Has a teacher through their teachings ever left you inspired and utterly transformed? In the Teacher on the Mount the Therapist, Ward manager, and readers are beckoned to climb the highest mountains of faith, purpose, service to others, and life through Mrs. Watkins' and her Mentors' teachings. Mrs. Watkins, a patient, canceled her knee-replacement surgery after having a dream. It is here, in the heart of Johannesburg South Africa, where the Therapist and Ward Manager, with their respective life struggles, meet Mrs. Watkins who shares the teachings of the most excellent Teacher and leader of all time.
This is a provocative book that takes the reader on an interesting journey through the lives of three women and the inter-related growth in their relationships with each other and most importantly with their Triune God of Father Son and Holy Spirit. It is about 'listening' to God's voice in a modern frenetic world. It is also about dealing with the hardships and challenges of life through our relationship with God.
The author simplifies/converts complex issues into understandable concepts and principles using the provocative imagery of mountains as a metaphor to illustrate how we can enhance our ascending relationship with God. She uses everyday life lessons interwoven with relevant and appropriate biblical scriptures which enhance the story. Simply told, the story gives birth to new conceptions of the wonder of our triune God.
