It has been said that Jesus Christ is always actual, and at the same time always anticipating actuality. This is something that Metropolitan Hilarion has made abundantly clear in his monumental six-volume study. As he observes, throughout history there has never been a person about whom so much has been written; and yet the Metropolitan has himself found many new ways to restate, in fresh and vivid terms, the ancient truths about the Savior. This is a remarkable study that deserves to be read with close attention.

The Sermon on the Mount encompasses the essence of the moral teachings of Christ. Metropolitan Hilarion—a scholar, prolific writer, and personal friend—explains the Sermon on the Mount in language that will be both appreciated by students of sacred Scriptures and understood by more casual readers. This book continually points to the person of Jesus Christ as the one who not only delivered the Sermon, but also personally lived out every facet of it, something we are all encouraged to emulate. I wholeheartedly recommend this volume as an important addition to the scholarship of Jesus.
