Publisher's Summary

This classic work by Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen juxtaposes Christ's words in the Sermon on the Mount with his last words on the cross at Calvary. Both the beatitudes and the words from the cross were delivered from a hill, but there are deeper correspondences, revealed and explored here. 

The author shows that Jesus opened his mission with the beatitudes at the core of his message and concluded it at Calvary with the event which was the core of his mission. The first announced the good news to the world, while the second reconciled men to God. For example, "Blessed are the merciful for they shall obtain mercy" is related to, "This day you shall be with me in Paradise".

Excellent book Terrible Narrator

Fulton Sheen is brilliant, this is a wonderful book, the narrator is terrible. This makes the book unlistenable, I recommend buying a physical copy and read it yourself.

Ruined by narrator

Written version is great. But narrator ruins it with a halting delivery - like they never read it before performing the narration. Another problem: in the first two minutes, there are two very blatant pronunciation issues that would've been solved if the narrator checked: Aquinas is Uh-kwi-nus, not Uh-kwee-nus, and Calvary is NOT cavalry.
