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)

5.0 out of 5 stars THE UNSEEN WORLD Nov. 16 2001
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 ›

5.0 out of 5 stars A long trip back. March 4 2002
By A Customer
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't be deceived May 24 2000
Format:Paperback
A good title and a catchy - if misleading - cover make this an intriguing book for Christians. I didn't realize when I bought the book that its author was the champion of Christian Science. But about 25 pages into it I began noticing and understanding that the author was acutally advancing his own plan for salvation based on the life of Jesus Christ. I pity him: his lack of "child-like" faith in Jesus; the exclusion of grace in his philosophizing; and the need to invent a theory in which it is possible for one to save oneself. This is a misconstruing of the Bible, along the lines of Jehovah's Witnesses, Mormons, New Age, etc. No question - THIS IS NOT THE GOSPEL OF JESUS. The book is in my garbage can.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't be deceived May 24 2000
Format:Paperback
The title and cover-presentation of the book are catchy and thetopic is certainly one worth investigating. I bought it not knowingthat the author was the champion of Christian Science. Twenty-five pages into the book I began noticing how the author was advancing his own man-made theory of salvation - based on the life of Jesus. I pity the author; his lack of "child-like" faith in Jesus Christ; unwillingness to accept the grace of Jesus; and his need to invent theories to save himself. This is a misconstruing of the bible... This is NOT the gospel that Jesus taught. The book is in my garbage can.

By A Customer
Format:Paperback
The point of the this book is that through proper prayer you can achieve anything, even healing miracles. It is basically a recipe to control your environment. Although there are truths in here, its message is very non-Traditional Christian in my opinion (for example Fox explicity espouses the principle of Karma), and almost completely contrary to AA's program where you are taught surrender to too seek God's will. In this book God's will is given only lip service--Fox says to pray for specific things that you want so you will granted them. This is more of new age book than a Christian book

4.0 out of 5 stars The Truth Works... July 12 2004
Format:Paperback
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.
