In these sermons, Barabra Brown Taylor walks us through the church year from the expectancy of Advent to the fires of Pentecost and beyond. Her themes arise not only from a particular feast or fast, but out of the perennial questions of faith: doubt, grace, anger, and jubilation. These sermons are simply great stories well told.

Barbara Brown Taylor remains one of the ultimate sermon writers of our time. She crafts beautiful turns of phrases and looks at Scripture in a way that's novel and intriguing. She's generally captivating to read.

However, Taylor is not my kind of preacher. She's probably not that great of a preacher as it is. Her style lacks context. She preaches as if she has no congregation. She writes a sermon in a kind of religious masturbation, seeing how much she can pleasure herself without hurting the fee...more

i honestly think she is not someone you can capture in words especially. She is unique. Her imagery
is so clear i feel i am walking down a path with her and seeing and sensing every step - and her
relationship to "god" and others is so different that i am drawn into the bible kicking but not
screaming as she makes biblical truths seem simple and true and of course lovely! You will have
to pick up any of her books as she is so Real and self aware and honest - i say read any one of
them and you may be...more

I have long been a fan of Barbara Brown Taylor. She asks the questions that I'm asking and puts me in the mist of the living scripture. When I research lectionaries I seek what she has written on the text. She is never a disappointment.
Taylor never disappoints. This book of sermons is poignant, meaningful, and deeply theological. My favorites include God's Ferris Wheel, Believing in the Word, He Who Fills All in All, and The Yes and No Brothers.
This isn't just a group of sermons, but a journey through the Christian year from Advent through Pentecost. A fine collection.
