What if Jesus is smarter than we think? What if we valued his words like we do other great literature? What if we shrugged off shallow interpretations and looked for cohesive and purposeful insight from the mind of a master communicator? Might we come to a deeper understanding of his vision for humanity? This book attempts to do just that and shows us that the Sermon on the Mount is not just beautiful and profound, it also remains controversial and revolutionary in ways we have forgotten. ""Jaroszewski tackles the hard truths of the Sermon on the Mount in a disarming, yet sensitive fashion. Basics of the Christian life are presented in a new and perhaps controversial manner. He forces the reader to re-evaluate the familiar principles that Jesus proclaimed and taught while weaving some personal background into the text. The Trouble with Christians is a must read for those struggling with their Christian walk in today's culture."" --Brian D.
