Truth Standing On Its Head
Insight for an Extraordinary Christian Walk from The Sermon on the Mount
John N. Day, PhD
Nordskog Publishing Inc
Dr. John Day, Bible scholar and pastor, begins with the paradoxical Beatitudes and takes us through our Lord’s greatest Sermon in depth, offering readers a “mind-expanding and life-transforming” experience.
How can the meek inherit the earth? How are the persecuted blessed? While these are not things that we naturally associate with happiness, this is Jesus’ startling opposite-from-the-world way of bringing us into the most blessed and happy life—an extraordinary Christian walk.
“This provocative break with our own comfortable presuppositions ultimately drives us to the Cross where our own failings can be exchanged for the righteousness of Christ.”
John N. Day is the pastor of the Longbranch Community Church in Longbranch, WA, where he has served since 2011.
