"Christian Reader, I here present you with a subject full of sweet variety. The sermon of Christ on the Mount is a piece of spiritual needlework, wrought with divers colors. Here is both usefulness and sweetness. In this portion of Holy Scripture, you have a summary of true religion the Bible epitomized. Here is a garden of delight, where you may pluck those flowers which will deck the hidden man of your heart. Here is the golden key which will open the gate of Paradise!" Thomas Watson
Watson's rich, insightful exposition of Matthew 5:1-12 beckons us to a deeper understanding of this magnificent passage; and in so doing, it invites us nearer the very heart of Christ.
