It is the greatest sermon ever preached. By anyone. Anywhere. Period. The early Church Fathers quoted more from this sermon than any other part of the Bible. St. Augustine considered it the summary of Christian faith and life. It has inspired countless numbers of people to abandon their wealth and comfort in order to devote themselves to prayer and serving the poor. Without it, the health care and social service systems of Western societies would never have developed. In recent times, it has profoundly shaped the lives of world-historical figures: Leo Tolstoy, Mahatma Ghandi, Blessed Theresa of Calcutta.
Yet for all this, how many Christians have read the Sermon on the Mount through in one sitting? How many could even find it in the Bible, much less explain what it means and how it should be put into practice?
In this four-hour CD set, Dr. Bergsma teaches through the Sermon on the Mount, addressing questions like:
• Is there a theme that ties this Sermon together?
• What does it mean to be “poor in Spirit?”
• Why is the Sermon on the Mount like a pilgrimage to the true Temple?
• Does Jesus really forbid self-defense?
• Does Jesus really expect us to be “perfect”?
I have listened to this four times so far! Amazing talk! So much to learn. Great sense of humour! Dr. Bergsma is very talented.
is a great teaching ever experienced
If you want a understandable, engaging, and illuminating explanation of The Sermon on the Mount told with wit and elegance this is for you.
Wonderful and life changing!
I have bought hundreds of CDs from catholic productions and I will continue to do !!
Inspiring and thought provoking presentation that helped clarify the most famous, yet sometimes misuderstood, teaching of Our Lord. Not to be missed!
