This collection of fifty-two sermons shows beloved New Testament scholar David Bartlett at his best. Bartlett, who died in 2017, spent his career teaching and mentoring preachers at The University of Chicago Divinity School, Yale Divinity School, Union Presbyterian Seminary, and Columbia Theological Seminary, as well as serving as a pastor in American Baptist churches. Thus, he has generations of friends and former students who knew him for his quick wit, passion for justice, and deep knowledge of the Bible.


Those traits show through in these sermons. As Nora Tisdale says in the foreword: “All of the sermons in this volume give witness to David’s passion for preaching that is solidly grounded in the biblical text. Most of them actually begin, as Karl Barth urged preachers to begin, with the biblical text. If they don’t begin there, they always get there fairly quickly. And David’s interpretations of texts often surprise the reader with their freshness and clarity.”



“The best sermons are live events, but when the preacher is gone, a book of sermons is the next best thing. David Bartlett's voice is alive on these pages, singing with the Spirit and with the mind. Read him to learn how a master conveys the Gospel or read him for your own soul's health. Either way, you join the congregation of those who will never stop being grateful for his humor, his humanity, and his never-ending faith both in God and in us.” –Barbara Brown Taylor, author of An Altar in the World
