      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”?

Great presentation & explanation of The Sermon on the Mount

Dr Bergsma’s approach makes it easy to remember his explanations. He throws in humor as well - wish I could see the drawings but I had audio only. He inspires me to look into St Josemaria Escriva, too.

All I can say I learned a lot of new things in it. I mean, the Word of God is becoming clear to me.

The most beautiful message explained

What a wonderful job Dr. Bergsma did going through the Sermon on the Mount. Rich in biblical explanations and edifying reflections. If you want to get the nuances and the scriptural meaning of the greatest sermon ever preached, this is the study to get.

Very Illuminating

I loved this talk. It gave a great introduction into the Song of Solomon, and how it is interpreted. Dr. Pitre clarified this often misunderstood text and prompted me to want to learn more about Jesus as The Bridegroom (so I am now listening to Dr. Pitre's talk "Jesus the Bridegroom"). Well worth the buy.

Very Good Biblical Study on Mary and Her Role in God's Plan

Dr. Pitre does a great job explaining biblically Mary's role and some reasons the veneration that we give her as Catholics. I knew some general concepts about this already, but his talk was very good at bringing these teachings together and expounding more fully upon these mysteries.

Excellent Explanation of the Mass as Biblical Worship

I can't tell you how many times I have used what I learned in this series when talking to both Catholics and Protestants. It is very relevant for a time when even Catholics are confused about the meaning and significance of the Mass.

Another great work by Dr. Pitre

Dr. Pitre does not disappoint in his latest look at St. Joseph, using Scripture, Church History and the Fathers to Get to the heart of who St. Joseph was. What a great resource. I can't wait for the book!
