    THIS BOOK ROCKED MY WORLD! Probably had a lot to do with the life stage and mental condition I was in. I was in my early twenties, depressed (boyfriend troubles), and spending a lot of time in therapy discussions with God (OK, call it prayer). One day at work, I needed to use a special computer so was sitting at someone else's desk while they were on vacation, and I looked up and saw this book on his shelf (Sermon on the Mount). Feeling kinda close to God at that point of my life and intrigued b [...]

    Though not a Christian, I have heard a great deal that is good about this book, and thought I should finally get around to reading it. It is an interesting read, although Fox has a particular theological axe to grind, and grind he does.The basic premise of Fox's philosophy seems to be that if one believes in the teachings of Jesus, and prays about them in a particular way, one will be free of all disease and misfortune, including material difficulties. Not only does this reserve good fortune sol [...]

    While it is by no means official "recovery" literature, this books is a staple for many in Alcoholics Anonymous, especially the "old timers." Fox's writing style is hard to navigate, but the ideas ushered in our modern age of spirituality. Comforting and understandable ideas about viewing life as a spiritual exercise and journey. Before the age of audio books, I read portions of this and recorded it as a gift for an older friend who lived and died by these words.

  • Tammy Jorgenson

    Love this book! It sounds 'religious' but Emmet Fox nips that in the bud right away when he says: 'the plain fact is that Jesus taught no theology whatever. His teaching is entirely spiritual or metaphysical.'to be read over and over and over and

  • Allancarlson

    having read only 30 or so pages I am deeply engrossed by Fox's view of Christianity as distinct from Christian doctrine. I do not consider myself a "religious" person and do not regularly attend church. Fox claims that the most influential man in the history of Man had little use for organized relitionI'm inclined to read more.

    I guess I blew it with the timing of this review. This is a beautiful hardbound reprint of a 1934 classic, clearly meant as a gift option. The publication timing of November 2012 hints of a Christmas gift. Did any of you get or Barnes and Noble gift certificates for Christmas? My apologies, HarperOne, for not jumping on this sooner, to get the word out.Let’s start with the dirt on Emmet Fox (1886-1951). He was a spiritual teacher, and served as minister of the Divine Science church in New Yor [...]

  • William Anderson

    Very interesting exploration of Jesus' Sermon on the Mount from a "metaphysical Christianity" perspective. Corrnerstone of New Thought ideologytely profound thinking ranks withComplete Works of H. Emilie Cady in terms of a clear, concise and engaging exploration of New Thought theology. Worth reading for any intellectually engaged student of Christ, Christianity, and Spirituality. mainline and all evangelical Christians will find this highly objectionable and the premises to be down right hereti [...]

    This is a really excellent book that talks about the sermon on the mount in light of the teaching of New Thought thinkers. We can benefit greatly from them today if we are willing to stretch beyond the confines of strict dogmatic conventional teaching. You just keep reading and reading with a pen and a notebook in hand. Take what he says and formulate it into your own thoughts and begin to see how the teaching of the Bible can be such vivid, practical, realistic and overflowing with the power of [...]

    A few books will turn your perspective on a subject upside down. If the subject is spiritual life, then this book will do that. A careful study of these famous passages from Matthew 5 and 6 will disabuse you of many bad spiritual habits and thoughts. Fox's thorough digestion of the material adds clarity to the call, a call to a closer walk with Christ. There is a chapter devoted to every phrase in the Lord's Prayer. This book is a keeper.

    The Law of The Universe - What you think in your mind you will produce in your experience. As within, So without.Great Book, can't wait to read a few more times and really get to know God's Will for me in all areas of my life.

  • Jim George

    WE are all on a spiritual journey, granted some of us haven't yet acknowledged our quest, some of us are only in the beginning, and others are in the middle. While others are living the most peaceful, blessed, happiest lives ever even before thought imaginable or possible - these few are continuously living in God's presence. The author is one of the many, trying to share the Truth with those who are ready to hear it. The author's teachings are simplistic and profound. an enjoyable read that cou [...]

    The Sermon on the Mount is a Text Book I first read back in 2010.It has become the basic text in the many Emmet Fox books I now Study and use for meditations. The sermon on the Mount is a book that helps me gain spiritual perception, understand the nature of Divine Wisdome and the power of prayer.

  • Carol

    I have been on an Emmet Fox reading bender. I cannot get enough of this writing. Self help from 1932? Yes please! Also, a breakdown of bible symbolism. Very cool.

  • Maegan Jurewicz earnest

    My dad passes a lot of spiritual books my way. I really like this one, especially the interpretation of the Lord's Prayer. One could easily just read that section. Inspiring!!

  • James Hatton

    On April 4, 1998, I began a journey along the road to happy destiny. I sought a higher power. I was adamantly opposed to Christianity, so I searched elsewhere: Buddhism, Hinduism, Taoism, Shamanism, and others. Anything but the Judeo-Christian God. My search lasted three years. I was at a cookout and I told a friend that I had been reading the Tao Te Ching. She said, "You should read 'The Sermon on the Mount' by Emmet Fox." "OK. I'll check it out.", I lied. But lo and behold I did. It was my nex [...]

    I was lent this book from a coworker who read it and was gushing about how remarkable it was. I found this book to be less than remarkable. Emmet Fox takes a metaphysical look at interpreting the the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus' famed speech in the Gospel according to Matthew. In the first chapter, Fox deconstructs orthodox interpretations on scripture, stating that they have missed the boat completely and twist Jesus' words into elaborate doctrine. Thence, Fox reinterprets the Sermon on the Moun [...]

    The Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous, the 12 Steps and the underlying principles have gained almost mythical significance to those who claim their sobriety as a result of exposure to them and who adhere to the dogma that has evolved through their constant rehashing at meetings. This book was primary in the evolution of both the Program and the Big Book, the adaption of Fox's ideas was by no means entirely consistent with everything he proposed, (they were often inexpertly rehashed) but the more [...]

  • Felicia

    Emmet Fox and I do not agree on more than a few little issues BUT he deconstructs the "body" of religion for the separation it places between the individual and Jesus. Through Fox I was able to leave spiritual abuse behind and find comfort in the true teachings of Christ. Believe me, the inspiring message in this book for me has allowed me to find a relationship withJesus who truly did come to bring us a message of life, love and deliverance from ourselves and fromthose in religion whose purpose [...]

  • Mike

    there seems to be a consensus of authors in this era towards personal growth via the God path. They also tend to lean toward each person being soley responsible for their own growth and not by following the main stream religious order. I've always felt this way and have no interest in being preached at, or being directed by organized religion of any sort. Each to his own in his relationship to his God. This book offers no real choice to spiritual growth, just opportunity to discover we are respo [...]

  • Mark Bodenstein

    This is an amazing book. It makes a lot of sense to me and takes my understanding of the Bible and Christianity to a whole other level. When I finished it I immediately started reading it again, and am doing so now. There is a lot here to take in and to practice.I'm not sure if others will have the same experience. I feel I am in a place where this is the right book at the right time. I hope others do benefit from it as well. One thing I found odd - the book (at least the version I read) has abo [...]

    The Sermon on the Mount, by Emmett Fox has been around for a long time. Fox was considered 'New Age' in his time, born 1886. Fox has taken Jesus' sermon and broken it down into little pieces, explaining the applications for our own lives. Fox's Jesus is the Son of a loving Father who gives us divine direction for living happy and prosperous lives. It is worth the time to read and use the information that you may wish to apply personally.

  • Benjamin Thomas

    If you have an interest in learning what Jesus (an enlightened human) really meant with all of his parables and teachings, then read this book. It will reveal why people took an interest in Jesus in the first place and why he has become such a huge influence. this just makes it clear and reminds you how lost the church really is!

  • Christine Arella

    Some of the interpretations are a bit of a stretch, but If you skip chapter 2, and dismiss some of the more outlandish analyses, there's some great insights and masterful writing in there. Does smell suspiciously like the Four Noble Truths to me. But hey, different path/same mountain, right? Now that I'm past my petty balking @ The Beatitudes section, I'm bumping it up a star.

  • Andrea Alessi

    Every time I read this I learn new pearls. ie." Judge not that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged; and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measure to you again."and "Keep thy heart with all diligence, for out of it are the issues of life."and "Our wills are ours to make them Thine"I could go on, but I recommend you read it for yourself:)

  • Jaime Maldonado

    Love is at the center of Jesus' message. one must be open to the writer's interpretation and "see things" with the heart(and/or subconcious). Our multiple opinions of the subject matter deserve respect as we continue in our separate spiritual journeys searching for the truth.

  • Colleen Wainwright

    Straightforward, non-zealous, incredibly useful line-by-line "translation" of one of the key Christian texts, as well as one for The Lord's Prayer. If you can't read scripture for the sound of the baggage cars screeching as you do, this could be the book for you.

  • Tim

    Metaphysical take on Sermon on the Mount.trating so far because of the major holes in his non-theology theologybut there's bits of wisdom here too

  • Mark Fabiano

    Sermon on the Mount isn't a book you just read, you live it. you integrate it into your life. A book that compels you to do that is worth reading.

  • Lori

    This is absolutely one of the BEST books I've ever read. Reading it for about the 5th time after a couple of years! It is a book one would want to read over and over again! Never stop reading it!

  • Glenda

    One of the best books I've read. I highly recommend it.
