Item Description...
"We are in on this conversation about trust together. I make hold to represent you. Then I bid you to pass on its words of grace and trust to others, since they join us in being in this together." With these words, Marty E. Marty invites the reader into a conversation with Martin Luther and with that part of Matthew's Gospel known as the sermon on the Mount. As Luther comments on the "Sermon," so Marty comments on Luther. We overhear, but more than that, we are drawn into the conversation about the place of trust in the life of faith, about prayer, and about what Marty calls the "overturning" nature of the Beatitudes. With clear insight, a pastoral heart, and a personal touch, Marty provides a glimpse of Luther the man while engaging the reader in exploring the meaning both of Luther's commentary and Matthew's text. Hear Dr. Marty's hope for the reader in his own words.

Publishers Description
Speaking of Trust: Conversing with Luther about the Sermon on the Mount brings together passages from Luther's preaching on the Sermon on the Mount and Marty's comments about the place of trust in the life of faith. Marty has arranged Luther's words under three main topics: trust, prayer, and the Beatitudes.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
An Alternative to Boring Commentaries  Aug 3, 2006
A unique and helpful way to study the New Testament's Sermon on the Mount. If nothing else, it gives us Martin Luther's pastoral thoughts on the sermon in an engaging format. Those looking for a more technical analysis of the Sermon on the Mount will not find their time best sent in this work - although it is a great devotional read.
