Video Interview Clips on The Sermon on the Mount and Human Flourishing

A couple of weeks ago some folks at my school came by my office for a chat about my new book, The Sermon on the Mount and Human Flourishing: A Theological Commentary.

I never know exactly what’s going to come out of my mouth in these scenarios, but having now seen what they recorded I’m glad to say I agree with everything I said!

In fact, I think these clips do give a good sense of what I’m trying to do in the book, though obviously with 350 pages more of detail.

Here are the links. Each short clip is in response to a particular question:

    Dr. Pennington,

    I have a growing number of Sojourn Network pastors and church planters who are interested in reading this book together. Do you have any resources for a guided discussion on this book? Any suggestions or resources you have would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Hey, Casey, thanks for your interest. I don’t currently have a study guide but that’s a great idea and I could probably put something together. If you get a group together to read it I’d also be happy to schedule a time to video chat with your group; that would be fun!
