Take and read

A wonderful collection of essays from a variety of distinguished practitioners chronicles the sometimes jolting and always challenging transition from seminary to pastoral ministry.

In a time when the attitudes of many mainline preachers and congregations toward Paul seem to range from indifferent to dismissive, Rutledge displays the power of Paul and his letter to the Romans and argues compellingly for their centrality to the church’s faith and proclamation.

A deep, excellent book that combines critical exegesis of 2 Corinthians with a theology of preaching. Knowles deplores the contemporary slippage into proclaiming ourselves and exhorts us instead to proclaim the power and mercy of God.
