Jesus says you can do it.

Randy Harris believes it’s true. And he’s leading a movement of people who are doing it. College students and auto workers are following a teaching that changed the world. They are learning and living the message of the greatest sermon ever preached.

The Sermon on the Mount.

These famous words of Christ are controversial, often quoted, but rarely lived. G. K. Chesterton said Christianity has not been tried and found wanting; it has been found difficult and not tried.

Does Jesus really intend people to live out these hard teachings?

In twelve film segments, Randy Harris takes you into the teachings of Jesus that he says Jesus fully intends for us to obey and practice. Principles about integrity that’s not for sale, sexual purity that begins in the heart, and a life of obedience that’s a response to the profound grace of God.

This new DVD set is a training tool for people who want to live the way of Jesus. Centered on the Sermon on the Mount in Matthew 5-7, the video includes 12 segments of 12-15 minutes each.

Living Jesus

The Sermon on the Mount is more than great ideas by a great teacher. It is a way of life. Randy Harris invites you not just to understand these great teachings but to live them in ways you never before imagined.

This new book is a training tool for people who want to live the way of Jesus. Centered on the entire contents of the Sermon on the Mount found in Matthew 5-7, it unpacks the sermon in hard-hitting, easy-to-understand, and practical ways.

G. K. Chesterton said Christianity has not been tried and found wanting; it has been found difficult and not tried. Many people today view the Sermon on the Mount this way. They simply believe the teaching is too hard and give up in exasperation and guilt or confusion. The single most important interpretive key for the sermon, says Randy Harris, is to believe that Jesus really intended for us to live these teachings.

Martin Luther said the Sermon on the Mount is so difficult that we can only fall on the grace of God. The teachings are indeed difficult, and we can only fall on the grace of God, but this doesn’t mean the teachings cannot become a necessary guide for living the way of Jesus. The Sermon on the Mount, says Harris, is livable and this book is a guide to the greatest teaching of all time that will change your life forever.

Writing for Publication and Blogging

I have been writing for publication in printed magazines and books for fourteen years. I started a blog about a decade ago. A pattern emerges over time that when I’m on deadline for a book, you likely won’t see blog posts for a month or so. This is a combination apology-explanation of that pattern. Doesn’t help to give you any new content to read, but it does help me to realize that when I come up on deadlines, I ought to be aware and blog about what I’m working on.

The book I’m writing now is the first solo work I’ve done in ten years. I’m very proud of how it’s taking shape, but it’s a very complicated book that has required me to wake early most mornings to get 2-3 hours writing in before heading to my day job.

If you are an aspiring writer, get up early, stay up late, turn off the TV, carve out regular time, and write. Writers write.

The book I’m working on is narrative non-fiction, a story about a female doctor in Honduras who has fought a long battle in the mountains to establish medical clinics, only to have those facilities and staff members attacked by the rising influence of illegal drug trafficking. The murder rate in the mountain region where the doctor has helped establish clinics is that of a metropolitan area where the population is in the tens of thousands. How does the doctor face this challenge with weapons different from the cartels? Hers is a powerful story of courage and resolve to change the world, to put her life on the line for the sake of God and serving others.

The book is scheduled to be released by Leafwood Publishers September 2013.
