Reviews

Not many collections of sermons are published anymore, but Barbara Brown Taylor's volumes appear with some regularity-and that's a very good thing for the rest of us. Her sermons are simple in theme but elegant in expression. * The Christian Century *
She meets serious biblical scholarship with respect, but she avails us of it in an unobtrusive way that disarms any resistance we may have to being taught from the pulpit. Her exegesis is woven into the context of what she is saying so skillfully that it is likely to be welcomed as helpful even by those who might otherwise complain that the Bible is not really meaningful to them or that scripture is no longer authoritative in the contemporary age. * Sewanee Theological Review *
Taylor finds bright and crisp ways of telling us to look for the unconventional revelations of God in this world. She is intellectual and thoughtful enough for serious reading, and contemporary and informal enough to cause those who do not read sermons to make an exception. * The Living Church *
Her velvet touch conceals her iron grip on the deeper truths of the Gospel. * The Toronto Anglican *
Taylor does not use words or images pretentiously or unnecessarily but forcefully and economically. Every now and again, one is handed a phrase which prods one's heart and mind simultaneously, stimulating a devotional response with a prying theological edge. * Anglican Theological Review *
