One of the most influential teachings in Christian history is Matthew 5-7, Jesus's Sermon on the Mount. Many pastors have delved into this passage, but none has offered such a comprehensive, up-to-date, and accessible exposition. Until now. Known for his keen insight and biblical understanding, Dr. R. T. Kendall offers an in-depth, verse-by-verse, and lay-friendly exposition of this matchless sermon. In fact, he gives the most thorough and comprehensive interpretation of this passage to date. His compelling, devotional-style writing brings the words of Jesus to life, and he shows readers how to put these teachings to work in their own lives. An unforgettable book for the lay reader and pastor alike.

From the political halls of Capitol Hill to the spiritual heights of Mount Zion, this is the important account of a man, a vision, a message, and the organizations he shaped. Hirsch championed civil rights with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., spread Progressive Judaism around the world - especially in the Former Soviet Union - and he inspired a more Zionistic Reform Judaism.

Emphasizing the historical distance between the New Testament and our contemporary culture, The Sermon on the Mount by Scot McKnight, part of the new The Story of God Bible Commentary series, offers helpful contextual insights for those seeking to discern how to live out the Bible in today’s world. Perfect for pastors, students, Sunday school teachers, and lay people alike, this highly anticipated series provides a clear and compelling exposition of the text in the context of the Bible’s overarching story. The authors move away from “application” language, which has been criticized as being too simplistic, encouraging instead a wider perspective and discussion of how the biblical story can be lived today. Offering a new type of application commentary for today’s context, the Story of God Bible Commentary series explains and illuminates Scripture as God’s Story, with each New Testament text examined as embedded in its canonical and historical setting, in order to foster discernment in living the story faithfully and creatively with and for the Church in the 21st Century.

Climbing Mount Improbable

How could such an intricate object as the human eye - so complex and so precise - have come about by chance? In this masterful piece of popular science, Richard Dawkins builds a powerful and carefully reasoned argument for evolutionary adapatation as the force behind all life on earth. The metaphor of 'Mount Improbable' represents the combination of perfection and improbability that we find in the seemingly 'designed' complexity of living things. And through it all runs the thread of DNA, the molecule of life, responsible for its own destiny on an unending pilgrimage through time. Evocative illustrations accompany Dawkins' eloquent descriptions of astonishing adaptations in the living world.

The Sermon on the Mount, one of the most influential portions of the Bible, is the most studied and commented upon portion of the Christian Scriptures. Every Christian generation turns to it for insight and guidance. In this volume, a recognized expert on the Gospels shows that the Sermon on the Mount offers a clear window into understanding God's work in Christ. Jonathan Pennington provides a historical, theological, and literary commentary on the Sermon and explains how this text offers insight into God's plan for human flourishing. As Pennington explores the literary dimensions and theological themes of this famous passage, he situates the Sermon in dialogue with the Jewish and Greek virtue traditions and the philosophical-theological question of human flourishing. He also relates the Sermon's theological themes to contemporary issues such as ethics, philosophy, and economics.

Ascent of Mount Carmel

"St. John of the Cross lived a monastic and ascetic life, believing this was the best way to combat the evils of the world, the flesh, and the Devil, and to focus on God alone. The Ascent of Mount Carmel, which he began composing after his escape from prison, is the story of the loneliness and suffering of the soul before its reunion with God. Included in this volume is not only the relatively brief poem only eight stanzas long but the poet s own stanza-by-stanza, line-by-line, and verse-by-verse deconstruction as well. Divided into three books (and a grand total of 91 chapters), The Ascent of Mount Carmel also contains footnotes to verses of scripture referred to in the poem. Spanish mystic and poet ST. JOHN OF THE CROSS (1542 1591) played a major role in the Catholic Reformation of the 16th century, and produced several renowned writings, including his Spiritual Canticle, The Dark Night of the Soul, and Sayings of Love and Peace."

A Sanctuary of Zeus on Mount Hymettos

This is the final publication of a small open-air sanctuary of Zeus on Mt. Hymettos above Athens, excavated between the World Wars by Carl Blegen and Rodney Young. The finds reflect two periods of activity: from 950 to 575 B.C. (many domestic cups and jugs, burnt animal bones), and the decades on either side of A.D. 400 (some 120 Late Roman lamps). The most significant find, however, was of 170 graffiti indicating a surprisingly high level of literacy in Attica in the 7th century B.C.

Alles, was Sie wissen, ist falsch. Was, wenn all das, was wir als gesichert und selbstverständlich annehmen, nicht stimmt? Was, wenn Ihr Haus nie gebaut wurde, Ihr Job nicht existiert, Ihre Frau Sie nie zuvor gesehen hat? Würden Sie sich dann auf die Suche nach Ihrem Leben machen? Peter Saunders erwacht in einem Krankenhaus in Cincinnati. Er hat wirre Vorstellungen von einem Autounfall und einer Wanderung mit seinem Freund Luther, die in einem heftigen Gewittersturm endete. Darüber hinaus hat er Erinnerungen an ein Leben, das er offenbar nie geführt hat. Was Saunders nicht weiß, ist, dass er während eines unglaublichen Experiments in einem Forschungstunnel des Mount Maroon Laboratory entdeckt wurde. War er für die gewaltige Explosion verantwortlich, bei der zwei Techniker getötet wurden? Ist er ein Umweltschützer oder gar ein Terrorist? Dann tauchen mysteriöse Fakten auf. Als Peter Saunders eine schreckliche Entdeckung macht, beginnt eine wilde Jagd auf der Suche nach Identität und Wahrheit. Ethan Bayce legt mit Mount Maroon den möglicherweise spannendsten und anspruchsvollsten Wissenschaftsthriller seit Frank Schätzings Der Schwarm vor. An vorderster Front des bekannten Wissens - wie einst H.G. Wells - wirft Bayce wissenschaftliche und philosophische Fragen auf, die auch nach dem Zuklappen des Buches weiterwirken. Anders als in manchen ähnlich gelagerten Büchern kennt der Autor seine Materie sehr genau. Spannend, tiefsinnig und beklemmend wartet Bayce mit einer überraschenden und wissenschaftlich schlüssigen Auflösung auf. Ein Thriller der Spitzenklasse.

A missing God. A library with the secrets to the universe. A woman too busy to notice her heart slipping away. Carolyn's not so different from the other people around her. She likes guacamole and cigarettes and steak. She knows how to use a phone. Clothes are a bit tricky, but everyone says nice things about her outfit with the Christmas sweater over the gold bicycle shorts. After all, she was a normal American herself once. That was a long time ago, of course. Before her parents died. Before she and the others were taken in by the man they called Father. In the years since then, Carolyn hasn't had a chance to get out much. Instead, she and her adopted siblings have been raised according to Father's ancient customs. They've studied the books in his Library and learned some of the secrets of his power. And sometimes, they've wondered if their cruel tutor might secretly be God. Now, Father is missing—perhaps even dead—and the Library that holds his secrets stands unguarded. And with it, control over all of creation. As Carolyn gathers the tools she needs for the battle to come, fierce competitors for this prize align against her, all of them with powers that far exceed her own. But Carolyn has accounted for this. And Carolyn has a plan. The only trouble is that in the war to make a new God, she's forgotten to protect the things that make her human. Populated by an unforgettable cast of characters and propelled by a plot that will shock you again and again, The Library at Mount Char is at once horrifying and hilarious, mind-blowingly alien and heartbreakingly human, sweepingly visionary and nail-bitingly thrilling—and signals the arrival of a major new voice in fantasy.
