From the Inside Flap
"In dealing with the Sermon on the Mount we are dealing with the need for a new life rather than with a legalistic system of morality."
This commentary on Matthew 5-7 displays James Montgomery Boice's trademark blend of thoughtful interpretation and contemporary insight for daily living. It examines each chapter in detail and brings you into intimate contact with the person and nature of Jesus-the one who personified the Beatitudes and calls us to a pure righteousness that flows from a regenerated heart.
Both expositional and inspirational, The Sermon on the Mount contains teachings that are ideal models for preachers and excellent resources for personal study or Bible classes.
James Montgomery Boice (1938-2000) was senior pastor of the historic Tenth Presbyterian Church in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He was also the president and cofounder of the Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals, the parent organization of The Bible Study Hour, on which Boice was a speaker for more than thirty years. His many commentaries include The Minor Prophets, Psalms, The Gospel of Matthew, The Gospel of John, Acts, Romans, and Ephesians.
From the Back Cover
Jesus' Sermon on the Mount shows us the absolute necessity of the new birth and a regenerated heart. It points us to Jesus himself. And it indicates the way to blessing for Christians-how we can please our heavenly Father.
In this unique addition to his popular commentary series, James Montgomery Boice provides an in-depth look into the Sermon on the Mount found in Matthew 5-7. He explains the meaning of the text verse by verse and relates its concerns to today's world, the church, and the realities of the Christian life.
Boice's clear, practical writing makes The Sermon on the Mount a helpful commentary for a wide range of readers, from serious Bible students to interested laypersons, and helps you understand and apply the truths found in Jesus' teaching. It covers such topics as:
" The Secret of Happiness
" How to Rejoice in Persecutions

" Divorce and Remarriage
" How to Pray
" The Names of God
" How to Defeat Temptation
