This collection features sixty sermons by Walter Brueggemann, preached mostly 2015-2020. For his final public appearances, he preached at various churches and the Festival of Homiletics, including his last address there in 2018.

Most of these are based on lectionary texts, with numerous sermons on Advent-Christmas and Lent-Easter texts.

Preachers will find inspiration in the handful of sermons covering special occasions or themes, including confirmation, evangelism, and funerals.

 “No one who hears Walter Brueggemann preach forgets the first time. He does not interpret a biblical text as much as he inhabits it, speaking from the inside in a way that makes those who are still on the outside wonder whether it is safe to enter. It never is, when he is your guide. You can hear it in the urgency of his voice, turning the volume up high. You can see it in the energy of his body, plowing the air with his hands as he bends over the pulpit so far that his reading glasses seem sure to fly off his face.

His listeners often remark that being in his presence is as close as they will ever come to being in the presence of Hosea or Jeremiah, though he is clearly a prophet ignited by both testaments of the Bible. If your heart beats faster when you listen to him, it is because his heart beat faster first. The dangerousness of his preaching comes straight from his first-hand experience of a dangerous gospel, with power to wake a sleep-walking world.”

From the Foreword by Barbara Brown Taylor
