Living the Sermon on the Mount, theologian and award-winning author Glen H. Stassen helps us to see that the revolutionary ideas in the Sermon on the Mount about loving and caring for each other, living in peace, and acting justly are not unattainable ideals but a recipe for wholeness and healing in our human relationships and deliverance from the vicious cycles that we get stuck in.

"This is the most helpful analysis of the Sermon on the Mount that I have ever studied. It does not paralyze readers with idealism and force us to dismissal, nor does it back off from a very real initiative that we can take."
?Richard Rohr, Franciscan priest; founder of the Center for Action and Contemplation, Albuquerque, New Mexico "This book is the blessed fruit of Glen H. Stassen?s seminal studies of Jesus? Sermon on the Mount. Laced with memorable stories that illustrate the Sermon on the Mount?s realism, this book excels in its interpretation and appropriation of Jesus? hard words both personally and politically. Well written and often gripping, it deserves wide use by seminary and university students and church study groups.:
