Words to live by

I was fortunate enough to visit the farm in the 70's.Clarence Jordan Jordan had just passed but his words in his many writings turned my life around. Don't miss reading his interpretation of Christ's greatest sermon.

St. Jordan

If you are serious about Jesus, this book will force you to take a giant step up the Christian ladder. Habitat for Humanity is with us today because the founder had a chance encounter with Clarence Jordan. Clarence Jordan was a one man ensemble: he walked Jesus, talked Jesus, lived Jesus, and wrote Jesus. Clarence Jordan integrated a farm in Georgia in the 1940's and lived to write about it. This book is not the farm experience, but this book comes out of Jordan's attempt to live the Sermon on the Mount on that farm. Before any other American public figure of the 20th Century, Jordan should be declared a Saint! Read this book and believe!

Life Changing!

Don't read this book unless you are ready to make some immediate changes in your life. It took me twice as long to read, because I found myself reading chapters over and over.Buy it - not only for yourself - but for everyone you care about as well!

Sermon on the Mount

Clarence Jordan did an outstanding job of dealing with this timeless message. He emphasizes the graphic teaching style of Jesus in a way that causes the material to snap into clear focus. For example, we learn that the word 'hraca' (Mt. 5.22) is not some obscure form of derision (RSV note), but rather the sound of a man preparing to spit! That's graphic, and it makes the teaching understandable. Dr. Jordan's approach to the scripture makes obvious what other commentators have obscured. In short, this is an outstanding book that is worth exploring.
