Book Review: The Sermon on the Mount: The Key to Success in Life

The Sermon on the Mount is a book penned by the renowned spiritual leader Emmet Fox. Capitalizing on the timeless lessons of the beatitudes and wisdom offered by Jesus Christ during the sermon, Mr. Fox infuses evergreen values into a healthy perspective on everyday life situations.

One of the pivotal truths is the fact that man has been put in charge of a kingdom, but unfortunately he is either woefully unaware of this fact or takes this awesome responsibility far too lightly. Moreover, Mr. Fox makes quick work of the deceptive thinking surrounding so called justified anger and resentment. He explains that within the Christian walk it is nothing short of lunacy to forfeit the position of royal priest in favor holding on to petty disagreements and anger.

This is one of the reasons why The Sermon on the Mount is such a crucial book to read for Christian parents: if bitterness, frustration and anger have snuck into the daily lifestyle and household, it will be hard – if not impossible – to inspire children to reach for their positions as fellow sharers of the gospel and evangelists to a lost world. Before long, teens who are baptized will have to deal with disappointments and frustrations, and the message will get lost in the shuffle of anger, resentment and bitterness, all of which was learned in the home.

Avoid this deadly setup by getting your own life on track and then ensuring that the next generation learns from your example how to “be content, always.”
