Sermon on the Mount lessons with the goal of a transformed heart that leads to a life that pleases God.

Publishers Description
If you were sitting today on a hillside listening to Jesus Sermon on the Mount, how ought you respond? Become What You Are is the insider?'s guide to Jesus agenda the goal of "spiritual formation." This goal is a transformed heart, a change at the inner center of our being, that leads to a life that pleases God. Or, as a shorthand, it means becoming like Christ.This unique approach to the most famous sermon juxtaposes "analysis" with "practice" sections throughout. In the analysis sections, the essential meaning of the text what Jesus and Matthew were driving at is explained for each section of the sermon. A practice section follows, calling you to engage Jesus meaning for yourself.By understanding what the Sermon meant in its context and how you can take it seriously in this modern world, as a follower of Jesus, you will be able to become what you are.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
An excellent resource for spiritual formation groups  Feb 18, 2007
Dr. Klein's book is excellent for spiritual formation groups. This is less of an exposition of the Sermon on the Mount and more of a resource to apply the Sermon on the Mount. Isn't this why Jesus preached this sermon in the first place? Next to D.A. Carson's exposition on Matthew 5-7 and Glen Stassen's recent work on Living the Sermon on the Mount, this is exactly the kind of book that I'm looking for as a pastor. If you are on the journey of becoming who you are, then buy copies for you and your friends, study it with them and implement the suggestions which will keep the Church being salt and light to a world living in darkness.
sermon on the mount in simple language  Jan 18, 2007
I read this book while ending a business relationship that had gone very bad and very expensive. I still have a few notes that I took on the radically subversive words of Jesus from the Sermon on the Mount--to deride a person as a fool is as bad as murder; settle matters quickly with those from whom you are estranged; be merciful; don't swear falsely or bear false witness; don't resist an evildoer; and give to those who ask of you. Or maybe I should go to court, get even, get my due, and make him pay? No wonder that at the very end of Jesus's provocative preaching, "The crowds were astounded at his teaching, for he taught them as one having authority, and not as their scribes" (Matthew 7:28-29).

New Testament scholar William Klein (Denver Seminary) has written a simple exposition of the Sermon on the Mount that sparkles as a model of clarity, accessibility, and, most important of all, practical application. His goal for his readers does not stop with theological information. He aims for genuine transformation, or spiritual formation, from the inside out, what he calls "a change at the inner center of our being." The Sermon on the Mount, he writes, is "the quintessential explanation of who God's people are and what he desires them to become."

After an introductory chapter and a chapter on the setting of the text, Klein spends eight chapters expounding and applying the text. Each of these chapters begins with a brief analysis of the text, often no more than a page or two, then ends with applications, questions for real life practice, and personal reflection. Footnotes and bibliographical materials are modest but adequate for his purposes. I especially enjoyed his provocative questions. For example, how would my financial giving change if God alone knew what I gave? Klein also enhances his message by sharing some of his own successes and failures in spiritual formation (praying, fasting, anxiety, etc.). Like any good book, Klein leaves you wanting to dig deeper. Just when might a Christian consider divorce? Why do we not invoke the death penalty for adultery, as in the Old Testament? Exactly what is a pure heart? How does one judge wisely but avoid judgmentalism? I have always appreciated fine scholars like Klein who, in addition to their technical scholarship, write for the ordinary faithful, all of whom will benefit by considering his guide through these most famous words of Jesus.
