Overview

One of the most influential teachings in Christian history is Matthew 5-7, Jesus's Sermon on the Mount. Many pastors have delved into this passage, but none has offered such a comprehensive, up-to-date, and accessible exposition. Until now.

In fact, he gives the most thorough and comprehensive interpretation of this passage to date. His compelling, devotional-style writing brings the words of Jesus to life, and he shows readers how to put these teachings to work in their own lives. An unforgettable book for the lay reader and pastor alike.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Prolific author Kendall (former senior minister, Westminster Chapel, London; Total Forgiveness) is well known to both charismatics and evangelicals. Combining a literalist viewpoint of scripture with an emphasis on the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, Kendall weaves together an interpretation of Jesus's Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5–7) that fuses the evangelical and charismatic perspectives. Kendall's evangelical views accentuate the importance of scripture as interpreted by the doctrinal traditions of Luther and Calvin, and yet his charismatic approach emphasizes the inspirational power of the Holy Spirit as displayed through signs and wonders as described in the book of Acts. Kendall examines the sermon through the lens of Paul's epistles (Galatians and Romans) and concludes that the sermon is in fact Jesus's own doctrine of the Holy Spirit. VERDICT This extensive and comprehensive look at the sermon is neither a quick nor an easy read, but for charismatic and evangelical pastors, seminarians, and lay readers who appreciate Kendall's sermons, the rewards are well worth the effort.—Brian Greene, Northeastern Univ. Libs., Boston

Martyn Lloyd-Jones lite (very lite!). Why settle for Benny Hinnish God-talk like the over-used "anointing" and "slain in the spirit" (gag) when you can explore the depths of Lloyd-Jones? Quite a shame that an excellent intellect has to be ensnared by TV evangelism gimmickry.....
