Join us for an awesome and transformative episode of The Cosmic Eye!
In the book Fox explores the idea of "What did Jesus teach?" Distilled from years of study and lecture, affirmed by nearly a million readers over the last fifty years, Emmet Fox's answer in The Sermon on the Mount is simple. The Bible is a "textbook of metaphysics" and the teachings of Jesus express--without dogma--a practical approach for the development of the soul and for the shaping of our lives into what we really wish them to be. For Fox, Jesus was "no sentimental dreamer, no mere dealer in empty platitudes, but the unflinching realist that only a great mystic can be." This New Thought, Mind Science, and Christian Science classic is often used in Addiction Recovery, AA, and other group settings because it is so powerful. Fox's ideas were influential in the Law of Attraction, the movie The Secret, and other New Age teachings.
