"I fancy I have never written a book in which I did not quote from George MacDonald]." - C. S. Lewis, from the preface of his book George MacDonald: An Anthology
"George MacDonald gives me renewed strength during times of trouble-times when I have seen people tempted to deny God." - Madeleine L'Engle, from her book Walking on Water: Reflections on Faith and Art
What if Christians all over the world had a deeper understanding of Jesus' most famous sermon? In The Hope of the Gospel, George MacDonald, who profoundly influenced C. S. Lewis, J. R. R. Tolkien, G. K. Chesterton, Oswald Chambers, and Madeleine L'Engle, explores the deeper meaning of Jesus' Sermon on the Mount.
Throughout the 12 chapters, MacDonald masterfully explains the often misunderstood teachings of Jesus that can sometimes seem nonsensical. For example, when exploring the idea that those who mourn will be blessed, MacDonald says, "A man in sorrow is in general far nearer God than a man in joy."
The Hope of the Gospel is for Christians who love the teachings of Jesus but want a deeper, more insightful understanding of them. MacDonald doesn't pull any punches-his straightforward style confronts and inspires readers to line up their lives with God's commands so they can enjoy a more meaningful, loving relationship with their Creator.
Among the topics MacDonald explores are the following:
- The Beatitudes
- Being salt and light
- Jesus' parents searching for him
- Taking on Jesus' yoke
- Becoming more childlike
While the language has been updated, MacDonald's life-changing message hasn't been compromised. Discussion/reflection questions at the end of each chapter make The Hope of the Gospel perfect for either individual or group study. As you read The Hope of the Gospel, you will undoubtedly find yourself stopping to ponder the many nuggets of truth and examining how to apply them to your life.
