What if Jesus expected us to take him seriously?
Marbury, Md. (PRWEB) September 26, 2012
In his book, “Building on the Rock: Practical Advice from Jesus!” (published by Trafford Publishing), Rev. Robert C Buehler asks the question, “How do the highest teachings of the man of Galilee lay the foundation for success in the real world?”
In “Building on the Rock,” Buehler brings together personal experience, a pastor's heart and solid scholarship in this fresh look at the foundation of Christian ethics in the words of Jesus. More than just a commentary, this book probes deeply the relevance of faith, showing how the ethical teaching of Jesus lies at the heart of Christianity, and provides practical wisdom for the secular world as well.
“The book is a discussion of the three chapters in Matthew’s Gospel (5, 6 and 7), commonly referred to as the Sermon on the Mount,” explains Buehler. “It strives to challenge the reader with a common-sense look at these teachings.”
With the publication of “Building on the Rock,” Buehler hopes to draw attention to some of the frequently ignored text of the Bible.
“It seemed to me that much popular evangelical teaching ignored or discounted what Jesus actually had to say, focusing almost exclusively on the significance of his death. I came at this with the question in mind, ‘What if Jesus expected us to take him seriously?”
