Matthew 5-7, popularly known as the Sermon on the Mount, has been described as "the essence of Christianity," and has inspired many commentaries. However, New Testament professor Charles Quarles believes a fair number of those volumes either present Christ's sermon as containing an impossible spiritual ethic, or instead dilute its message so much that hardly any ethical challenge remains.
In this commentary, Quarles aims to fill the gap between these extremes by dealing with the important questions of whether believers can live by the Sermon on the Mount today, and, if so, how they do it. Looking at the Beatitudes, what it means to be salt and light, and the demand for superior righteousness, he writes to restore this crucial section of our Lord's teaching to its proper place in His church.
"A thorough, up-to-date, exegetically persuasive treatment that also reflects on all the major practical issues that ministers and church leaders face."?
