Sermons for Christ's Church
"I am convinced nothing is more important for the recovery of preaching as a central act of the church than that those who preach trust that God is going to show up when the Word is rightly proclaimed. Too often those who preach fear those to whom they preach when in fact we ought to fear God. If God is rightly expected to show up, if God is rightly feared, then those who preach and those who hear will understand no explanation is required."--From the Introduction
Seventeen sermons, from “Saints” and “Letting Go,” to “Recognizing Jesus/Seeing Salvation” and “Clothe Your Ministers in Righteousness”, as well as two presentations on “Leadership” and “An Open Letter to Christians Beginning College”.
"What is holiness? How does baptism change our experience of this world. Why are so many in ministry sexually irresponsible? Here Hauerwas offers what many Christians long for and never find: practical reflection on what it is to live and think as a Christian. These sermons draw upon deep learning and critical appraisal of the theological tradition, yet they speak plainly to anyone to who goes to church and sometimes wonders why, to use who hear the words of Scripture and repeat the creeds, often wondering how to mean what we say." - Ellen F. Davis, Amos Ragan Kearns Distinguished Professor of Bible and Practical Theology, Duke Divinity School
