The words of Jesus in the Sermon on the Mount have moved and challenged men and women since he first spoke them. Here hey are explained, simply and clearly, showing how Jesus mixed honesty with compassion and helped people to inject good into life. This is the New Law. The Old Law is the name given to the Ten Commandments, and this book starts with them. Are the rules, which guided a band of slaves escaping through the desert, worth thinking about now? Professor Barclay shows that they are. This straightforward study raises questions about war and peace, God and materialism, and about fostering essential relationships and values.
