About

Did you know you can read Jesus's Sermon on the Mount in about eighteen minutes? Yet packed into this short talk are more life-changing and startlingly original teachings than anywhere else in Scripture. Jesus dives past the surface into the heart of what we truly desire--from God, ourselves, and one another. It's the spiritual straight talk we need about the things that matter most in life.

Drawing from decades of study, Dr. Robert Jeffress breaks down Jesus's most well-known (yet least-followed) teachings about happiness, faith, relationships, sex, reconciliation, prayer, money, and more. He shows how we often misunderstand and misapply these verses and unpacks exactly what Jesus was teaching us about our own hearts and minds.

If you long to take your Christian walk to the next level, it's time to grasp these biblical truths that have the power to change your life.
