About the Book

Too often we make Christianity into a faith filled with rules. What was it that intrigued so many people to follow Jesus and sit at His feet? As you read through this book, you will be challenged to re-explore the meaning of the Sermon on the Mount and how it frees us to be followers of Jesus.

About the Author

Roberta Karchner, known by her friends as “Pastor Bobbie,” is second-career, ordained Presbyterian (PCUSA) pastor. She has faithfully served a small congregation in Lakin, Kansas, for six years.

She spent many years teaching Sunday school for toddlers to senior citizens. She worked for many years at Wycliffe Associates, in prayer ministry and in communications. She has also acted as a freelance writer to a number of Christian ministries.

While serving as a hospice volunteer, one of her patients challenged her to continue her education and become a pastor, so that she could minister to others on a fulltime basis. At age fifty, she returned to school, and in three years, she completed both her BA in communications and her MDiv.
