Jesus’ Alternative Plan: The Sermon on the Mount

Richard Rohr

( Franciscan Media )

When Jesus talked about the Kingdom of God, he was talking about an utterly different way of relating to human society as we know it. He lays out a blueprint for this new life in his best-known teaching, the Sermon on the Mount. From the Beatitudes onward, the Sermon on the Mount overturns conventional wisdom and traditional power structures, offering a plan for an alternative way of being. Acclaimed spiritual leader and Franciscan priest Richard Rohr explores the implications of this vision in Jesus’ Alternative Plan. Rohr goes through the teachings of the sermon, explaining the historical and cultural context of each verse and offering guidance for what it means for Christians today. The result is a clear, yet challenging look at the alternative plan laid out by Jesus for all to see. This updated edition of Jesus’ Plan for a New World will inspire Christians desiring a transformative understanding of Jesus’ teachings and seeking the true heart of their faith.
