I was given this book because I was struggling with The Sermon on the Mount, and it was very enlightening. I recommend this if you're struggling with it as well.

This book is inspiring for sure. And how can a book about the Sermon on the Mount be otherwise? Arnold had very interesting and radical ideas, which i like. But the problem for me was that it mostly was just that. Ideas. A very idealistic, visionary book that in my opinion lacked the practical tools and thus remained in the abstract realm of ideas too much.
