Matthew 5-7 The Sermon on the Mount (Matthieu 5-7 Le Sermon sur la montagne)
What is more familiar in the Bible than the Sermon on the Mount? Who does not associate the straw and the beam, or the Beatitudes with the name of Jesus? Induced into temptation by this familiarity, many are those who expect nothing new from their reading ...
No one will open their eyes better than John Stott ...
The proximity of his commentary to the Sermon of Jesus itself does not prevent his constant attention to the present world. We feel him nourished by readings and reflections as well as by the experience of the globetrotter with an open mind ... He is sensitive to the community vocation that the Sermon addresses, outside of individualism and collectivism, these two symmetrical disfigurements of human.
-Henri Blocher (extract from his preface)
