Douglas Webster (Regent College Publishing)

Douglas Webster, professor of theology and Christian preaching at Beeson Divinity School, Samford University, offers a pastoral and theological application of the Sermon on the Mount, contextualized, as the title suggests, for our secular age. Following the thought of philosopher Charles Taylor, which suggests that many modern people have experienced a profound loss of meaning in the wake of widespread skepticism toward the existence of a reality beyond the material world, Webster offers challenging, yet hopeful counternarratives drawn from Jesus’ teaching in the Sermon on the Mount. This concise, accessible booklet, which could be read in one sitting (53 pages in total), is perfect material for small group discussion, a gift for a struggling friend, or distribution at a church resource table.
