Reviews
""Rather than simply dismissing or embracing the church's complicated relationship with American high holy days, Davis thoughtfully holds these observances up to the light. He encourages us to see what their many facets reveal about God, the world in which we live, and us. As one who preaches most Sundays, I appreciate his invitation to join in this rich conversation that engages Scripture, tradition, and culture with joy, wisdom, and a bit of holy playfulness."" --Ellen Crawford True, Pastor and Head of Staff, Christ Presbyterian Church, Camp Hill, Pennsylvania ""Church calendars are always imposed upon by secular holidays and civic remembrances. Davis's engaging text provides wisdom on how to navigate this temporal dynamic--not through best practices and tricks of the trade, but through a series of personal essays that blend theology and storytelling, prophetic wisdom and whimsical insights, scriptural truth amid life's conundrums. To walk through a year accompanied by Davis is truly a joy and privilege."" --Randall Bush, Senior Pastor, East Liberty Presbyterian Church, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
