Hard Sayings of Jesus Book Review:

Like his original hearers many people today find Jesus' sayings hard. Some sayings are hard because they are difficult to understand, others because the demands they make on us are only too clear. F. F. Bruce examines seventy of the hard sayings of Jesus to clear away the cultural and historical difficulties which keep us from grappling with the real challenge of Jesus' message. Evident in each chapter is Bruce's keen evangelical scholarship and pastoral insight.

Hard Sayings Reconciling the Cost of Discipleship and the American Dream Book Review:

"A blockbuster of a message to the church and to preachers . . . " -Don Wilkerson, President, Teen Challenge, Inc. Can American Christianity really reconcile itself to the hard sayings of Jesus and the teaching of Scripture, or have we invented a version suitable for mass consumption that agrees with our Western ideas of fairness, our so-called rights, and the all-important American dream? In order to make God approachable, have we left out the parts of the New Testament we don't like? Is there a cost to being a disciple of Jesus? How do we reconcile the teachings of the Jesus we find in Scripture with the American Jesus we have created? In Hard Sayings: Reconciling the Cost of Discipleship and the American Dream, pastor and international speaker Joshua West considers these questions and more, and he compares the parables, teachings, and person of Jesus Christ found in Scripture against the pop culture Jesus we have invented in the West. Looking at the entertainment-driven, celebrity culture of the American church, West challenges the reader to reconcile what the Bible calls the cost of discipleship with the American dream.

Hard Sayings Book Review:

Though written originally at odd intervals and in a desultory fashion, the chapters of this book admirably combine to illustrate certain proportions between the temporal and the eternal in questions arising from the doctrine of the Cross. To the serious mind life has many mysteries; the counsels of God seem often inconsistent with human logic, and our hopes and efforts of charity are at times in apparent conflict with our faith. Thus it has come about that whilst in the letter we accept the maxims of the Gospel, in our interpretation and appreciation of them we affect to see the impossible; we minimize and explain away whatever is hard to human nature in the law of Christ, until we have reduced the Cross to a crutch by which we seek to sustain our weakness without testing our spirit of sacrifice. Father Tyrrell opposes the aim of those who "with false kindness have mitigated the hard sayings" of Christ and "prophesied smooth things." He brings into closer view for us the Church, who, "with all her human frailty, ever shrinking from the stern ideal of the Cross, from the bitterness of the chalice of her Passion, when asked, has but one ruthless answer, namely, that it is only through many tribulations that we can enter the Kingdom of God." She teaches indeed that Christ's yoke is easy, "not because it is painless, but because love makes the pain welcome." In this spirit the author treats various problems of life, such as faith in its relation to reason, sorrow and pain in their relation to happiness, virtue and sin with their inexplicable lights and shadows crossing human days. Throughout there is the melody of the "Exercises" of St. Ignatius, like an echo from Manresa, helping us to understand what reason alone would misinterpret, since wisdom comes through the heart as much as through the mind. The book is all the more timely in these days, when not only the obtrusive comforts of life, but modern biblical criticism and a liberal tendency in theology lend themselves to weaken those doctrines of Christianity which war upon the weaknesses of human nature and the spirit of self-indulgence. It is an antidote to the preaching of those modern evangelists who would change the law of the Gospel by explaining away its severity, rather than insist that we should change our lives to conform to that law, and thus subvert the pleasant dogmas of society or of individual self-deception. But Father Tyrrell also knows how to deal with his subject in an attractive manner. His topics, such as ''The Soul and Her Spouse-the Hidden Life-Sin Judged by Faith- Sin Judged by Reason-The Gospel of Pain-The Way of the Counsels -Idealism, its Use and Abuse," etc., give in their very titles a glimpse of the style in which he discusses the different mysteries of life, the study of which often loses its legitimate charm, even to the serious mind, when treated in a purely didactic fashion, or with an apparent effort of sentimental exhortation. --American Ecclesiastical Review, Volume 20

Hard Sayings of Jesus Book Review:

Hard sayings of Jesus are those he spoke which are hard to understand. Some confounded even the disciples, who did not understand or were astounded by what he said. The hard sayings often appear to contradict Jesus' other teachings about a loving, kind, forgiving and compassionate God. How can curious Christians wrestle with their meaning to understand them? This book stimulates engaging conversations for a six-week group study of Jesus' hard sayings. Each chapter contains conversation starting questions, background information, and texts needed to inform the discussion. The Appendix includes valuable tools like 1) The teaching methods of Jesus, 2) Basic questions to consider in bible study, 3) Fast Facts about the authors of the synoptic gospels, and others. The book is especially well-suited for small member-led discussion groups although anyone curious about Jesus' hard sayings will find it enlightening.
