For all who delight in paradox; for all who need a spiritual pick-me-up-and-kick-me-forward; for all whose spirit is burdened with life’’s ennui or poisoned with the cyanide of guilt, loneliness, lust, or resentment, Jesus in the Sermon on the Mount promises blessing beyond belief.

With integrity and sensitivity Dr. Williams conveys the teaching embedded in the passage in ways that make for ready comprehension and acceptance. A writer and preacher of uncommon skill, Dr. Williams knows how to expound ancient truths to the contemporary culture, and she is refreshingly accurate and interesting in doing so.
