This is the sixth book of Times best sermons to be published. Every previous one has been a bestseller, proof that there is still demand for the ancient art of preaching. Ruth Gledhill reviewed hundreds of sermons written by men and women from a diversity of denominations and faiths and selected the top thirty. Once again, they exhibit a vast range of style and manner, from storytelling to exposition, from simple to complex. They are all skillful in gaining our attention and compelling us to think about their specific messages. The best sermons can be read with enjoyment and returned to frequently as sources of spiritual enlightenment.
