The last three books that I have randomly found via the public library or friends have had a common theme: The Sermon on the Mount. I think that God is trying to tell me something.
The first book was a textbook used by the students who helped us here in Guatemala from Mount Vernon Nazarene University. They use Kingdom Ethics as the text for their ethics class. I only had a chance to read the introduction, but hope to be able to pick the book up at a later date. The approach to ethics is based on the Sermon on the Mount.
The second book was a lesser-known work of none other than Leo Tolstoy. The book is entitled: The Kingdom of God Is Within You.
I am reading the third book now, and was not at all surprised that once again I stumbled upon the theme of the Sermon on the Mount. This is the biography entitled: Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy by Eric Metaxas.
So, I know that I will be reflecting on the Sermon on the Mount in the upcoming days. Perhaps you will join me.
