources, whether Greco-Roman or Jewish, is matched by his thorough familiarity with recent critical study of the Sermon on the Mount. He is also theologically sensitive and hermeneutically sophisticated. The result is a lucid and sure guide to the minefield that is the Sermon on the Mount.
Errett M. Grable Professor of the New Testament and Early Christianity, Pittsburgh Theological Seminary
Robert J. Karris
Charles H. Talbert has made a wonderful contribution to the study of the New Testament and ethics. He writes with his characteristic decisiveness and clarity and brightly illumines the Sermon on the Mount from his deep grasp of the pertinent Greco-Roman and Jewish sources, the entire New Testament, and vintage scholarly literature.
The Franciscan Institute, St. Bonaventure University, and author of Prayer and the New Testament
Clifton C. Black
Reading the Sermon on the Mount is vintage Talbert: lucid, logical, with mastery of the commentary tradition and intimate knowledge of primary sources. The author’s emphasis on the Sermon’s role in the formation of character is a most welcome gift to specialists and general readers alike.
Otto A. Piper Professor of Biblical Theology, Princeton Theological Seminary, and book editor of Theology Today
