Summary Formats Reviews About the author Annotations


Thomas Watson lived during a volatile time for the English church. As a non-conformist preacher, he faced frequent shifts concerning the legality of his ministry. Here, he analyzes Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount, which he considered to be “the Bible epitomized.” As Watson explains, Jesus calls all Christians to love others, have patience, and live lives free of sin. Reiterating this message, Watson reinforces it and inspires readers to take on Christ’s challenge and follow him.
