The Sermon on the Mount. Illustrated

Author: Introduction by the Right Rev. Lord Bishop of Ripon
Publisher: Hodder and Stoughton
Publish Date: 1886

A glorious book for the drawing room table. We do not care for the view of the Mount of Beatitudes with a dead camel and vultures at its foot; but all else is poetical and artistic. Some of the drawings will abide in our memory for many a long day, such as the man with the long countenance and the miser. 

             It gives us great pain to add that we observe in it representations of God the Father, and this sin against the second commandment to our mind spoils all the beauty of the book.
