Product Description

From Amazon

The Sermon on the Mount--now passing its 65th birthday--remains a vital and provocative introduction to the ideas at the heart of Christian Science. At heart it means to be entirely practical, as the "Science" of the name would indicate. Denying any interest in theology (there is no theology in the Bible, Fox argues), the author instead suggests that what Jesus was after was results: "Jesus explains to us what the nature of God is, and what our own nature is; tells us the meaning of life and of death; shows us why we make mistakes; why we yield to temptation; why we become sick, and impoverished, and old; and, most important of all, he tells us how all these evils may be overcome, and how we may bring health, happiness, and true prosperity into our lives."

And the Spiritual Key? Fox puts it quite simply: "The Truth turns out to be nothing less than the amazing but undeniable fact that the whole outer world--whether it be the physical body, the common things of life, the winds and the rain, the clouds, the earth itself--is amenable to man's thought, and that he has dominion over it when he knows it." --Doug Thorpe

Review

“A practical handbook of spiritual development . . . [Fox] gives his readers a profound outlook upon life and an absolutely fresh scale of values.” (New York Times Book Review)

Emmet Fox has been a major spiritual inspiration in my life and a significant intellectual force behind all my work. (Steve Chandler, author of The Story of You)

“Emmet Fox was one of the world’s greatest metaphysical teachers. His works have contributed profoundly to the spiritual understanding of millions of people, including myself.” (Marianne Williamson, author of A Return to Love)

Format: Paperback
"Sermon On The Mount", is about Metaphysics, or states of consciousness. Fox, and Priests that I have spoken to over the years, say that Jesus was more concerned with what you think, than what you do. It is an inside job, and that is what this book is about. Fox tells you what Jesus was about; what he was really saying. As I read this, I started to see my whole existance differently and I saw everything around me differently. This is an extremely powerful book that one has to be ready for. If you are interested in dealing with your truths and you are into Jesus, then you need to read this. It is a frightening book, because you just might be reading the truth, and that scares people. I have no interest in telling you what Fox says, because we all interpret things differently, and I don't want me in your head while you are reading it. One needs to formulate their own opinions, in general. If you are a person with any type of addiction, this book will put you in a different place in your recovery. The book will definately improve your life, because at the very least it will give you a different perspective on everything. The book makes you think. If you don't want to think, don't buy this. It is understandable. It is not that difficult of a read. I am not that smart and I get it. I think it is totally brilliant, and has helped me in my daily life. Fox has his interpretation of Jesus' Sermon On The Mount at the end, line by line. I came to the same conclusion about the line "forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us", that Fox does, and it helped me to forgive people in my life. Fox states that Jesus said forgiving is one of the most important things you can do in life. This book helped me do that.Read more ›

Format: Paperback
I am a recovering alcoholic. A few months back I went on an 8 day cruise to Central America. When the ship left the dock I was seized by a panic, I would be stuck on this ship, away from my support group in no less than a floating bar. I was up most of the first night. The next day I found this book (a friend had loaned it to me) and in desperation I started reading. By the end of the day my panic had passed and I felt closer to God than I had in a long time. I thought I had given up on Jesus many many years ago and that was the attitude I had when I boarded the ship. After reading this book I stepped on to the shore in Miami a Christian again, something I thought was quite impossible. This is a very powerful book. Mr. Fox sweeps away centuries of religious dogma and brings us back to the spiritual principals Jesus actually taught. I have read it several times since my trip. It has done nothing less than revolutionize my whole outlook on life and recovery. The right book at exactly the right time in my life. I pray it will do the same for you.

By Pieter Uys HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on Oct. 13 2007
Format: Paperback
Of the classical New Thought writers of the 20th century, Emmet Fox and Ernest Holmes are the ones who adhere most closely to the Judeo-Christian tradition. Fox focuses exclusively on the esoteric symbolic exegesis ("Sod" in Hebrew), although in same places he admits that the literal ("Pashat" in Hebrew) is as it stands. In this regard it is always helpful to study the way in which the Hebrew sages approach the text, in both the Talmud and the Zohar.

The aim of the book is to provide the reader with a practical manual of spiritual development. Chapter One: What Did Jesus Teach? explains how the teachings of Messiah underpin 2000 years of Western civilization and shows that what he really taught was a practical method for the development of the soul and the shaping of our lives. Jesus explains to us the nature of God, our own nature, the meaning of life and death, why we make mistakes, and tells us how to overcome and bring health, joy and prosperity into our own lives and those of others.

Fox points out that Jesus taught no theology whatsoever - his teaching is entirely spiritual or metaphysical. Unfortunately historical Christianity has mostly concerned itself with theological and doctrinal matters that have little relevance to Gospel teaching. For example, there is no warrant at all for setting up any form of Ecclesiasticism, of any hierarchy of officials or system of ritual. Jesus taught principles of conduct, knowing that if the spirit is right, details would take care of themselves.

The author emphasizes that the recorded miracles did happen and that prayer does change things. But prayer is both a science and an art, and Jesus devoted most of his teaching to explain this.

The traditional interpretations of Jesus the Christ's teachings have turned thinking individuals into opponents of the Bible. Well, Mr. Fox's work (I read the original version published in the 1930's) provides some acceptable insights.
While Mr. Fox's works are slightly skewed in his references to how the "European race" has civilized the rest of the world, brought order where there is chaos, etc., etc., there is a solid message here.
His analysis the Sermon on the Mount (Mathew 5, 6 and 7 in the Bible), demonstrates beyond a shadow of a doubt that the mind is the builder of all that is in the life of man and woman.
If you are a Christian fundamentalist who has decided not to question literal, traditional interpretations of the Bible in any way, this book is not for you. However, if you find that traditional, mainstream Christianity doesn't fit into your views of life and yet you still believe in the fundamental usefulness of the core teachings of Christianity, I offer that you do the following:
1) Read this book with an open mind
2) Test some the principles in your own life, applying the principles to the resolution of problems that have heretofore not been solved using other methods
3) See what happens.
Every New Thought book I review I also mention the works of Dr. Joseph Murphy's ("The Power of Your Subconscious Mind" is his most famous) because they have had such an impact on my life as well the lives of countless others. If you are new to New Thought and are trying to decide which books to buy, I say read Joseph Murphy Book "Telepsychics" where he discusses Emmet Fox and this book as well.
