  • Sermons On The Song Of Songs Volume 2

    $29.95

    Taking up Saint Bernard’s unfinished sermon-commentary, Gilbert ruminates on verse 3:1-5:10 in forty-eight sermons, leaving the task to be finished by John of Ford.
    This volume contains sermons 16 through 32.

    To encounter a person who makes holiness attractive is an enviable experience. Such a person was Gilbert of Hoyland, abbot of the Cistercian monastery of Swineshead in Lincolnshire, a friend of Aelred of Rievaulx, and the continuator of the sermons on the Song of Songs begun by Bernard of Clairvaux.

    When the great saint of Clairvaux died in 1153, his sermon commentary had reached only the first four verses of chapter three of the Canticle. Gilbert took up the task, but left the commentary unfinished at his death. It was brought to completion by another English abbot, John of Ford.

    Those who know and admire Bernard’s eloquence and contemplative insight will enjoy making the acquaintance of his successors. While conscious of continuing Bernard’s work and remaining true to his spirit, they infused their sermons with their own personalities and shared their own rich experiences of God. As Lawrence C. Braceland says in his introduction to this first English translation of Gilbert’s work, ‘Gilbert is an experience. He has found the Beloved.’

  • Sermons On The Final Verses Of The Song Of Songs Volume I

    $29.95

    In completing the sermon-commentary begun by Bernard and continued by Gilbert of Hoyland, John ’emerges as a lively and original commentator, writing sensitively from a deep experience of the spiritual and monastic life. Carrying on where his great predecessors, including Saint Bernard, left off, John knows grace and its counterpart humility, are central to all Christian spirituality; he also has an exceptionally keen awareness of the church as a body whose members share in each other’s treasures and rejoice in each other’s blessings’.

    This volume contains sermons 1 through 14.

  • 2000 Year Old Preacher Cycle B

    $15.95

    “I am old and ready to die. To be truthful, I have been ready to die for years, but right now, I feel ready as I have never been before.”

    This quote was taken from one of David Leininger’s sermons titled “Simeon: A Monologue,” in which he takes at one of the most well-known stories in the Bible, Jesus’ Visit to the Temple, and looks at it from a new perspective. Throughout The 2000 Year Old Preacher, he invites his audience to do the same, observing this holiday season from a new angle.

    Consider the story of Mary, the mother of Jesus, and her status as the favored one of God. In his sermon, “Mary’s Complaint,” Leininger references how the favored mother of Jesus does not complain during her complications as she carries the Son of God, but continues to praise His name and remain grateful for the privilege that she had been given.

    Leininger uses a variety of topics to ask his congregation to view their lives from a new perspective, using sermons such as:
    *Advent 3: Hark the Herald…What? (John 1:6-8, 19-28)
    *Nativity of Our Lord: God Bless Santa! (Luke 2:1-20)
    *Epiphany 5: Heroines of the Faith (Mark 1:29-39)

    So take a step back from viewing the forest and look at the trees, have a seat at the feet of God, and experience new worlds that Leininger paints with his words of wisdom throughout The 2000 Year Old Preacher.

  • Were On The Move Now Cycle B

    $13.95

    “Acknowledge your gift. Use your gift for the benefit of others and to the glory of God who has ‘gifted’ you. People may not long remember your name. They may never know your name. But your gift to them will last forever.”

    Throughout his collection of Advent centered sermons, Ronald Love reminds us to consider all of the gifts that God has given us and to use that which makes us unique to spread the word of God. Although it might be an intimidating task to preach about Jesus to those who may believe differently, Love calls to mind the talents that God has granted us in order to do just that. He reveals that the idea of preaching to others is not an invitation from the Lord but is instead a commandment from God: “What we have is a mandate to preach the gospel to all individuals.”

    Even if you do not believe that you are qualified enough to spread the word, God knows that he chose the right person for the job when he created you and me. Instead of doubting ourselves, love encourages us to be like Paul in his letters to the Corinthians: “Paul’s attitude was that nothing will stop him from proclaiming the good news! Paul’s attitude was that no obstacle would stop him from offering the message of salvation! Paul’s attitude was that he would remain steadfast in his call to be an apostle–an ambassador–for the Lord!”

    Sermon titles include:
    *Be Near, Ye Faithful (1 Thessalonians 5:16-24)
    *The Abounding Grace of God (Ephesians 1:3-14)
    *A Child of God (1 Corinthians 8:1-13)

    This Advent season, remember your talents, and share what you have been given with others in order to spread God’s word, just as Love uses his gifts to help us grow closer to Jesus at the time of his birth.

  • Ambassadors For Christ Cycle B

    $15.95

    What does it mean to be an ambassador for Christ? This is the question that John Jamison asks throughout this Lenten season. During this time where we remember Jesus’ final weeks and actions before his death and resurrection, we must ask ourselves how we can live more like Jesus did, and how we are showing God’s presence to the world? Jamison uses a unique mix of historical fact and modern examples throughout his sermons to show his congregation the many ways that the disciples had lived in Jesus’ example, and how we can do the same. Although we all have those days where we may not act in a way that is befitting of Jesus, Jamison reminds us that there are no requirements for who can be saved by God’s love, for he sent his son to die for all people. So, do what you can today, and do your best to help others using the gifts that God has given you. Remember that nobody is without God’s grace, and that you should love others as you are loved by your Father in heaven.

    “The pastor lay awake with the feeling that tonight, he had seen the church as it was meant to be. He had seen those people doing what he believed Jesus would have done. He had been a pastor for many years, but what he saw tonight amazed him. As he walked into his office and joined that nine o’ clock meeting, he was exhausted, but he felt like the church, and he, had been reborn.”

    Sermon titles include:

    Seventeen sermons based on the Second lessons from the Revised Common Lectionary (Cycle B) for the seasons of Lent and Easter are included in this single volume. The reader will find these messages inspiring, thought-provoking and comforting. The content of this book will be useful for sermon preparation, study groups and for personal devotions.

  • Gratitude On The Prairie Cycle B

    $14.95

    “But faith in Christ calls us out of solitary pursuits. Faith in Christ calls us to proclaim Christ where the hurt is the worst, where despair is the deepest, where hope has never been born. We can’t sit under our telescope or at our desk and respond fully to Christ. We have to feel the brokenness around us. We have to be touched, even wounded by it” (page 15). Thomas Willadsen challenges his readers to look at Christ’s sacrifice for us in a new way, to feel the brokenness and challenges that Jesus suffered for us. The challenge of being a Christian is that it is not always easy to spread the good news of God’s love for us.

    However, Willadsen points out that this call to spread Christianity has its rewards, even if we do not realize them at first. “You may discover that you have interests and abilities you didn’t realize. You will make new friends and deepen existing friendships. You will learn–I insist on that! –and you will be given opportunities to respond to Christ’s call, to Christ’s sacrifice” (21). No matter the place you are in your life or your destination, Willadsen encourages us as Christians to love others, and to be as Christ for everyone we interact with. Though this might not be easy, Jesus’ ministry wasn’t simple either. Become like Christ through your actions. Love like Christ through your words. Suffer like Christ when people reject you. But overall, remember that you are loved by Christ.

    Sermon titles include:

    *”It’s Lonely at the Top” (Esther 7:1-6, 9-10, 9:20-22, Psalm 124, Mark 9:38-50, Numbers 11:4-6, 10-16, 24-29)

    *”Seeing with the Eyes of Faith” (Psalm 34: 1-8, 19-22, Jeremiah 31:7-9, Psalm 126, Mark 10:46-52)

    *”Steadfast Change” (1 Samuel 1:4-20, 2:1-10, Hebrews 10:11-25, Mark 13:1-8)

  • Ashes At The Coffeeshop Resurrection At The Bus Stop Cycle B

    $14.95

    Lent can be one of the more difficult church seasons to go through, but if God is right there alongside us the whole time, there is nothing to worry about. Mary Austin assures us that God is with us everywhere that we go this Lenten season, and that Jesus is closer to us than ever, even in this time of his fast approaching death and betrayal. However, this does not stop Jesus from being selfless, as he continues to do God’s work and form stronger bonds with his disciples. In the same way that we do not want to be alone during this Lenten season, Austin encourages her audience to also be there for Jesus, letting him know that he is loved: “This week, as we come into Holy Week, let us see Jesus as he is, and keep him company in this journey of suffering. And may he go with us, in every place where we feel abandoned, lost, fearful, doubting…so we know that we are never alone” (“Never Really Alone”).

    Austin continues in the idea of emphasizing that nobody is alone during this Lenten season, not even the disciples of Jesus like you and me. Although we may have our doubts, our fears, our lack of faith throughout our lives, Jesus does not turn away from us. “Jesus sees all of this in his friends, as he sees it in us, and what does he do? He comes closer” (“Feet and Hearts”).

    Sermon titles include:
    *Fifth Sunday in Lent: “Seeing What We Don’t Want to See” (John 12:20-33)
    *Second Sunday of Easter: “Growing into Our Scars” (John 20:19-31)
    *Seventh Sunday of Easter: “Gifts You Can’t Return” (John 17:6-19)

    Eighteen sermons based on the Gospel lessons from the Revised Common Lectionary (Cycle B) for the seasons of Lent and Easter are included in this single volume. The reader will find these messages inspiring, thought-provoking and comforting. The content of this book will be useful for personal devotions, for a study groups and for sermon preparation.

  • Real Time Ministry Cycle B

    $14.95

    “John’s gospel challenges us to explore what calling we have, one which we are willing to give our lives for, that also points us beyond this life. This is a Pentecost question for both the church as a group and us as individual Christians” (59). Our callings will vary from person to person, and even throughout our lives, you may not find your true calling until later. This was certainly true for David Coffin, who did not follow his calling into ministry until the age of 29. Unlike many of his coworkers, Coffin was working for an envelope manufacturing company before he applied for seminary and began his walk closer to God. Although his classes were challenging and his life lead him through various twists and turns, he could always turn to God in times of struggle and be reinvigorated.

    During Pentecost, when the Holy Spirit descended on Jesus’ disciples, many Christians are looking for a similar sign from above, telling them what they should do with their life. Coffin encourages his readers to instead take this time to search out their true callings, regardless of where they are in their life journey. No matter what trials you may encounter along the way, Coffin uses his own experiences to prove that God will be there for you, and that every hardship happens for a reason, though it may not be immediately clear. Although this season of Pentecost may not be as flashy or miraculous as we want, it will still change our lives for the better if we focus on God and his messages for us.

    Sermon titles include:

    *”New Life Goes On” (Mark 5:21-43)
    *”Bread and Call” (John 6:35, 41-51)
    *”Belonging at the Table” (John 6:51-58)

    Fifteen sermons based on the Gospel lessons from the Revised Common Lectionary (Cycle B) for the first half of the season after Pentecost are included in this single volume. The reader will find these messages inspiring, thought-provoking and comforting. The content of this book will be useful for sermon preparation, study groups and for personal devotions.

  • Funeral Sermons That Proclaim And Celebrate

    $12.95

    “So today we gather to share our love and our stories with one another. We come to hear the voice of the Good Shepard reflected in the voice of family and friends. We cry together and we laugh together and we know that in both we are embraced in the arms of our loving God.”

    Taken from one of George Reed’s many funeral sermons that make up Funeral Seermons that Proclaim and Celebrate, Reed teaches that the passing of a loved one should not be seen as the end of a life, but rather the beginning of a new chapter in which the deceased has been reborn with God in heaven. Throughout his book, he encourages his audience to remember their late relatives and friends through their memories, of all the good times spent together. He reminds us of how the deceased’s actions display God’s presence in the world. Their life, though beautiful like a rainbow, similarly cannot last forever, but the memories of that rainbow lives on in our memories long after its passing. “We will miss the physical presence of NAME but we know that the joy of this rainbow will continue in the presence of God for all eternity and that someday we will again enjoy the fullness of that blessing.”

    No matter who your loved one is, or how you want them to be remembered, Reed has offered the guidelines on how to honor them perfectly, using sermons such as:

    – “Comfort My People” (Isiah 40:1-8)
    – “Many Rooms” (John 14:1-4, 18-19, 25-27)
    – “God’s Fullness Within Us” (Ephesians 3:14-21)

    Throughout this time of grief and mourning, Reed encourages us to remember peaceful memories of our loved ones with whom we will be reunited in heaven.

  • That The Two May Become One

    $15.95

    What is the difference between a wedding and a marriage, and how can a happy couple prepare for it?

    These questions are a common theme in Rev. Dr. John R. Nagle’s That The Two May Become One: The Good News Of God’s Love Shared With The Happy Couple, where he often draws the distinction between the happy day itself and the lifetime of union through times both shining and dim that follows.

    Beginning from illustrations encompassing the bride and groom, the gathered friends and family, the circumstances of the day and the world around them, these sermons smoothly transition to connect to scripture, often chosen by the bride and groom in question. Though the chosen readings are sometimes the same, the application of the verses and the resulting messages are not.

    Throughout all the sermons the love of God is shared, biblically-based guidance is given, and the importance of Christ’s role in marriage is emphasized.

    That The Two May Become One collects and presents Rev. Dr. Nagle’s wedding sermons in the hope that both new husbands and wives and couples celebrating years together might find them good counsel. In all cases, this collection encourages couples to take a moment to reflect on how they can live out their lives and marriages in the love of God.

    Some sermon titles include:
    *What It Means to Be Tied Up (Ecclesiastes 4:9-12)
    *The Bridal Couple’s Emergency Kit (Colossians 3:12-17)
    *Here’s How You Keep In Touch (1 Corinthians 13:1-13)
    *Go For The High Notes! (Psalm 98:1-9)
    *More Than A Pile Of Rocks (Matthew 7:24-27)

  • Collected Sermons Of David Bartlett

    $40.00

    This collection of fifty-two sermons shows beloved New Testament scholar David Bartlett at his best. Bartlett, who died in 2017, spent his career teaching and mentoring preachers at The University of Chicago Divinity School, Yale Divinity School, Union Presbyterian Seminary, and Columbia Theological Seminary, as well as serving as a pastor in American Baptist churches. Thus, he has generations of friends and former students who knew him for his quick wit, passion for justice, and deep knowledge of the Bible.

    Those traits show through in these sermons. As Nora Tisdale says in the foreword: “All of the sermons in this volume give witness to David’s passion for preaching that is solidly grounded in the biblical text. Most of them actually begin, as Karl Barth urged preachers to begin, with the biblical text. If they don’t begin there, they always get there fairly quickly. And David’s interpretations of texts often surprise the reader with their freshness and clarity.”

    In addition to individual sermons, several multiweek sermon series, including a series on Who Is Jesus? and Great Words of the Faith, are included.

  • Revising The Agenda Cycle A

    $17.95

    The reality is that the vast majority of people in a typical congregation do not want themselves or their world to be transformed by the gospel. Instead, they want the minister to help them make life easier to manage while they and their world stay the same in every important respect. The Christian life is a life of continuing conversion. Baptism may claim us as God’s own beloved, but the children of God must grow up and mature. Jesus invites his followers to “Take my yoke upon you and learn from me” (Matthew 11:29). This is a life of ongoing transformation, not merely by our own effort, but by welcoming Christ’s Spirit to make us more like him. In every sense, we are Christians who are still becoming Christians. If there was a governing theme for the sermons, that seems to be it.

  • God Is : Meditations On The Mystery Of Life, The Purity Of Grace, The Bliss

    $34.00

    Your God is too small-way too small! What if God is not a human-like personal being but the God Beyond God of the Christian mystical traditions? What if God is the ultimate reality beyond all beings, including beyond all divine beings, indeed beyond all Being? It’s a mind-bending idea. Speaking of God as a human-like personal being is much easier but people who care about the deepest mystical understandings of God within our traditions need to make the effort to speak about the God Beyond God, despite the difficulties. This book makes the attempt to speak of the God Beyond God in the language of the sermon, using metaphor and potent imagery tuned to the existential intensities of human life. The God Beyond God is closer to us than our jugular veins, vividly present in every moment of our lives. These sermons are practical and moving, and they also resonate with the most rigorous theological understandings of ultimate reality. Their deconstruction of our convenient fantasies about a divine being make these sermons emotionally intense and perhaps not suitable for beginners in the journey of faith. But veteran believers can breathe deeply in the air of these meditations, relaxing into the bliss of engaging ultimate reality without delusions, without deflections, and without controlling the object of our worship.

  • Watch This Cycle C

    $15.95

    It is often challenging to discuss with new believers – or even seasoned believers – the meatiest parts of Christian theology. You can’t exactly answer these questions in the course of an elevator ride.

    “What is the Holy Spirit? How does it work?”

    “What does it mean for God to be in three persons?”

    “Are demons really in the world? What are Christians supposed to do about demon possession?”

    Dave Zuchelli draws from the Gospels of Luke and John to give you tools to wrestle with these questions. Whether from the pulpit, in a small group or personal conversation, the sermons inWatch This!remind us to enter into discussion with humility. To sit with our guests at the last seat at the table.

    The Lord will meet you there.

  • Rebellious Faith Cycle C

    $17.95

    “Go against the grain.”

    This is what Mark Ellingsen wants your church to hear in A Rebellious Faith. It isn’t merely odd or contradictory in the eyes of the world to live a Christian life. It is offensive.

    To go against the grain – by discounting our accomplishments, carrying no shame in the light of grace, considering no one outside of God’s love – is to sometimes make people who worship hard work, the quest for perfection and exceptionalism deeply uncomfortable.

    And that is a very good thing.

    Ellingsen begins with the irrevocable truth that the ashes we put on our living bodies at the beginning of the Lenten season represent the death we all deserve. From there, he leads your congregation through the brazenly offensive, un-American ideas presented in the New Testament.

    Confession does not shame and isolate us, it liberates us. Bearing the cross of our sin is not a burden, but a blessing in the knowledge the Lord has paid the ultimate price for our sin. The Resurrection does not make anyone exceptional. It unites us all whether or not we are ready to enter Heaven together.

    A Rebellious Faith reminds us thatthe war is already won, and we are to live as brave sinners whose Savior cannot be overcome.

  • Last Days Cycle C

    $15.95

    Do you serve people who feel like underdogs?

    The story of Jesus’ last days on Earth, as recorded in the Gospel of Luke, provide some of the New Testament’s most powerful inspiration for the “underdogs” among us.

    Richard A. Hasler draws from a deep well of modern-era stories to illustrate Jesus’ words of comfort and hope to people who seemed foolish, destined to lose in life.

    Learn how Albert Schweitzer “wasted” his gifts to become a missionary to equatorial Africa; how Feodor Dostoevsky depended on the grace of God to create beautiful work out of a broken life; how one young believer ministered to a woman living with a family of Satanists in an unlikely place; and more.

    These 12 sermons included in The Last Days reminds us we have the strength to serve, persevere and trust in Jesus Christ, even when doing so looks foolish, because we follow the king of underdogs … until the last days and forevermore.

  • Luke Alive Volume 2

    $15.95

    “Do you feel as though God favors you? That He is on your side? That He is always with you?”

    These are the questions Robert Blair asks in the 13 sermons in Luke Alive, Volume 1e Alive, Volume 1. They cut straight to the Christian heart. They address our greatest fear: that we might not be good enough for God. That we might not enjoy his favor.

    Blair does not stop short at dismissing our fears with a casual overview of grace. He addresses where they come from, a natural drive to earn favor, to work toward something we can never fully attain ourselves. The Gospel of Luke shows us what we can “earn” with our actions and what we can’t.

    In the sinful woman who cries at Jesus’ feet and cleans them, we see the image of genuine gratitude for forgiveness. In the healing of the crippled woman, we discern that it’s always time to do good for other people.

    Luke Alivee Alive guides ministers through our deepest of Christian fears and desires, and offers satisfying answers based firmly in scripture. It is a must-have volume for pastors seeking to answer direct questions with plain language, whether from the pulpit or the living room couch.

  • Luke Alive Volume 1

    $15.95

    “Do you feel as though God favors you? That He is on your side? That He is always with you?”

    These are the questions Robert Blair asks in the first of 13 sermons in Luke Alive, Volume 1. They cut straight to the Christian heart. They address our greatest fear: that we might not be good enough for God.That we might not enjoy his favor.

    Blair does not stop short at dismissing our fears with a casual overview of grace. He addresses where they come from, a natural drive to earn favor, to work toward something we can never fully attain ourselves. The Gospel of Luke shows us what we can “earn” with our actions and what we can’t.

    In Mary, the Mother of Jesus we have an image of what it means to be chosen, to be given the Lord’s favor. In Jesus’ proclamation of the year of the Lord’s favor at Nazareth we see that, favored as we may be, there is a kind of favor we can earn when we seize the opportunity. In the story of Jesus and his disciples picking grain on the Sabbath we learn that we do not earn favor by following rules.

    That’s when it gets really exciting.

  • 1st Order Of Business

    $13.95

    * Spiritual resource for Bible study and reflection/discussion prior to church meetings * Passages deal with common issues of group life (conflict, change, leadership, vision, burnout) After years as a member of parish staffs and as a congregational and diocesan consultant, Judith Carlson became increasingly aware how seldom Bible study or some spiritual component is incorporated into church meetings. Even when they want to, busy lay people worry it will take “too much time” or aren’t sure what scripture to use or fear they “don’t know enough” about the Bible. Clergy too, despite good intentions, often have trouble finding time to prepare something. This simple model provides a way to add the missing (and needed) spiritual dimension. First Order of Business contains 36 brief sessions, 12 minutes a piece. Each has a scripture passage and three open-ended reflection questions-open-ended to fit a variety of situations (though not automatically suggesting “right answers”) and allowing some genuine reflection in a non-threatening way. Carlson’s hope is that allowing “space” for the Spirit’s presence can transform ordinary “business as usual” into a broader, more spiritual context for a group’s work of mission or ministry.

  • Meeting God At The Mall Cycle C

    $15.95

    Americans are mired in idolatry. This is perhaps at no time more evident than during the Christmas season.

    What idols do we worship? We often point out the consumerism that eclipses the meaning of the holiday, but as Mary Austin points out, there are others that might escape our notice. Perfectionism, that belief that if we can host the perfect holiday party or keep a perfect house, for example;thesefalse gods, we often believe will offer us wholeness. Busy-ness, too, can give us a false sense of worth.

    These sermons use the words and actions of Paul to call out these false gods, to reveal our idolatry and its cause: our longing for the true source of peace. Once we have determined the cause of our love/hate relationship with the Christmas season, we can begin to pursue the counter-cultural cure.

    Meeting God at the Mallting God at the Mall shows us there is no obstacle too great to prevent us from finding our way back to the peace we can find only in our loving Savior.

  • Shouting Joy To The Storm Cycle C

    $15.95

    How are we to respond when the violent storm of change rolls into our lives?

    Should we hide from the storm? Hide in the status quo?

    As this volume of sermons reminds us, that is not the way of the Christ.Followers of Jesus are called to believe that our greatest treasure ought not be found in the comfort of worldly life as we make it. The Lord calls us instead to step outside and face the coming storm, as he did.

    When we do, we face all manner of fears in a world that does not like its order challenged. Mockery when we follow God; poverty when we stop worshipping money; grief when we are vulnerable enough to love the oppressed.

    Shouting Joy to the Storm reminds us that, just as the Father partnered with the Son to bring him through the storm of Calvary, so he will bring us through our storms. We are not in this for a mere lifetime. We are in it for the long haul.

    “They shall no more be a prey to the nations, nor shall the beasts of the land devour them. They shall dwell securely, and none shall make them afraid (Ezekiel 34:28, ESV).”

    Sermons include:
    *Long View – The Long Haul(Luke 13:31-35)
    *What Is Truth? (John 18:1-19, 42)
    *Death Shall Be No More (John 13:31-35, Revelation 21:1-6)

  • Focus On Jesus Cycle C

    $16.95

    Every time Rev. Derl G. Keefer preaches a Christmas sermon, he asks himself the same question. Why did Jesus come to earth?

    It’s the question that Jesus’ earthly parents, Mary and Joseph, must have asked themselves over and over. They struggled to understand why, when he was 12 years old, he would leave their care to join the scholars of the temple.

    His answer served to refocus his own parents on who he really was.”Did you not know,” he asked them, “that I must be about my Father’s business?”

    The 15 sermons contained in Focus on Jesus will provide four answers to the question of why he came by revealing the nature of the Father’s business as described in the Gospel of Luke:
    *Jesus came to be the fulfillment of prophecy.
    *Jesus came to be our Messiah.
    *Jesus came to be our Savior.
    *Jesus came to be the human face of God.

    This Advent season, utilize Keefer’s clear, simple teaching style in Focus on Jesus to help those seeking Jesus understand who he is, and to reignite the passion that first brought members of your congregation into his arms.

    Chapter 7. Passover And Way Of Salvation

    Chapter 8. Circumcision And Holy Communion

    Chapter 9. Exodus And The Feast Of Unleavened Bread

    Chapter 10. Life Of Obedience And Blessings

    Additional Info
    “Spiritually eating unleavened bread means to forsake the world and take the narrow way. After we accept Jesus Christ, we have to lower ourselves and go the narrow way to reach complete salvation with humble hearts.”

    In this book are portrayed, in contrast, the life of Pharaoh, who disobeyed the word of God, and the life of Moses who led a life of obedience. It also contains the love of God who with His limitless compassion lets us know the way of salvation through the celebration of Passover, the law of circumcision, and the meaning of the Feast of Unleavened Bread. Pharaoh witnessed the power of God but still disobeyed Him, and he fell into an irreversible state. But the Israelites were safe from all disasters because they obeyed.
    The reason why God tells us about the Ten Plagues is to let us realize why tests and trials come upon us, so that we can solve all the problems of life and lead a life free of any disaster. Furthermore, by telling us about the blessings that will come upon us when we obey, He wants us to possess the heavenly kingdom as His children.

    Additional Info
    “Because Job thinks that his horn is being trampled by God and his friends, that pain was greater than losing all his possessions and children and the pain of boils. In order for us to become perfect children of God, we have to break our horns.”

    The Book of Job scrutinizes the heart of men very deeply and tells us about the evil and our true nature in the depths of our heart, thereby letting us realize ourselves. Ultimately, through this book Man of Flesh, Man of Spirit I, we can find out whether we are men of flesh or men of spirit, and it also gives us the methodology on how to change into men of spirit. ‘Flesh’ means something that changes, untruths, and darkness, and ‘spirit’ means the truth, unchanging and eternal things, and world of light.

  • Walking With Jesus

    $15.00

    Sommerton House

    Walking with Jesus is a collection of 32 sermons from the Gospel of Matthew. All the sermons in this book are based, at least in part, on texts from the first Gospel, though not all the sermons I preached from Matthew are in this book. The sequence of the sermons here follow the order of the biblical texts. The sermons were preached in Navy chapels and civilian churches over a period of many years, as internal references to events of the times will suggest. Though all were written in full, they were written to be heard (in public) rather than read (in private). The publication of this book and its “colleagues” is an effort at Christian stewardship. Like most preachers, I spent thousands of hours over a number of decades researching and preparing sermons. What came out of that effort may still be of value to others who are even now proclaiming the good news of our faith. I hope you will find something to inspire, inform or perhaps intrigue you, as the work of so many others did me as I worked to put sermons together for God’s people in my care. The full biblical text for each sermon has been provided in the book either before or within the sermon, as a convenience to you. The different versions of the Bible used in the book reflect the particular preferences of the various congregations I served. The footnotes you will find throughout are a later addition, for your benefit. When actually quoting scripture, I have included the version used. When I paraphrased (which I seemed to have done a good deal of), or merely alluded to a passage, no version is provided in the footnote. I have also given scriptural citations for ideas or assertions in the sermons that are based on biblical authority. Several sermons are based on the same passage. This is to be expected when one has followed the Revised Common Lectionary for many (though not all) years in the preaching process. I have provided indices at the end that should help the Bible student “navigate” the book more comfortably and profitably. I have appreciated such “helps” (when they existed) in the books of sermons I have consulted over the years. I hope they will be of benefit to you. And I hope and pray that something in these pages will make the time you spend here a blessing to you and will enhance your ability to walk with Jesus.

    Additional Info
    Today, there are many people who go on with their lives not even knowing what sin is, what righteousness is, and what judgment is all about. Even those who go to church don’t have assurance of salvation, and they live secular lives–just like everyone else in the world. Furthermore, they do not lead Christian lives that are righteous according to God, but righteous according to what they think is righteous. So Concerning Sin, Righteousness, and Judgment is the first book of the Holiness and Power sermon series which deals with how we can lead a successful Christian life by receiving forgiveness for our sins and by accomplishing the righteousness of God in our lives.

    To confirm this teaching with evidence of His power, in the first session of the first day of our revival in 1993, God promised the blessing of conception for dozens of couples who were married for 5-6 years, and even as long as10 years without conceiving a child. By the end of the revival, almost all of these couples conceived and began raising families.

The third part, ‘Perfect Love’, is the conclusion of the Love Chapter, which lets us know that faith and hope are needed temporarily while we are marching towards the kingdom of heaven during our lives on this earth, while love lasts eternally even in the kingdom of heaven.

    Additional Info
    “How can we accomplish the heart of God who is light, receive His power, and lead countless people to the way of salvation? First, we must not only avoid every kind of evil and accomplish sanctification, but also achieve the good of the heart and long for the uppermost good. Next, we must accomplish spiritual love.”

    The Power of God has attempted to introduce the process in which one meets God and receives His power, the different levels of power, the Most High Power of Creation that goes beyond the limit permissible for a creature human being, and the places at which His power is manifested.

    The power of God the Creator descends upon an individual as much as he resembles God who is light.
    Furthermore, when he becomes one in spirit with God, he can manifest the kind of power Jesus manifested. This is because in John 15:7, our Lord tells us, “If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.”

Emerging from an era of mutual suspicion, the three streams have developed a better understanding, shared mutuality and respect for each stream’s unique qualities, and cooperated in many venues, qualities reflected in this collection. The Living Pulpit 2018 helps preachers and scholars recognize where preaching has been–and why it has been there–in each stream, and where preaching appears to be going in a new mission field for Christianity and the Unity Movement.

    “Through the Bible, we learn that even disease is under the sovereignty of God, that He protects those who revere Him from disease, and that disease will infiltrate those who sin because He will turn His face away from such individuals.”

    In order to receive fundamental healing and lead a healthy life, each of us must comprehend from where an illness has originated and how we can receive healing. God has plainly promised blessing for those who obey and live by His commands, while He has also recorded in detail of the curse and all types of disease that will be inflicted on those who disobey His commands (Deuteronomy 28:1-68). By reminding unbelievers and even some believers who overlook the word of God of principles in receiving healing, this work seeks to place such individuals on the right path to freedom from sickness and disease.

  • Not Exactly What They Expected

    $15.00

    Sommerton House

    The Resurrection of Jesus Christ is the bedrock fact of the Christian faith. And though it was proclaimed with power by His first followers after the fact, at the time, it was not exactly what they expected. The same is true for the enemies of Jesus, those who arrested Him after He left His Last Supper and arranged for His crucifixion on that Friday before the Passover feast began. They had not expected the Resurrection at all. In fact, just about everything involving Jesus leading up to-and including-His Resurrection was not exactly what the people present expected, whether they were for Him or against Him. Not Exactly What They Expected is a collection of almost thirty sermons preached on Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter. It may be exactly what you would expect of Holy Week and Easter sermons-or it may not. But whatever you expect of the sermons, the Subject of these sermons will exceed your every expectation.

And as you come to all the old, familiar places, you may discover that God has come too-to adore you. And as you experience His loving adoration of you, perhaps your adoration of Him will be born anew.

  • Sermonettes For A Sunday Morning

    $31.99

    Approximately four years ago, I–a healthy, energetic, independent woman–became so ill that I was practically bedridden. I needed assistance for all the things I took for granted in my daily life.

    Before my illness, I exhorted Sunday morning service, preached God’s Word, and ministered to the congregation. I had always been considered hyperactive. I worked out four days a week. I tried to be the dedicated wife and mother that God had instructed women to be. I worked as a public school teacher and as executive director of Sure Foundation Child Care Inc.; I maintained an immaculate house and the Grace Cathedral International complex.

    I pastored along with my husband, Bishop R. W. Harris. We were a team. We were visionaries. With God’s help, I would make sure I encouraged, not hindered, his visions for the ministry, and he did the same for mine. God moved in miraculous ways for us.

    It was difficult for me to comprehend suddenly becoming so ill I could barely function. This illness (that has yet to be completely determined) became what I thought at the time, a sour lemon in my life. I never asked God why but what. “What do you want me to do in this situation?” I was inspired to make sweet lemonade with my sour lemon.

    God allowed me to write this book in my limited physical condition. Because I was not able to stand and preach from the pulpit, I wrote a sermonette for the Sunday morning bulletin each week. Some of the sermonettes were a series that covered several Sundays. God has blessed me to use those weekly sermonettes for this book.

A Biblical pattern for worship is presented.

  • Sovereignty Sermons Of Jonathan Edwards

    $14.95

    Though largely associated with the Great Awakening, Jonathan Edwards leaves an amazing legacy as a theologian and preacher. He left a remarkable body of work, including the six sermons featured in this collection on the sovereignty of God: “It was of the sovereign pleasure of God, that he contrived a way to save any of mankind, and gave us Jesus Christ, his only-begotten Son, to be our Redeemer.”

    Sovereignty Sermons of Jonathan Edwards is a fine sampling from this renowned preacher. Each sermon is a brilliant and personal invitation to know God through both our intellect and our affections-compelling us to open our hearts to the sweet love and joy available to us in our life in Christ.

    This collection includes the following six sermons:
    * God Glorified in Man’s Dependence (including Advertisement to the Reader, Respecting the First Sermon)
    * God’s Sovereignty in the Salvation of Men
    * Wicked Men Useful in their Destruction Only
    * A Divine and Supernatural Light
    * Praise, One of the Chief Employments of Heaven
    * A Farewell Sermon (including Edwards’ Preface)

  • Sinners In The Hands Of An Angry God And Other Sermons Enlarged And Expande

    $12.99

    “Christ has thrown the door of mercy wide open,” and He stands crying out to all to accept His call. Delivered more than 250 years ago, “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God” by Jonathan Edwards remains the most famous sermon ever preached in American history. He presents a clear picture of the predicament of every sinner and lukewarm Christian, while showing how we can know we have God’s favor, avoid the tricks of the devil, and find our reward in heaven. With compelling words and now-classic imagery, Edwards describes the shaky position of those who do not follow Christ and God’s urgent call to receive His love and forgiveness today. This new, updated edition includes two other sermons that demonstrate the great mercy of God as well as Edwards’ own pastoral heart: “Pardon for the Greatest of Sinners” and “Many Mansions.”

  • Mark His Word Cycle B

    $15.95

    Jesus told his apostles to “count the cost” of following him. For the twelve, it meant leaving their jobs, their homes and families. It meant literally taking up a new life and leaving the old one behind.

    What is the cost of following Jesus today?

    Frank Ramirez challenges the modern Church as he explores that question in Mark His Word: Cycle B Sermons for Proper 16 through Thanksgiving Based on the Gospel Texts. Using analogies from the space race to a science fiction short story by Isaac Asimov to the diary of a Civil War-era abolitionist preacher, Ramirez paints a variety of pictures of what it looks like to act in allegiance to the cause of Christ, to answer the call of the Holy Spirit no matter the consequences.

    The pastor who utilizes Mark His Word will see a church reinvigorated in time for Advent, prepared to step forth courageously into the world to live and speak truth to a world dying to know it.

    Lessons Include:

    “No Turning Back” (John 6:56-69)
    “For Us or Against Us?” (Mark 9:38-50)
    “Give Thanks for What?” (Matthew 6:25-33)

  • Like A Phoenix Cycle B

    $16.95

    The season after Pentecost has had several different names over the years. It has been called “Ordinary Time,” which meant that the Sundays were numbered, not that they were common or mundane. It has been called “Kingdomtide” as the celebration of the imminent nature of God’s Kingdom breaking forth in the world as both present and future reality. And it has sometimes just been called “The Time after Pentecost.” Whatever we choose to call it, it is often felt as a slow-down, or a sag in the enthusiasm and energy of the church. Rarely does anything new begin in the summer. It’s a time of waiting for vacations to end and school to begin again so we can get back to the business of doing ministry. The sermons in Like A Phoenix offer the goal of bringing new vigor and vitality into the life of the church even in the hot months of the year when everything and everyone is calling us to slow down and take it easy.
    Since the season after Pentecost is drawn out it may be more difficult to come up with sermon ideas. This book will help ease the burden. A busy pastor will have more time to focus things other than sermon preparation, especially during the summer, with vacation time in full-swing.

    This book may be used for:

    Sermon preparation
    Independent or group study
    Inspirational reading

    Some Sermon Titles Include:

    Together in One Place (Acts 2:1-21)
    Meeting Jesus (John 3:1-17)
    Meet the Rose Family (Mark 3:20-35)
    Little Start, Big Finish (Mark 4:26-34)

  • Saints Alive : Claiming The Saints For Protestant Preaching

    $12.95

    Over 20,000 visit the unincorporated farming community of Maria Stein, Ohio every year to visit the National Shrine of the Holy Relics, which displays around a thousand relics of Roman Catholic saints. Rev. Dr. Alex A. Gondola, Jr. would often visit this peaceful setting and, as he watched devotees come to honor these figures and pray, he realized he didn’t quite “get it.” Could there be spiritual enrichment for him, a Protestant, in a place like this?

    Discover the answer for yourself in Saints Alive: Claiming the Saints for Protestant Teaching, sermons from a year Rev. Gondola devoted to preaching on one saint per month. He offers this volume as a companion for pastors and group leaders prepared to take a deep dive into matters of faith, calling and the hope Christ offers the world through his humblest of servants, from St. Augustine to Mother Teresa.

    Seasonal sermons include:

    St. Patrick: “Christ in All Things” for Lent
    Nicholas of Myra: “An Advent Saint” for Advent
    You and I: “Called to Be Saints” for Year End/New Year’s Day

  • Imagining The Gospels Cycle B

    $13.95

    Imagining the Gospels: Cycle B Sermons for Lent and Easter Based on the Gospel Texts is the latest from Rev. Timothy W. Ayers. As a pastor who writes his messages while also writing novels, children’s books, and short dramas, Rev. Ayers found himself working hard to visually create the picture of what was hap-pening in the gospel accounts. Why? These were people lis-tening to Jesus. They would have had emotions about the topics. They would have had little things they recognized when Jesus spoke about lambs, shepherds, and vines. Much like our congregants, there would be nods of recognition toward experiences in their lives. His goal was to get the listener to imagine themselves, with their feelings, and their rea-sons for being in church, to better use their cognitive skills, inside the stories.

    At other times, Ayers sought to take them on a week by week journey through the Easter season. He didn’t assume they have a relationship with Christ. He didn’t assume they are vibrant, serving members of the congregation. He only assumed that the listener is seeking something they do not have. He was attempting to take them one step further on a journey from week to week.

    At times Rev. Ayers brings humor to the scene in order to lighten the mood of the listener. The body relaxes when we laugh and that helps us to hear the message. Imagining the Gospels hopefully will achieve this.

    This book will make life easier for any busy pastor during the Lent and Easter season, by providing a sermon for each and every Sunday, when attendance is likely to be at its highest.

    This book has several intended uses:

    Sermon ideas
    Inspirational reading
    Bible study with individuals or groups

    Some Sermon Titles Include:

    Beginning The Lenten Journey (Matthew 6:1-6, 16-21)
    Tearing The Sky To Get To You (Mark 1:9-15)
    Did I Say That Out Loud? (Mark 8:31-38, Mark 9:2-9)
    The Road To The Passover (John 2:13-22)
    A Nod Of Recognition (John 3:14-21)

  • Redemption To Transformation The Journey Of Lent And Easter Cycle B

    $13.95

    If the Lenten journey is traversed successfully, then we can fully enter into the celebratory time of Easter. Yet, even as we observe these events we must acknowledge that the challenges of the Christian life are ever present. We should never forget British writer G.K. Chesterton’s admonition in What’s Wrong with the World (1910), “The Christian life has not been tried and found wanting; it has been found difficult and left untried.” The Easter season reminds us that despite the triumph of Christ there will always be challenges to our belief. We seemingly cannot believe unless we see; yet we know that faith often is beyond proof and, thus, beyond sight as well. We are also challenged to discover ways of transforming problematic situations and what appears to be defeat into triumph through the grace of God. Additionally, this great season of grace teaches us that we must continually evaluate what we do and keep our eyes fixed on Christ and his mission and message. Finally, as Jesus ascends to the Father, we come to realize that the Lord’s work in not complete and, therefore, each day presents us with the opportunity to do something to complete the master’s work.
    The cycle B second lesson sermons of Reverend Richard Gribble’s Redemption to Transformation: The Journey of Lent and Easter represent an understanding of the challenges presented us through this highly significant and very special journey. The church in its wisdom gives us this opportunity annually to review where we are and, after ascertaining our present position, the challenge to move to higher realms that are more consistent with our common Christian call to holiness. It is hoped that these reflections will be helpful to you as together we travel the path from Lent to Easter, and eventually to Christ and eternal life.
    Redemption to Transformation: The Journey of Lent and Easter provides a second lesson sermon for every Sunday of cycle B, which will provide the following advantages:

    To give busy pastors ideas for their sermon creation
    To make the day-to-day life of being a pastor easier
    To free up time for counseling, visitation, or just your own leisure

    Some Sermon Titles Include:

    Suffering Leads to Victory (1 Peter 3:18-21)
    Enduring the Trails of Faith (Romans 4:13-25)
    The Cost of Discipleship (Philippians 2:5-11)
    Sacrifice Leads to Life (Hebrews 10:16-25)
    Rising to New Life (1 Corinthians 15:1-11)

    * What does it mean to be a “prophetic follower of Jesus”?

    * How will lessons in Scripture and across human history inform our action in the world?

    * How can we speak of hope in a time of deep division-a time too often defined by racism, misogyny, materialism, militarism, religious nationalism, and xenophobia?

  • We Preach Christ Crucified

    $15.00

    Gerhard O. Forde wrote and taught powerfully about the primary importance of proclaiming the gospel of Jesus Christ. In an article in the Lutheran Quarterly, he wrote: “Let us be . . . radical preachers and practitioners of the gospel by justification by faith without the deeds of the law. . . . What is at stake is the radical gospel, radical grace, the eschatological nature of the gospel of Jesus Christ crucified and risen.” The sermons in this book were prepared for congregational worship and seminary chapel services. They accompany scripture readings throughout the church year. They encourage, they reprove, they explicate tenets of the faith, they focus the biblical story. And without exception they point to the loving God who comes to us in Jesus Christ, that great good news of God s grace.

  • Unique Time Of God

    $40.00

    World War I changed Karl Barth’s theology forever. In this book William Klempa presents for the first time in English thirteen sermons that offer Barth’s unique view and commentary on the Great War. Barth saw the war as “a unique time of God,” believing it to represent God’s judgment on militarism. The sermons reveal a deep strain of theological wrestling with the war’s meaning, as Barth comes to see the conflict as the logical outcome of all human attempts to create God in our own image. As it demonstrates a decisive shift in Barth’s early theology, this volume is essential for anyone who wishes to understand the twentieth century’s greatest theologian.

    Two voices, fourteen sermons…

    The lives of David and Marian Plant have been intertwined for 46 years, their mutual ministries, for even longer. Their voices were shaped by their ministry experiences that began together in shared, co-pastorate positions, and then matured into individual settled ministry positions and then again, moved into their own specialties of the last 20 years: Marian, in the teaching ministry and David in the interim and church revitalization ministry. Marian’s voice is one practiced well from a traditional setting of pulpit with written text in hand. David’s voice is one practiced in a relational style of informal conversation, often done without notes, and in back and forth dialogue with the gathered worshipers.

    Their latest work, Surprise! Surprise! Surprise! provides fourteen cycle A gospel sermons for Lent/Easter. In these sermons you will see the mix of the lives of the Plants, committed to social justice, the important context of the role of the church as that which speaks for Christ, and the importance of the need for individuals to take up the challenge of living their faith more fully. There is no doubt that their mutual passions for addressing the ills befalling our culture and our world were foremost on their minds, and they could not but help influence one another’s work by virtue of their lives lived in the practice of ministry and marriage. They offer these words to you, as colleagues in ministry, even if only a sentence is valuable to you.

  • God At Work Cycle A

    $12.95

    The lectionary Gospel readings for the first third of the season after Pentecost (Pentecost Sunday through Proper 12-Cycle A) launch us immediately into a series of teachings by Jesus, many in the form of a parable, about what it means to follow him in the Kingdom of God. Only three of the eight readings, for example, narrate distinct events in the ministry of Jesus. Given the heavy pedagogic emphasis in the other eight lections, it would be easy to treat discipleship as a thing or an object to be studied at a safe, intellectual distance. Nothing could be further from what author Kevin Mohr believes the Holy Spirit wants us to experience as we grapple with these readings. The parables and teachings of Jesus in Matthew, chapters seven through thirteen, illustrate what began at Pentecost: God is at work in the world through those who believe in Jesus Christ. Through these musings the reader might be able to catch enough of a glimpse of God at work to be caught up again into what God is doing in Christ Jesus through his church.

    The sermons presented in God At Work are generally more topical or thematic than expository. All of them have been edited from their original context of sermons shared with the people of English Evangelical Lutheran Church in Bluffton, Ohio. But the liveliness and spirit of these messages have not been lost in the editing.

  • Grace And Peace Cycle A

    $17.95

    Easter may be the highest holy day in the life of the church but in American culture that honor goes to Christmas. Christians often find themselves trying to straddle the divide between Christmas as “Christ Mass” and Christmas as a family gathering and a retail extravaganza. In Grace and Peace, Dean Feldmeyer’s latest collection of sermons for Cycle A, the seasons of Advent, Christmas, and Epiphany are celebrated by acknowledging the secular, cultural parts of the season and, at the same time, they are first and foremost celebrations of God’s incarnation in the living Christ.

    Sermon titles included
    Surprise! Surprise! Surprise! (Matthew 24:36-44)
    Less Fear; More Fruit (Matthew 3:1-12)

  • So Great A Cloud Of Witnesses

    $21.95

    Chapters Included In This Book:
    The Supplanter: Jacob
    My House Will Serve The Lord: Joshua
    The Sword Of The Lord: Gideon
    The Outsider: Ruth And Boaz
    The Sweet Singer Of Israel: David

    Additional Info
    One of the insights of people of faith is that God is active in history as he seeks to bring creation into conformity with his purpose. There have been those in every age who have discovered something of God’s purpose and have attempted to pass it on. Sometimes, God’s activity has been reported in supernatural terms, but fully as often, the activity of God is revealed in the faithful actions of human beings. For that reason, the Old and New Testaments are filled with the experiences of individuals who have discovered God’s presence in their individual circumstances.

    David Rogne’s So Great A Cloud of Witnesses will give readers an appreciation for the people of faith who are presented, and humbly recognize the cost borne by so many to deliver the faith to us. They are a great cloud of witnesses. They have played their part in relaying the faith to subsequent generations, and they are now filling the stands in the heavenly arena, eager to see how we continue the race.

    Witnesses have been chosen from varied backgrounds so that it may be seen that people from all walks of life are called to live faithfully and to witness to God’s truth. The entire known story of some of these individuals, such as Joseph, the husband of Mary, may be just a few verses of Scripture. Some, such as the Wiseman and the Emmaus disciple, are not even named. Nevertheless, their witness is important. Rogne attempts to give life to the testimony of these less-well-known witnesses by giving them names and employing a little imagination. In every case, the subjects tell their stories as they might have experienced them.

    Chapters included in this book:
    The Supplanter: Jacob
    My House Will Serve the Lord: Joshua
    The Sword of the Lord: Gideon
    The Outsider: Ruth and Boaz
    The Sweet Singer of Israel: David

  • Charged With Grandeur

    $12.95

    “THE WORLD is charged with the grandeur of God. It will flame out, like shining from shook foil; It gathers to a greatness, like the ooze of oil Crushed.” — “God’s Grandeur” by Gerard Manley Hopkins

    Charged With Grandeur: Sermons and Practices for Delighting in God’s Creation is a collection of sermons that encourage congregations to improve their stewardship of the environment by delighting in God’s creation. Each sermon is paired with questions for reflection that could be used in follow up discussions, as well as “take action” suggestions for congregational participation.

    Author Christopher Keating wrote this book with the purpose to assist preachers as they prepare sermons about the environment. Bogged down by the “data of despair,” and by the political nature of environmental concerns, many pastors avoid speaking about environmental issues. Yet the Bible is filled with ecological references that point to God’s concern with the natural world. Charged With Grandeur provides resources that help congregations celebrate creation while also discovering ways of improving our stewardship. This is an excellent resource for pastors, church members, as well as congregational Earth Care teams and seminary students.

    Included in this book:

    Questions for reflection and action
    Ideas for ways individuals can “take action”
    Sermons that incorporate creation care elements
    Ways to discover connecting environmentally oriented scriptures into worship and preaching
    Sermon titles included:
    Visiting Our Stuff
    Casting Out into the Deep
    Listening to the Song of Creation
    Paths of Danger
