Compare the teachings of Jesus to a quick survey of how Christians live and one thing becomes apparent: we often ignore much of what He teaches. Skye Jethani exposes this problem through a deep examination of Christ’s largest section of ethical teaching: The Sermon on the Mount.
In What if Jesus Was Serious? Skye illustrates how we explain away elements of this crucial sermon to stay comfortable and justify disobedience. Each brief reflection will challenge you to rethink assumptions and apply Jesus’ teachings to today’s cultural realities. If Christians begin taking Jesus seriously, we may find that the rest of the world will too.
