Shelf Life Book Review: A Deeper look at the Sermon on the Mount

Matthew James Hamilton

A Deeper Look at the Sermon on the Mount
InterVarsity Press, 2013

Dale and Sandy Larson, editors of this study, have written new material to compliment John Stott’s LifeGuide Bible Study and The Message of the Sermon on the Mount.

Each session is divided into four parts. The first part, titled “Investigate,” encourages an inductive Bible study approach by posing questions about the text. The session then moves on to “Connect: Scripture to Scripture,” in which the Larsons have placed passages from the Sermon on the Mount into their canonical, historical and cultural contexts. In the third part, “Reflect,” the theme of each lesson is expanded through story or commentary meant for individual study. Finally, “Discuss: Putting It All Together” provides an outline and questions for group discussion.

This resource contains 12 sessions and is aimed at individuals or small groups.
