What a book! Pick up your Bible and read Matthew chapters 5 through 7, then pick up this book and let God change your life! After reading this book if your life is not changed, you are not listening to that Still Small Voice; you are not hearing the Quiet Knocking on your life's door! Lloyd-Jones fully explains in simple yet complete detail the Beattitudes in particular, and the full body of Jesus' sermon in general (as he does in all his books compiled so far). Read this book, and your spirit will become poor; you will mourn sin, and will feel comfort; you will know how to be meek; you will hunger and thirst for righteousness, and know how to be filled with more; you will know how and why to be merciful, and mercy will come your way; your heart will be purified, and you will see God working in the here and now; you will understand how to make peace; and, because you're "doing the righteousness," persecution WILL come your way!
Read this book, and you just might begin living the life you were called to live when you first became a Christian!

If you want to understand the Sermon on the Mount this is the book to read. D. Martin Lloyd-Jones has a masterful command of the scriptures and will keep you turning pages well into the night. I cannot imagine a better treatment of Jesus's most famous sermon.

I was first introduced to this book by Bible teacher John MacArthur. He considered D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones as the author that has most influenced his life. After reading SSM I agree with MacArthur -- this is one of the most gifted and Spirit-led authors of the 21st century. This book will help you see the depth of the Beatitudes and much, much more. There are few more powerful Christian books than this one.

Format: Paperback
I was raised in a "Christian" household but realize now that the behaviors shown were not at all Christian. It is one thing to quote a bible verse for every situation you find yourself, it is another to live the way Christ instructed.

The first chapters of this book freed me to believe again that Christianity is not just the ability to quote verse. Lloyd-Jones acknowledged all my skepticism because of the behavior I had seen Christians exhibit all my life. I found myself nodding and saying "yes, this is SO true." And it opened my heart for the truth of what Jesus had to say.

This book made me realize that I can call myself a Christian but what is truly in my heart and demonstrated in my behavior calls me something other.

I keep my student bible close by as he references many different parts and I would often find myself leaving his book to read his references. I try to read a chapter a day. I highlight, I make notes and when I'm done, I'm going to start again. Along with this book and my bible, I pray. Lloyd-Jones made me realize that I cannot exhibit Christ-like behavior of my own free will - it is only through Christ that this can happen - it is not natural behavior. My prayer is that others will see the change in me and ask me about it so I can be a light unto this world.

Additionally, I really haven't had much use for the Old Testament but I am eager to read and understand the entire bible now that this book has shown me that Jesus referenced the OT Scriptures that he expounded on them and that He actually fulfilled the prophesy of the Scriptures. I can no longer believe that the OT is irrelevant.

You will have questions answered and know what it means to accept Christ in your heart.

25 of 27 people found the following review helpful By Reverend R. G. Johnson on November 29, 2002
Format: Paperback
This book was written from a series of sermons brought by the author on Matthew 5-7. This man, Martin LLoyd-Jones, was truly anointed by God in his delivery and writing on the Beatitudes. The book should be read by all in the modern Charismatic/Pentecostal Church in order to truly understand what God's anointing on a person really is, and not the unmitigated rubbish emanating today from that quarter. It is absolutely brilliant, even after a second or third reading!

This book is absolutely amazing. I had studied the sermon on the mount a little bit prior to reading this, but Lloyd-Jones collection of sermons will truly inspire and challenge you in your daily life. Everyone should read this, and read it again. I read this in one sitting for the first time, but I would recommend reading it at a slower pace, perhaps a chapter per week because it is very profound and challenging material. Great book for a bible study.

I first read this book 2 months after becoming a Christian - 7 years later it is still one of the most influential books in my life. Simply brilliant, it will give you an in-depth understanding of the great teachings of Christ

Format: Paperback
If you love expository preaching (and I do), this book is for you (2 chapters on the same 2 verses, YES!), but it will NOT change your life: "Entering through the narrow gate" and "walking the narrow road" will. But this is THE BEST GUIDE to find the gate and walk the road IN REAL LIFE.

I have read a chapter a day in one sitting and can't wait to start over and do it again. Because each chapter is a sermon, the full flavor of the author's words and lessons would be much diminished by stopping in the middle and picking up again the next day. I plan to record this myself on CDs to play in the car (or, if you know anyone else who has done this, let me know!). I gave up starring the chapters as "this one is REALLY GOOD!" because the profundity and "aha!" moments are pervasive throughout.

This is not one to put on your list of "books I must have if stranded on a desert island" because the injunctions are only meaningful if lived out in community. (In fact, the author decries monasticism frequently.)

I would have to say as a lay person that the most profound illumination received from my first reading of the book is "the principle of the integrated whole" of the Sermon on the Mount. Bits and pieces of it have been thrown at me all my life ("Ask and it shall be given you"), but no one ever related the bits in context. I'm afraid I will violate the intent of the Sermon (to show me HOW to love my neighbor) the next time someone tries that! (Note to self: "first remove the beam from your own eye.")

What should the Christian's life look like? How do I "flesh out" the Sermon in my walking-around-every-day life? Read and weep.
