In the last few years Baker Books has been re-issuing a number of D.A. Carson’s works. Most recenly Baker re-released two works in one volume titled, Jesus’s Sermon on the Mount and His Confrontation with the World. This volume is the combination of the work “Jesus’s Sermon on the Mount” and “His Confrontation with the World.” The with no true title change it helps anyone know what they are actaully buying.
In this combination of works, Carson studies the sermon on the mount (Matthew 5:3-7:28) and Matthew 8-10:42. This section on the sermon on the mount is one of the greatest works on the sermon on the mount ever written. It has truly helped me in my study of that section of Gospel according the Matthew. Carson breaks the sermon on the mount up in a way that a Pastor can use as a sermon series outline, if they are preaching exegetically though that section of Matthew.
With reguard to “Jesus’ Confreontation with the World” while it is not as helpful as the section on the sermon on the mount. It will truly be benifical to the Bible Study teacher, Sunday School teacher, or Pastor.
I received this work from Baker Academic, for the purpose of an unbiased review.
