Richard Rohr leads us through the social, political and environmental setting out of which Matthew brought Christ’s radical message of a new world order. He explains Matthew’s challenge to let go of the conventional wisdom that comes with contemporary American culture. Each of seven talks brings us closer to the heart of the Sermon.

Would you listen to Sermon on the Mount again? Why?

I'm sure I'll be listening to this many, many times.

What does Richard Rohr bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Rohr's take on the Sermon on the Mount is wonderful. Honestly, this is the best teaching on Jesus I've heard in a long time. An important teaching, particularly for an affluent audience.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

The Jesus encountered in this series is deeply confronting and challenging. I felt simultaneously unsettled and comforted. I can't wait to listen through it again!

In this astute mix of cultural critique and biblical studies, John H. Walton presents and defends 20 propositions supporting a literary and theological understanding of Genesis 1 within the context of the ancient Near Eastern world and unpacks its implications for our modern scientific understanding of origins.
