This collection of sermons delivered by representatives of different ecclesial traditions show-cases the art of homiletics. Each sermon makes a point or two about core creedal Christian beliefs linked to the liturgical readings and season. The ideas are expressed in edifying language and the sentences are crafted with due attention given to their rhythm so that the congregation is offered some ideas for reflection that are not only true and good but beautiful as well.--Professor Tracey Rowland
These passionate and powerful sermons are as intense as Jacob's wrestling with the angel, as intimate as Elijah bidding farewell to Elisha, and as thrilling as Mary meeting the risen Lord. Those who know only the austere and abrasive dimension of Radical Orthodoxy's reputation will find here food to make their soul grow and an invitation to participate in nothing less than the life of God. Those who believe the word is a sacrament will find themselves worshipping through this book. Those who don't will need to think again.--Sam Wells
