Renowned scientist, philosopher, teacher, and one of the most influential spiritual leaders of the 20th century, Emmet Fox was a pioneer of positive thinking whose bold, dynamic message that our thoughts shape our reality is timeless. His classic work, Sermon on the Mount: The Key to Success in Life, is now available in a beautiful gift edition. A manual for living harmoniously, Sermon on the Mount provides powerful wisdom that has already influenced such esteemed writers as Wayne Dyer, Esther Hicks, and Louise Hay. For anyone seeking guidance in their life, for anyone influenced by The Law of Attraction and The Secret, and by the teachings of fellow New Thought leader Eric Butterworth, Fox’s words and ideas will resonate deeply.
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
