Preaching The Luminous Word features insights from one of the most distinctive and eloquent scholar-preachers of our time.
Inviting serious theological engagement with texts from all parts of the Christian Bible, noted preacher Ellen F.
Davis offers fifty-one engaging sermons. A brief preface sets each sermon in its geographic and liturgical context, highlights distinctive themes, and draws attention to elements of structure and rhetorical style.
The sermons are arranged in canonical order and cover a wide scope of texts - Torah, Prophets, Writings (including Psalms, Proverbs, Lamentations, Song of Songs, and Job), Gospels, Epistles, and Revelation.
Also included in the volume are five choice essays by Davis that discuss various aspects of biblical preaching.
At once accessible, theologically informed, and richly instructive, these sermons will engage Christian readers at any stage of their faith journey.
